Read Our Story

We’re a partnership built on love, business, and coffee.

Rocket Expansion’s directors, Matt Ziranek and Sonja Graser, decided we would have a whole lot more fun working together and building something amazing than we would on our separate career paths.

It’s proven to be a great decision.


Matt comes from the visual arts. He’s done virtually everything visually creative you can imagine, from enormous oils paintings to life-sized classical greek statues to furnishing architectural enrichments for Russian castles.

He’s no stranger to the digital arts as well…

In more recent years, Matt fell madly in love with digital marketing, becoming SEO certified under a famed SEO project manager for PayPal and Airbnb.

Sonja has a formal and professional grounding in graphic design, web design, and digital marketing.

With a former corporate career in creative marketing for local and international lifestyle brands, Sonja has been a key player in creative marketing teams for nearly two decades.

An adventurer by heart, she’s crossed the Atlantic by yacht, climbed the highest mountain in Africa, and is just generally a badass.

I can’t praise the team at Rocket Expansion enough. Throughout a complete overhaul involving a new web site, change in hosting, email templates and more, my experience was of a passionate, dedicated group with technical brilliance and artistic flair. I felt like I was in safe hands, and still do, and I look forward to working with the team in the future.

Rocket Expansion redesigned my author website and did an outstanding job in every aspect. They were able to hear my vision for the site and turn it into something remarkable and unique. It is truly a work of art. Their expertise shows in both the quality of the design and the details of the interactivity users experience. It’s a living, breathing site that you want to spend time looking through. I was also wholly impressed with the level of customer service. They addressed quickly my every nit-picky comment, and they made sure the site was running flawlessly – and still continue to do so. Highly recommended.

I engaged Rocket Expansion to create an expansive website for my author brand. To say they did a good job, is the understatement of the century. From start to finish, Matt and Sonya were complete professionals, and bring a real X factor to web design.

I would put the finished product up against any independently published author’s site, and many trade published author’s sites as well.

Finally, since cost is important, when I selected Rocket, I accepted bids from six different website design firms. Accounting for what they did in terms of work (a few companies proposed making a template and then having me fill it in, but Rocket did /everything/), art design and overall coolness factor – they beat out everyone else during the bid phase by leaps and bounds.

I would recommend them to anyone looking for an outstanding web site.

What Is It Costing You To NOT Have A Rocket Expansion Website?

Turning Away Readers

If your current website (or lack of one) isn’t professional, well designed, and provides a clear user-journey, you’re turning away readers and book buyers right now.

Writing Energy Wasted

All the energy and creativity you’re putting into your writing will go to waste if potential readers don’t have a good impression of you when they look you up online.

Publicity Opportunities Lost

You could be missing out on publishers, promoters, and media scouts because they’re turned off by your average or amateur looking website

Audience Staying Small

You’re probably missing out on a ton of email list growth because you don’t have a website that gives your readers a clear attractive online journey to get to know you and your books
