Raythe Reign produces romantic, sexy paranormal and urban fantasy M/M fiction.
The stories are set in “alternate worlds” from high fantasy to futuristic cities with hot heroes who fall in love and save their world.
When you join as a Member, you get 3 types of content:
- Downloadable books – the same books that are available on Amazon and our own shop.
- Serial stories and manga/graphic novel pages updated every day.
- All the finished stories in our serial archive.
Books are free to Members in our library, downloadable in PDF, ePub, and Mobi formats. They are the same books that are available for individual purchase through Amazon and our own web shop, only the price is included with your Membership!
Members also get the books *before* everyone else except our beta readers.
Current Serial Stories & Manga
Most of Raythe’s work is – and will always be – in serial format. Every month, she publishes chapters 3 times per week, rotated evenly across 5-7 continuing stories. These stories are all the same kind of supernatural and paranormal M/M romance.
While we can’t promise that if you like one story, you’ll like them all, a lot of our Members sign up because they’re hooked on one story… and then read and enjoy the rest while they wait!
And 4 days a week, we post manga pages for our long-running serials. We work with a few house artists who produce beautiful work in both Western and Asian styles.
Finished Serial Stories
The serial content is not limited to the stories currently running on the monthly calendar!
The books are the tip of the iceberg… the real gold mine is our 6 years’ worth of serial stories. Almost everything Raythe Reign has published is in our finished story archive.
A one-month Membership gets you all this in your first month! Try us out for 9.95:Sign up here.
We do realize that serials are an unusual format. First of all, most authors would rather die than have their readers see their work as it comes out. But Raythe loves the feedback and lively conversations that go on after each chapter.
— But this is good news for readers who don’t want to wait a year or more for the next story! Instead, you get to read chapters the instant they come out.
We have an extensive FAQ for questions such as “Do the updates come on time?” and “Can I cancel anytime?”
Readers as Partners
From the beginning, Raythe Reign members are more than just “people who have to pay to get our content.” A huge part of the reason for doing a serial site is because readers love to participate. Most often, this is by leaving feedback on individual chapters. Members also can make suggestions about upcoming stories and sway the course of a story’s plot development!
More than once, members have saved a story from going off the rails. Though we’ve certainly gotten a variety of comments, it’s all part of the experience! We have never regretted letting our readers in as participants, not just spectators.
We don’t believe in the “author on high” model of traditional publishing. Readers are partners. They deserve a say — they have a real stake in the stories.
As a Member, you get the opportunity to post your feedback the instant a chapter is published and discuss it with other Members. Raythe personally responds to almost everyone!
You must be over 18 years old to subscribe to Raythe Reign. All our works are 18+ for sex, violence, and other mature themes. While we do not produce “porn,” we do have adult scenes and, occasionally, content that can get very disturbing. (It’s the stuff of nightmares…)
If you’re not yet 18, come back when you are! We’ve been here since 2010. We’ll still be here when you are legally allowed to join us.Sign up here.
All of our serial stories are M/M romance in subgenres of:
- urban fantasy
- high fantasy
- space adventure.
Whatever the setting, the core of our stories is always romantic adventure: heroes who fall in love, discover awesome abilities, kick some ass and save the world from evil.
The stories usually range from 150,000 words – (gulp) 350,000 words. This is because they often have epic multiple plot lines (and multiple couples), mysteries to uncover, and powers to develop and explore.
The Completed Stories archive.
Members don’t just get the current stories – they get every completed story we’ve put out since 2010 – the entire back archive. That is over 15 stories, most over 100,000 words! Even our “power readers” have told us that there is more than they can read in a month.
Most of the Membership serial stories will stay serials, but we have reworked a few of our favorites into stand-alone series. Members get these books for download if they’re an active member at the time of release.
The reworked books are usually very different from the serials — we think of them as novelizations, not rewrites, since the serial format and the novel format are so different.
Why a serial site?
First, there’s Raythe. Raythe is not a typical writer. While most authors would cringe at releasing chapters that haven’t been edited, polished, and perfected, she sees herself as less of an “author” and more of a storyteller.
With a serial site, you get living stories. The stories change and grow in response to the feedback that Members put in. Just as a performer will draw out a moment that enraptures a live audience, Raythe will also give Members more of what they want when they contribute their responses.
