The latest 3 serials on the Raythe Reign lineup all have something in common: they were all driven by Member feedback.
This insanely popular serial came directly out of that poll we ran last year. This poll generated huge amounts of ideas, which were later refined in more polls and discussions. What we have now is a brand new world of vampires, intrigue, vamp religion, mystery, and mature characters who don’t adhere to the yaoi stereotype, but are far closer to American action leads.
The atmospheric fantasy Elven King’s Blade also came out of that poll. Both these ideas were so popular that during the “runoff” vote, Raythe decided to do BOTH of them. Member feedback is directly responsible for these two very different stories.
If Raythe only wrote novels to publish on Amazon, she would never have written Sanctuary 2. It makes no sense to people who aren’t already familiar with the characters. They’d have had to be familiar with both Sanctuary 1 and Winter Haven Country Club, first, with its enormous cast of characters.
But this is the beauty of writing for a Membership — she gets to write what Members want.
There were multiple people who chimed in, wanting to know what happened to Peter. They also didn’t want to leave this society of vampires. So, Raythe fit Sanctuary 2 into the schedule, with all its plot twists.
