What Raythe Reign is doing for Valentine’s Day…

KRR-valentine-laptopsat sez…

I recently read an article in some esteemed internet publication (ahem) about Valentine’s Day.  It was about how more and more people are celebrating it not as a romantic holiday, but with their friends.

That’s exactly what we’re doing!  You can see Raythe’s laptop in the foreground, and me typing on mine in the background, writing this very post.

Accompanied by healthy food and sugary drinks, Raythe and I are celebrating Feb 14th doing what we love to do: RR business!

For those who don’t know, Raythe & Kat live 6 blocks from each other and get together often in real life.  But they met a year after RR had started in one of those weird, made-for-TV-movie twists of fate.

Here’s what what’s going on:

  • We just finished up discussing release plans for Artifact 2.  When that comes out Artifact 1 will go perma-free on Amazon and in our shop.  Of course, the books will be free for our Members, too.
  • After Artifact 2 comes out, Raythe’s switching gears to the novelized series of Cursed!  If you’ve read the serial version of our M/M retelling of Beauty & The Beast, you’ll know that the Cursed book series will be the same story with the same characters, but also really different.  Just expect more: more angst, more depth, and more sex!  Again, these books will be free for Members at the time of their release.
  • I got a peek at the outline for Merman 2’s debut on the serial schedule.  We hope you are as excited as we are to give Aemrys his own story with sexy, smart surfer Spencer Long.  This is only one of THREE Merman 2 chapters this week!  (My interpretation: Raythe is insane!)

What’s in those fancy glasses?  It’s our “house cocktail,” which we named Nilfgardian Lemon.  I invented it one hot day last summer when we were playing The Witcher 3, and Raythe happened to have limoncello in the freezer.

Want to make some yourself?  It’s easy and delicious.

  • “Some” limoncello, depending on how strong you want it
  • 1/4 – 1/2 lemon, squeezed
  • “Some” sparkling lemon-flavored soda water
  • Ice… if your ice maker works

Anyway, happy Valentine’s Day!  Raythe is typing away, reading me choice bits of the first chapter of Merman 2, and I’m off to refresh our glasses…

    *zooms on the picture*
    *get her eyes closer to the screen*
    *goes to get a magnifying glass*
    *searches on google if it’s actually possible to make a photo less blurred than it is, like in the movies* (it’s not)

    I can’t reaaaad!!! >< I think there might be the word "Spencer"? So first chapter is in his POV? And then I think it's written in the middle something like "What?! What is coming?"… tough really it could be "Walt is cumming" for all I know, and if that is so I hope Walt is not the name of the dog! XD

    Meh, I really can't read it's too blurred. Sigh. I'll have to wait a few more hours I guess… ^^

    Spending the evening with friends is the best! I personally spent my evening with my computer and Photoshop haha.

      Kat made it so you couldn’t read … Just to tease! This chapter is BOTH from Spencer’s and Aemrys’ POVs!

        I lied. I think it’s just going to be Spencer’s since there’s so much for him to think, say and do. Not to mention Grandma G and Corey!

      Kat and I always have a blast. Seriously, food, drinks and good conversation (normally about you guys).

    Do you guys keep a conference schedule or something similar? Curious to know what kind of events you attend, if you table to hock goodies, greet fans, etc.

      We don’t do conventions as most of them are far away from our home base in Chicago. We do support conventions that come to us with free books for convention attendees, etc.

    Oh how fun your Valentine’s Day seems to be!! Hope it was enjoyable and you enjoyed your very yummy sounding drinks.

    I am rather excited about hearing that Artifact II will be released soon. I really enjoyed Artifact I, which I actually just purchased my copy of the book through Amazon about a week ago, and now I hear it will be for free, but that’s okay, since I do not mind giving money to support the great writing on Raythe Reign.

    So much fun happening and so many great stories coming out, I’m very excited and I thank you for the update!!

      Ah! You can totally return it. We’ll have both books available for download free to Members.

      The night was really fast.

    In my country even the name we use for Valentine’s refers to it being a day to remember and appreciate your friends. It has always been weird to me even decades after learning that it’s supposed to be something super romantic for couples.

      That’s very, very true. I have always had more fun with friends than lovers on days like this.
