As some of you know, we are redoing the shop! But we're not just giving it a facelift so that it looks as awesome as the new main site, but it will also have NEW things for you to purchase such as prints and other merchandise. But while the shop is for me to have RR shirts... uhm, wait, what? Okay, the shop is really for YOU. Which means that we need to know what you want, and also what you are willing to actually BUY.
So please answer the questions below HONESTLY. You will not hurt our feelings if you do not want something. We are only going to put on the shop things that you will buy. The shop will launch with a curated selection of items and we will rotate in things that you want and rotate out things you don't.
Plushies and an art book are in the works, so when you get to the last poll question, which asks you what YOU want that we haven't mentioned keep that in mind.
We will start off with the following stories that will have prints: Dragon's Reign, Ever Dark and The Elven King's Blade. We want you to pick ONE MORE story to have its art up for the launch. Remember that we will be adding and rotating out stories so if your favorite isn't chosen for the launch, no worries, it will be up later.
The poll below is looking to see what things other than Prints and the Manga you would actually like to purchase. We'll put together the top contenders for the launch based on your selections. Remember, if you're lukewarm on something, that's okay! Don't select it. Only vote on things you really want to buy.
The above are our best guesses that we have on what we think you want. But now, we want to hear what we are missing. Where would you like us to put our time and your money? Again, just put down those things that you really want and would pay for. An art book and plushies are already being looked into so don't put down those.
As for other things (not mentioned) Maybe pens/pencils (to go with those spiral notebooks and journals).
Bookmarks! I collect bookmarks, and ones with the covers of your books on them would be fantastic!
Oh, I like that idea! I'd voted for stickers because I wanted a small thing I could definitely afford and would probably use, but bookmarks would work just as well.
I collect card decks, but I think that one might be both not very popular and probably not a good RoI, alas. Especially since I don't collect just interestingly backed decks, but decks where the cards themselves are different (I have, for example, a deck where each card is a different fish native to Florida). But I'm going to amuse myself imaging some of the king characters and their partners as the king and queen cards. The jacks would clearly be beloved third wheels (I'm looking at you, Corey, my dear).
Iron on patches
I for one would love a pumper sticker with the Raythe Reign logo or my favorite Book Title in the script you have it in on the website. Just take the art for each book at the top of the website and make that into a pumper sticker. You could also do magnet. I use magnet on my frig to leave paper notes or to just hold mail.
My want is a general addition to the new site that the old site had.
Please bring back the "Top" button.
It was so convenient once you had finished the story/chapter update, there was a button that said "Top".
Which when you pressed it, would bring you back to the top of the page.
Right now, you must manually scroll back up to the top to get anywhere because all of the navigation buttons are on the top of the page.
Otherwise, loving everything so far.
This post isn't about the site. This is about shop items. But...
The Top button was part of the theme from before. I don't think that's available here. So having Jeremy hardcode something might be something we'll do if its really wanted by a lot of people, but we have a lot of things we're doing and there's only a few of us. So you might have to deal without. But we'll keep it in mind.
Maybe wallets? People love to buy wallets based on their fandoms.
I would love plushies or any sort. Also 5x8 photo type stuff to make a collage!
Like postcards? I love that!
Was it ever decided if m-preg was going to be written? If so, I am very interested in reading what your brain can come up with. Maybe start with something short, then just go all out?...maybe? I am reading The Dark Earth chp 6. Can't wait to get home to get started again!
I've said this quite a few times, but no, I am not into mpreg and will not write it.
Why not have a gay couple adopt? That would be cute.
I'm not into family stories like that. The closest you'll get is a younger sibling.
I love collecting decks of cards. It's like a mini art book. Sometimes it's different scenes on every card or individual characters or both. And they're funchional.
OK. so for Christmas, I bought my friends the carnival-retro set along with those little cut out scissors ( link below). They came as cardboard cut outs with stand and sheets of clothes to cut out... By the way we are all over 30 and very Gay - so this little item was a hit ! ( we all had easy bake ovens as kids) Needless to say after a few beverages the imaginations were running wild.
While reading and re-reading the whole WinterHaven/Fell Universe I found that I had kept a list of the couplings that fell into the Daddy/Boy personae:
Jordan/Scott, Alric/Ethan, Stephanus/Cole, Emry/Nate, Nomad/Flynn, Demetrius/Alex, Hans/Peter, Asher/Aiden.
A friend just called and said he wanted to get another set - and the light bulb went off as I glanced at my DB list on the wall....WHU Paper Dolls for adults of course. The cut-outs arrive waiting to be clothed... with clothes to cut out that they wear...I mean, they all seem to have a silk bathrobes, and the boyz wear jeans or nothing at all ) and let us not forget cashmere v-neck sweaters...Like, everything for Stephanus would be White.. and of course Nomad's armor, and Alrics robes. toys...so much could be added. And of course my BF who has somewhat of a lascivious mind said they would be great for the read alouds...
Anyway that's my idea for the store... it's a gift that keeps us coming and going and giving...
fixed the link
I want "Forbidden" to be completed! 11 years is a long time between updates...
I'd happily buy the paperback
Chaz - Forbidden is a fanfiction. You cannot sell fanfiction. Disney, I'm sure, would have something to say about it. I got your email but its been a decade since I wrote anything on Forbidden and do not recall what I intended (if I even knew at the time). It would have changed as I wrote it. I only write original fiction now, which if you truly want to support me and not Star Wars you should check out. Thanks. I won't be answering any more questions about Forbidden.
I’m having a problem finding a way into the podcast for Dragon Reign. Is there a direct link for it? I feel a bit stupid asking because it’s probably in plain sight LOL.
