Head writer & fearless leader
Founder of Raythe Reign. Publishes under X. Aratare (wraith in Romanian!) for stand-alone novels. She is responsible for every twisty, turny, sexy scene in the Raythe Reign archives... and since 2010, that has been quite a lot of words!
The business half
Raythe's assistant and business strategist Kat has a hand in almost everything business-related, including creating ads, writing blog posts, arranging con sponsorships, and strategic and creative development.
Patient solver of tech problems
Our sainted tech support and site developer! When he's not answering tech support questions, he's developing the technology for the next version of Raythe Reign and generally fixing problems before they happen.
Painter of impossibly beautiful people.
Mathia Arkoniel is the Raythe Reign house artist who does all our covers, background art, and character portraits, as well as a few of our manga. As one of the core members of Raythe Reign, we consider Mathia's art to be the "face" of Raythe Reign.
We’ve been running RR since 2010! While we have expanded quite a bit in our staff and offerings, our core, the serial Membership, has remained our focus. We’re just getting better and better with all we’ve learned.
No, but we run ourselves like one — a tight ship! We look for the best possible staff to support the many functions of the business and have regular meetings. Our aim is to create a brand, just like Wizards of the Coast, League of Legends, or any other fantasy entertainment provider. We keep pushing for recognition outside the LGBT+ market. Not only are the stories just plain good entertainment, but it’s important to us, our members, and our readers not to be segregated as gay entertainment.
No. We are not set up to handle submissions, but with Amazon’s KDP program, what are you waiting for? The world is waiting to read your work!
There are individual ebooks, paperbacks and audio books to buy, which you can find by searching for "Aratare" on Amazon, Audible and Apple. You can also find all our manga on our Shop. We have a full listing of all the Ebooks, Audiobooks and Paperbacks here.
If your question is really how many completed Raythe Reign serial there are, they are listed in our Library.
Perhaps like the publications of old, when there were continuing stories.
These days, magazines are excuses for ads. We are the opposite of that business model. We charge money up front for our content (the stories and artwork) and that’s what you get: pure content. No placed media, no ads, no distractions, and no 3rd party data collection. (It’s true what they say — if something is free, you become the product.)
Occasionally, we do, and the best way to keep on top of them is to join one of our mailing lists or buy something from our Shop. Current Members get copies of individual ebooks for a short amount of time included with their Membership.
