Of River and Raynn will be released August 12, 2014.

"I always hear about how my readers feel engulfed in my novels. I wanted to bring that to life in another way. I wanted to surround them by words, and characters, and experiences that would bring the world to life," said Rebecca Ethington.
Experience this world for yourself; it's free, online and in real time. The fun has just begun. Check out http://riverandraynn.com.
