This is the official website of speculative fiction author, Christine Rains.


My newly designed website. What do you think? Xan the dragonslayer is more than happy to show you around. And by more than happy, I mean only slightly less irritated than any of the other characters I considered featuring on the site.

Big nerdy news! I signed a three book contract with Ellora's Cave. I'll be part of their special call for geeky romances and erotica, Geekgasm. The editor said she loved my sense of humor and I had her laughing from page one. My trilogy is called Dice & Debauchery. It's full of nerdy jokes, sweet romances, and steamy scenes. The first novella of the series, "Loose Corset" will be released on January 9, 2015.

Coming Soon

Twisted Earths - An Untethered Realms anthology. Coming October 2014.

Twisted Earths is a collection of tales from Untethered Realms, a fantastic group of speculative fiction authors. The stories are as varied and rich as the types of soil on this and other planets—sandy loam, clay, knotted with roots and vines, dreaded paths through unexplored planets, and in enchanted forests, lit by candlelight and two moons.
