About Rhiannon Louve

Rhiannon Louve is a freelance writer. Professionally, she writes short stories, video game dialogue, table-top role-playing books, privately commissioned fiction, and the occasional Pagan thea/ology. For fun, she writes whole series of novels. In addition, Rhiannon has her MA in Applied Theology and has taught World Religions at the college level. In her spare time, Rhiannon attends local conventions (OryCon, RadCon, GameStorm, and others) and games (Champions, Star Wars, and a 1/2 Exalted 1/2 homebrew Bleach-inspired shinigami game at the moment, though she wants to start a Blue Rose game). She also sings and plays keyboard, cuddles her dogs and cat, and pursues a primate psychology and language-study hobby (French, Spanish, Japanese, Irish, and Swedish).

Rhiannon's Inspiration

"I wanted to write for Blue Rose because I believe in what the Blue Rose game stands for. It's a different type of fantasy storytelling that I think a lot of players crave, and that isn't always easy in the older, traditional tabletop rpgs. I adore the other type too, but Blue Rose fills a niche that I think desperately needed to be filled, and I was so excited when Green Ronin put out a new (even better!) version of the game! I was even more excited when I heard there would be tie-in fiction. I knew I needed to write Blue Rose fiction. I'd have been happy with whatever story I got to do in the Blue Rose world, but I'm super grateful that this was the story the editors liked best. It was my favorite of all my pitches.

"I don't see a lot of fiction about older women, and I have a thing for big strong warrior women, so that's where I got the idea for Marn. She seemed like an underrepresented and super cool sort of character. Once I had the concept for Marn, the grizzled veteran, I thought, well, for Blue Rose I need relationships. What sort of relationship would most utterly turn Marn's world upside down and shake it? And then I came up with Kiyn. Everything mostly fell into place after that. I'm a very character- and world-driven writer, so once I have those settled, the plots tend to happen organically. I love writing about Marn and Kiyn. They give me warm fuzzies."

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
