Nectaria asked:

I'm about 99.9% sure that I'm still pronouncing Ryiah's name wrong. How is it actually pronounced?

Rachel E. Carter Think of how you pronounce "rye" bread -that strong "I" sound:) So "rye-uh" or "rye." My best friend still calls her "Ree-ah" so it's all good either way;P
Kelly YES, I was pronouncing it correctly! haha
I was trying to figure out whether it was Ree-uh or Rye-uh, and settled on the long -i pronunciation once i saw her nickname was Ry.

Loved your books - I just read the first two in less than 2 days, and apparently just in time, too, since book 3 just came out on Amazon an hour ago. It is already on my Kindle waiting to be read lol. :)
Miranda I started with "Ree-eye-uh" but then was saying "Rye" for the nickname, so ended up with "Rye-eye-uh" because with only two syllables I couldn't justify the existence of the i. ;)
Amanda at Brains, Books, and Brawn wow so I've basically been pronouncing it wrong forever.
