rĀthe about it at the Texas Book Festival!

rĀthe® is making its Texas Book Festival debut in the Exhibitor Tent #1, Booth #104 on October 26th and 27th in Downtown Austin.  

Although we are not at the “big kids table” we are pioneering the way to the future of marketing, packaging, delivery, of fun, surprising, thrilling, romantic, hopeful fantastic stories to iPhones, designed to be enjoyed, on the go– a little at a time. 

We’re extremely excited to be a part of the Texas Book Festival!

The value of reading is monumental for all for all ages!  Through story we transported into worlds our minds imagine in real time from the words that created them.  That’s a one of a kind experience for each person!

rAthe is an electronic publisher based in Austin.  Our recently released, patent pending mobile app delivers that experience to your iPhone,  625 words at a time — for a dime!

Dial up, drop in, hang out, or just pop by, all on your schedule from the comforts of anywhere you are with your phone.  Our Authors works are available right now, today on the App Store, rAthe – About it! App is free, First Episode of every Title is free too! 

At the Texas Book Festival, get a chance to glimpse into the following creators of those worlds.
