What is spiREUTS, you ask? Our fantastic Twitter followers dubbed the creation of writer/REUTS related cocktails as spiREUTS, an insanely clever play on the REUTS name and “spirits”. Birthed from this moniker, REUTS author Drew Hayes took it upon himself to create four author inspired cocktails (which he had the unfortunate task of tasting along the […]

Marketing Monday: Tumblr Toward a Bigger Readership

Dear REUTS fans, Due to the epic and FABULOUS craziness that is Project REUTSway (and also Pitch Wars, which I am mentoring next month), I must admit that I completely lost track of this week’s original Marketing Monday post.
