Award-winning and bestselling speculative fiction author and artist Raven Oak is best known for Amaskan’s Blood (2016 Ozma Fantasy Award Winner, Epic Awards Finalist, 2019 Reader's Favorite Award Winner), Amaskan's War (2019 UK Wishing Shelf Award Finalist), and Class-M Exile.

When she’s not writing, she’s getting her game on with tabletop games, indulging in cartography, or staring at the ocean. She lives in the Seattle area with her husband, an

The Hidden Power of F*cking Up by Keith Habersberger
"2.5/5 stars

Alright, I think I'm awake enough to explain the rating now. Odd that I've never really felt the need to explain myself before, but for this book, I am? Nothing makes sense.

I want to preface this by saying I am a long-time 'Try Guys' fan. " Read more of this review »

Making Connections: 3559. AMASKAN'S BLOOD by Raven Oak 8 61 Mar 19, 2015 07:56AM  
Andrew  Boyd
“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.”

Somehow I totally missed this question! Eek!
Writing is going well! Amaskan's Blood is coming out in January and I've got a sci-fi novel coming out in the summer of 2015. How about you?
Are you talking about the ECWC or Emerald City Comicon?
