She also has many published short stories in anthologies and magazines. She’s even published on the moon! (No, really!) Raven spent most of her K-12 education doodling stories and 500 page monstrosities that are forever locked away in a filing cabinet.

Besides being a writer and artist, she’s a geeky, disabled ENBY who enjoys getting her game on with tabletop games, indulging in cartography and art, or staring at the ocean. She lives in the Seattle area with her husband, and their th

The Saga of House

OUR HOUSE

We bought our current house in the Pacific Northwest in 2016, four years after moving up here from North Texas. Because the seller is a wanted criminal (which we didn’t know until after closing, of course), we started our first week in the house spending close to $20K to replace the main circuit breaker, the sub-breaker in the basement, and about ½ the interior wiring. We knew coming in t

" That should be soon! I think Grey Sun was waiting on Ingram pricing to settle before going worldwide with print. "
Raven Oak and 1 other person liked Caroline Lewis's review of The Ringers:
The Ringers by Raven   Oak
"I enjoyed this short story aimed at a young adult audience with its fairy tale like theme. I could see it being expanded into a regular length novel as I feel it really whet my appetite and I would have liked to see more happen.

Raven Oak and 10 other people liked Lexi's review of The Ringers:
The Ringers by Raven   Oak
"The Ringers is a beautifully written short story. The prose flows elegantly and right off the bat, you find yourself wanting to know more about this town; which feels 1/2 like a sleepy town from the early 1900s and 1/2 like a high fantasy village. Th" 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?
