The Cake is NOT a Lie!

The Cake is NOT a Lie! Seriously.

There will be cake. And you can eat it.

Books by usWhat am I rambling about? Glad you asked. Tomorrow (Saturday), May 16th, I’ll be one of four awesome writers/editors at a mixed writer/reader event. We’ll begin with a look at how not to write a novel, then move into a Q&A. This will be followed up by readings from all of us and a book signing.

The event is organized by Cascade Writers in conjunction with the King County Library System and UW Bookstore, who will be on hand to sell you copies of our books. (You’re also welcome to bring them from home for autographing.)

P.S. A little birdie told me you can pick up a copy of Class-M Exile tomorrow at the event, a month before its release! Lucky you!

WHEN: 5/16 from 12:30 PM – 3:30 PM (The readings begin at 2 PM for those wishing to skip the writer workshop).

About the author

Raven Oak

Bestselling science fiction & fantasy author Raven Oak is best known for Amaskan’s Blood, Class-M Exile, and the collection Joy to the Worlds: Mysterious Speculative Fiction for the Holidays.

She spent most of her K-12 education doodling stories and 500 page monstrosities that are forever locked away in a filing cabinet. When she's not writing, she's getting her game on, enjoying cartography, or staring at the ocean.

She lives in Seattle, WA with her husband, and their three kitties who enjoy lounging across the keyboard when writing deadlines approach.
