Reviews rolling in!

Reviews are starting to roll in on Dragon Springs & Other Things: A Short Story Collection Book I and wow! All 4/5 or 5/5 stars and the comments the reviewers are leaving… The stories are definitely connecting with people, which is what every writer wants.

Also, I know I tend to write very diverse characters (lots of LGBTQ+ and people of color protagonists) but I don’t think I realized how much until reviewers were pointing it out (in a positive manner). So if that’s your bag, you’ll definitely enjoy these collections. Here’s some of the buzz thus far… (Click the links for full reviews)

[About the story Peace Be with You, Friend:] A sweet and touching story of the end of the world and it’s (sic) last two living inhabitants, a starving dragon and a young girl.  I loved their conversations and interactions down to the very end.”

Raven Oak does a great job in writing this and creating a great collection of multi-genre stories. It worked overall and each story worked with the other. It left me excited to read Vol 2.”

The included short story Cookie Man will be on my mind for a long time.
What a great collection.”

Here are a few thus far for Space Ships & Other Trips: A Short Story Collection Book II!

From Jenn at Book SirensFive colored in stars indicating a 5 out of 5 star rating

Thought-provoking, evocative tales. This is an interesting futuristic blend of short stories…I recommend this collection for readers of science fiction and for readers wanting more LGBTQ+ and minority protagonists.”

This book was definitely a trip. As a former barista, a situation in the story “Mouth” was relatable, a little icky, and you’ll have to read it to find out why. I can’t stop thinking about it!”
