About this novel

Last year, I wrote a short story called, The Third Raven. When I was about halfway through the story, I realized I had an entire world in my head, and that I could easily write a longer piece set there.

This year, I attended a workshop where one of the assignments was to write a short story about a first date, set in modern day. I couldn’t figure out what to write for the longest time, and finally chose to tell a story about a modern day raven warrior trying to get a date. Almost all of the first chapter of this novel was written as that short story, with a scene at the end that wrapped everything up.

The other workshop participants kindly informed me that it wasn’t actually a short story.

So I went ahead and wrote this novel. I hope you enjoy it. As well as the two sequels.
