About Raven Corinn Carluk

Talking about myself is much harder than writing a book. You'd think a wordmistress wouldn't have such a problem, but I do. Let me rework a flat scene any day.

Simple background: I'm married, have lots of pets, still work full time, and grew up in Las Vegas.

But there's so much more to a person than that.

Writing is more than just words on paper to me. It's a passion, an incessant need, a deep-seated drive to be a storyteller. I knew I wanted to be an author as far back as high school. Writing may have taken a backseat a few times, but I finally made it.

My stories have bite because I'm a little different, and like slightly different things. No shock horror here, or cheap gimmicks meant to offend, or pandering to the latest trend. My vampires love human blood, my dragons hunt people, and my elves are magical and arrogant.

Romance and darkness will always go together for me. Love really can get you through anything, as I know from personal experience. My characters will always have that glimmer of new love, that bond with a soulmate, and will do anything to be with their one and only.

When I'm not busy having things killed. Being deeply romantic doesn't mean I'm not also a violent or twisted writer. Fight scenes, bloodshed, dark magic, and triumphant villains all have their places in my tales.

I'll never apologize for who I am. Sometimes abrasive and uncouth, full of contradictions and juxtaposition, I am merely who I am.

And what I am is a storyteller wanting to craft new entertainments for you.

Reviews of Deadlands by Raven Corinn Carluk

Christina O'Connell reviewed on Dec. 31, 2018

I am so glad I picked this book up during the sale. Once I started reading, I could not stop. I never thought death could sound so sexy, but somehow she pulled it off.

There's great adventure, and an amazing world, and a tight little love story. Fighting and heated almost-sex and a redemption arc.

Very fast read, very enjoyable, and Yllektra is right: this needs a sequel.

Wow, wow, wow!!
There are no words to express how much I loved this!!!
I totally adored the world the author created and the wonderful descriptions and the post-apocalyptic, dystopian world reminded me so much of Lilith Saintcrow's The Dante Valentine Series(which is one of my favorites)and her writing in general.

I fell in love with Vanya and Alexander and all characters were very distinct and lovable in their imperfection.
It was explained from the beginning that Vanya and Alexander needed each other. They complemented each other and they were a match for each other even in terms of power.
I found the description of Vanya's feelings towards him and when they finally "touched" each other compelling.

I was mesmerized by the whole story of the Gene Wars and how the world/society had descended into chaos and imbalance.
It was really easy to understand what was going on, how the world was separated and what kind of creatures there were now and that was a major feat for the author to do so in such a short story.

The plot was easy to follow, the feelings and motivations of the characters were clearly defined and the ending was very good...Although I'd love a sequel! XD

In one word: Awesome if you love Necromancer stories.
Like Vanya says in the book:
"Every Breath brought me Alexander's scent; sharp, slightly dusty, like the inside of a temple.
Oh, how I wanted to worship"

I worship! XD
