Iris and the Crew is available for pre-order at some locations!

Bodymind celebration? An accessible ship? And PEW-PEW-PEW?

You betcha!

(There might also be scenes of dessert-eating! After all, this is a Cait Gordon space opera…)

But much excite! The paperback of Season One: Iris and the Crew Tear Through Space! is now available to pre-order at certain locations:

If you’re in Canada, you can visit the 49th Shelf website and click the Shop Local button to discover which indie shops carry it near you. Wherever you are on this rotating orb, maybe you ask if your local indie bookstore can order it for you! (And thanks to all who support the works of disabled creatives.)

When the ebook is released, I will update you all for sure! I have been told there will be an audiobook as well, but that will be released perhaps in 2024. I will keep you posted on all updates!

Cover of the book with a quote from Amanda Leduc that reads: "Readers, get ready—for the gleekin’ ride of your life! Iris and the Crew Tear Through Space is an exuberant romp that ditches all the stale clichés of sci-fi in favour of what’s fresh, exciting, and truly possible. Here is a tale that shows when it comes to accessibility, not even the sky is the limit. Buckle up and enjoy!” 

There is also an acknowledgement of the support we received from the Canada Council of the Arts.

This is the fifth book with my name on it, and the squeefulness is still there. Maybe even more so because writing a disability hope-punk space opera in the middle of a global pandemic was really something. I can never say that enough. I’m so thrilled to Renaissance for once again believing in my work.

Yay! All the yay!
