Hey, lovely readers!
I’ll be in Montreal on August 19, 2017 at the Queer Between the Covers event at Pride because it sounds like super fun and let’s face it, my book is also queer between its covers!
WHERE? 1700 Rue Amherst, Montréal, QC H2L 3L5, Canada
WHAT TIME? 11pm to 5 pm.
You’ll find me at the Renaissance table selling Life in the ’Cosm and other cool books. Bring your book and I’ll sign it! Or, buy a book or get your friend to buy a book or ASK EVERYONE TO BUY MY BOOK! And I’ll sign them. The books. Not your friends.
Warning: I’m frighteningly friendly, but I promise not to spontaneously hug you. Or sniff you. (Shut up, Amy. In my defence, she smelled like freshly-washed laundry. She’s never let me live that one down.)

Look, Ma, I’m a magical sweary elf who reads space opera!
I’ll be cosplaying as Hannah from Rat Queens on Saturday April 1, and will be at the Renaissance table selling and signing books!
On Sunday I’ll be cosplaying as a Vulcan and sitting at the Ladies Who Trek table. Why not buy Life in the ‘Cosm at the Renaissance table and bring it to me to sign? Or you can bring a copy you’ve already bought and I’ll gladly sign it.
Hope to see you there!
Wanna meet me and see how frighteningly friendly I am? Well, here’s where you can find me:
Creative Ottawa Nerds holiday craft fair
(Saturday November 26, 10am-5pm)
9 Rossland Ave. at the Anglican church, Nepean (Ottawa)
I’ll be at the Cait Cards table, selling my wares, but my book will be sold at the Renaissance Press table. If you buy a copy of Life in the ‘Cosm from them, I’ll happily sign it for you! Stop by and say hi!
I look forward to seeing you!
(Btw, ‘Cosm makes a great Christmas gift. Just sayin’.)
Monster Launch with authors and creators!
Saturday October 29th, 5-7pm
3 Brewers, 240 Sparks St., Ottawa
This is gonna be so crazy fun, peeps! I’ll be one of eight people launching like a rocket at this multi-author launch. I’m very excited to do a reading from Life in the ‘Cosm and I’ll be more than happy to sign books, too!
There will be door prizes, readings, and games. You can even dress in costume if you like, because it’s Halloweenish time! (You don’t hafta dress up, but I so am.)
If you’re in Ottawa/Gatineau or just visiting the nation’s capital, you must come on by. What was it they said on The Simpsons? Oh yeah, something like, “If you can’t make it, you better be dead or in jail. And if you’re in jail, break out…” 😀 (It’s a quote, okay? I don’t want nobodies to die or break out of jail.)
See you then! Squee!
Cait Gordon is the author of Life in the ’Cosm, published by Renaissance Press. Available now!
