Flash Fiction Challenge: May Results

It warms my heart that my trusty band of author humans continue to write their super-creative stories. Thanks, author humans!

Flash Fiction Challenge 2020: May

It might seem odd that I am continuing this fun and non-competitive flash fiction game during a global pandemic, but I strongly feel that taking time out to be creative is really good for my mental health. But if you're not up to it this month, that's absolutely okay, too. I just wanted to do …

Flash Fiction Challenge: April Results

So much changed since our last challenge. Most of us are staying at home because of the COVID-19 pandemic. I thought I'd try "lighting the lighthouse" last week and to my delight, people still wrote flash fiction this month! Last week, I drew pretty decent cards: 2 of spades, Jack of hearts, and the 8 …

Cait Gordon Reads From Home, featuring The Stealth Lovers (book cover is shown)

Cait Reads from Home: The Stealth Lovers

I'm watching fellow authors reading excerpts of their works, and it's lovely. I decided to do this myself because if we artists can distract you for a few minutes, then that's a good thing! Today, I read from The Stealth Lovers, Chapter 13: The Trials. Xax and Viv are about to start testing to see …
