Two Reviews in One Week? YAY!

Pinch me! Actually, don't. Keep two metres away, please. But still, you can metaphorically pinch me because in the middle of *gestures at pandemic*, I was so surprised to receive notifications of two new reviews of Nothing Without Us! The first one is "Centering Differences," written by Cherie Pyne for the Montreal Review of Books. …

Book covers for The Stealth Lovers and Nothing Without Us

Update: Here’s where you can buy The Stealth Lovers and Nothing Without Us!

Last night (October 5) at the multi-author book launch hosted by Presses Renaissance Press, I read from The Stealth Lovers and also got my copy of Nothing Without Us. It never stops being magical—holding the paperbacks of my work for the first time. *happy sigh* I thought I'd provide an update where you can buy …

Holy stars, I did a thing!

As co-editor of the Nothing Without Us anthology, this last few weeks felt as if I were handed the baton in the second-to-final lap of a relay race while I cried, "Oh crap, I need to deliver this to the last runner!" The "last runner" being the final production team at Presses Renaissance Press. However, …

I feel like the “It’s” guy from Monty python…

You know what I mean, right? That poor soul who pants and gasps and crawls his way through the terrain just to look at the camera a say, "It's..." before he collapses? ID: Cait crawling on the ground, being the Monty Python "It's" guy. (Drama much?) Gracious, I'm so busy, my busy is busy! This …

I think editing an anthology is like being pregnant.

Okay, so never mind the fact that I've never birthed a child of my own. I still believe—and have had confirmation from a human who has given birth twice—that editing anthologies is like being preggers. At the beginning, it's this wonderful announcement, and you feel like puking a little (from hoping people will respond to …

I’m still alive, honest!

Hey, folks! I haven't blogged in a few weeks because (1) I have this stalker-cough. Yes, it's stalking me. I'm considering getting a restraining order on this virus. (2) I am up to my eyeballs in editing work! I've been helping the husband unit with his first book, Dissatisfied Me, A Love Story, by giving it a pre-beta reader edit. …

Anthology Kickstarter: We Shall Be Monsters (Or, as I call it: The Frankenthology)

So I'm pretty stoked. Last December I submitted a short story called The Hilltop Gathering to the We Shall Be Monsters anthology call-for-submissions. What really appealed to me about this project was how authors were invited to write stories that explored disability. As a disabled person, this simply delighted me. For the first time since I …
