My review: To Pluck a Crow, The Hands Behind Shakespeare’s Pen is so pluckin’ intriguing!

I'm a massive Shakespeare nerd, or at least I used to be as a teenager, always with my trusty tome of his complete works close by. (I still have it, too!) Over the years, I had heard rumours questioning the authorship of those works, so I was really intrigued to read about Sue Taylor-Davidson's take …

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. …

My review: In the Shadow of the Spire is a much-needed Star Wars story

I've said it before and I'll say it again: author February Grace is probably one of the kindest people ever to be found on Twitter. She's really a delight, so consider following her! Aside from being a lovely human, she's also a brilliant writer with over 30K followers on Wattpad alone. This month, I found …

Life in My Microcosm: Cait G’s Top Ten Books of 2017!

Several of my author peeps post about their favourite books of the year and I think it’s a great idea. We’re not only writers, we’re also readers! This year I dove into books from authors I’ve met or had contact with on social media (except maybe Mary Shelley, but we so would have been tweeps). …

My Top-Ten Favourite Reader Comments on Life in the ´Cosm

I know an author has to maintain some distance from reader reviews. I am also fully aware that not everyone will like Life in the ´Cosm, and people are completely entitled to their opinions. There are books I've not enjoyed either. It happens. But these particular excerpts made me smile. (Btw, if you did like …

Soul’s Blood: A Space Opera with a Triad of Awesomeness

I only met Stephen Graham King online, when he asked to write for the Spoonie Authors Network. It took about five minutes for me to like him, and I'm probably exaggerating by four minutes. I'd heard author ’Nathan Bourgoine rave about Stephen's space operas, so I decided to read Soul's Blood, the first of his Maverick Heart Cycle …

Reader feedback on Life in the ‘Cosm: Oct 6, 2016

This book is delightful. The characters are relatable in their humor (and struggles), and the world-building is done in a subtle way that isn't glaringly jarring or overly pointed... you just get swept up and carried along. And the visuals are great. Definitely worth a read for fans of almost any genre. You won't be …
