With My Kind to be included in Stargazers: Microtales from the Cosmos

Earlier this year, I saw a call for submissions from AE Science Fiction, asking authors to write microfiction with a "stars" theme. I'd never written anything with a cap of 200 words before but really got excited by the challenge. And now, my story, With My Kind, is going to be in the anthology, Stargazers: …

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 …

Noola schooled me in ’Cosm. Xax did in The Stealth Lovers!

I feel my characters in these microcosms are always trying to tell me something about myself. When I was drafting Life in the ’Cosm, I was #DisabledAndAlone, so not in community with other Disabled folks. I was frightened, completely unsure about my future. I had been a runner and worked out regularly. Then fibromyalgia pummeled …

I’ll be a panellist at Can-Con 2017!

My bio is listed on the Can-Con website! (Also note awesome emerging author Dianna Gunn. Her novel, Keeper of the Dawn, is way cool. Go buy it. I'll wait.) Here's the text of my bio, if you cannot read the image: Cait (like ‘cat’) Gordon is an Irish-Canadian princess and the author of Life in the ’Cosm, a space …

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 …
