Compostela Tesseracts 20 Reading

Tess20_Reading2Link to Recording of Cat reading a poem.

Reading took place September 18, 2017 at the Cottage Bistro, Vancouver. It was part of a double reading series with Pulp Literature launching their issue 16.  White Dwarf Books attended to sell copies of the books! It was a great night! I thoroughly enjoyed it and it reminded me of the Edmonton poetry scene where I first read my poems.

Many thanks to all who organized and attended!

Whistler writing weekend 

In between dance mom activities and rest, I’ve enjoyed several great meals out plus some writing time. Ah the wilds of Whistler- 3 Starbucks and a Westin patio that’s got its own waterfall! I’m doing just fine here 🙂

Prix Aurora Awards 2017

It’s the time of year when Eligibility Lists form for the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Awards – the Aurora Awards.

This year, I’m happy to report, I’m on  the eligibility list. If you’d like to nominate my story, “The Cup” in Polar Borealis & thus allow me to proceed to the Nominations List, click here:  Aurora Awards site.

This is a really great deal, btw, because for Canadian Aurora voters, you can download a package of the top novels in the field before voting for them. It’s been an incredibly great way to see what’s new in SF&F and have nice pdf versions I can read on my Ipad.

And, you could, ahem, nominate my little story 🙂

To read my story: Just go to http://polarborealis.ca and click on “Current/Back Issues” in the header, then scroll a short distance down to the link.

Thanks!

VCON 41 Countdown…

I’ll be attending VCON41 in Surrey, BC again this year Sept 30 to Oct 2, 2016.  So far I’m scheduled in as:

Friday 

  • Panel on  “Upcoming television SF Television” 19:00 – 19:50

Saturday 

  • Panel “What is it about Dragons and Other Fabulous Beasts?” 22:30-23:20 

Sunday 

  • reading from one of my stories Sunday 10 – 10:25
  • Panel on Building Monsters 12 – 12:50

VCON is always a blast as well as having great resources for writers and other SF/F creators!

This year’s themes are puppetry in SF/F and the small presses. The great thing about general Cons like this is the variety – of things to do, people to meet and so forth! 

GOH is Robert Sawyer.

I’ll be working on a costume for J too, based on the latest Star Wars movie! My non-writer friends can always find panels on science or art.  It’s a great all-around good time.
