Hi there,

HAPPY FRIDAY! Oh, wait — you don't remember me, do you?

If not, that's cool. After all, it's been a while since my last update. To refresh your memory, I wrote that post 43 Words You Should Cut From Your Writing, which is likely where you subscribed to my updates. Or maybe you found me because I work at BookBub, and you read my book marketing posts over there.

Still don't remember? That's ok — feel free to unsubscribe using the link at the bottom of this email.

But if you decide to stick around, I've got exciting news! I'm re-launching my blog, and I'll be posting all sorts of writing/publishing tips, book recommendations (especially YA and thrillers), productivity and stress-reduction hacks, and other fun content!

Let's start with something cute and silly: 20 cat GIFs guaranteed to make you smile. I've been meaning to publish this for a while, but each week something terrible happens in the news, and to be honest it seems inappropriate to post something so lighthearted. But after the week we've just had, I think we can all use a bit of a smile. So here it is:

20 Cute Cat GIFs Guaranteed to Make You Smile


I hope you enjoy this post and choose to stick around. I'll be publishing a new post every couple of weeks, so stay tuned for more! Have a wonderful weekend.
