Welcome to Catsignal. I’m Bryon Cannon, your genial host.
For the curious: I have a master’s degree in communication from a fully accredited Midwestern university. I spent 15 years editing daily newspapers (winning both awards and downsizing for my efforts), and am now a freelance editor. I also have a book of quotations available, The Purple of Emperors. This blog I do for fun — mine, certainly, and yours too, I hope. I’m also a charter member of the Northeast Kansas Writers Exchange.
You may comment in the comments or, if you absolutely must and promise not to try to sell me something, you may e-mail me at readcat (at symbol) catsignal.com.
WHY CATSIGNAL? This site began its life as something very different, and the name made much better sense then. But that project didn’t work out and I blasted it all into oblivion. Rather than let the domain name go to waste, I decided to use it for my writing blog.

(And a note to would-be plagiarists: I have three friends who are high-powered attorneys and make a lot more money than I do. They’d all be happy to sue you for me to get in a little pro bono work. I’ll let them draw straws.)
