You had meat hello

Hi pals. C’est moi. *Smiles with all teeth*

My newest book is available for pre-order. It’s called Permanent Record and is published by Simon & Schuster.

Out 9/3!

Good god please pre-order it.

And read an excerpt on Entertainment Weekly.

If you haven’t read my *New York Times Bestselling debut*, Emergency Contact yet, it’s available in paperback which you can order here.

Read an excerpt of THAT on

Find me @choitotheworld on Twitter or IG.

Here are my tour dates for 2019! xo




Permanent Record. Book two. Out September 3, 2019. In the same way that Emergency Contact is about love and texting, Permanent Record is about love and social media. And fame. And student loan debt. And clout. And how waiting for the perfect moment to start living your life is a recipe for anxiety storms. Please pre-order it now. My entire self-esteem hangs in the balance. Man, it’s wild how hard this book was to write. I hope you enjoy it. Oh, also, read an excerpt on Entertainment Weekly. xo

Meow. Emergency Contact. March 27, 2018 on Simon & Schuster. Smash that order from your favorite pulp purveyors. There's also an excerpt Entertainment Weekly

Hey, Cool Pod!

Hi! As with everyone on the planet with thumbs I have a podcast. Well, two. Essentially, I have as many podcasts as I do thumbs. Hooray.

Hey, Cool Job! is about jobs. We’ve had a ton of illustrious guests. Like, New York Times’s Jenna Wortham, Mero from the number one late-night show in history Desus & Mero, porn legend Asa Akira, comedian Joel Kim Booster. You get the idea. A lot of melanin and a lot of good times. Subscribe here

Plus, there’s my micropod, Hey, Cool Life! Which lives here. It’s more stream-of-consciousness and updated daily-ish, covering the intersection of mental health and creativity. Basically how to cope when your ambition tries to eat you alive while you’re making art and existing. This thread covers all the articles I mention throughout.

So yeah. Subscribe and if you like it. Please leave a review on iTunes. Also, don’t let me tell you what to do. Live your life. xo
