Guess What's Now in Bookstores?

So, I wandered through the aisles of my local Deseret Bookstore and found shiny, new copies of The Puzzle Book for LDS Kids on the shelves. I received my copy from my publisher a couple of weeks ago, so I've been anxiously awaiting its arrival by checking in on the bookstore every couple of days.

Finding it in the bookstore, though, I didn't quite know what to do with myself. Should I pick one up and flip through it, alert other shoppers that this is a book for them, or play it cool? Ultimately, I slipped out of the store with a goofy smile on my face. Someday I might get up the nerve to introduce myself to an employee, ask for a pen, and start an impromptu book signing. Chances are, though, any book signing would turn out like the faux Far Side comic strip I drew as part of my family's end-of-the-year Christmas letter.

In the chance event that you stumble upon one of my books in a bookstore: if you see a guy grinning stupidly at you as you flip through the pages; come say hi, would ya?


  1. It must be nice to live near a Deseret Book and be able to stumble upon such treasures!

  2. I love the Gary Larson cartoon on your blog. It would have been nice if you could also sneak a cow into the comic.

  3. Congratulations on being a published cartoonist (again)! Your cartoons continue to make me laugh, and we can never have too much laughter, can we?
