Signed Limited Edition Hardcover Available!

In addition to the paperback and Kindle versions of my new humor collection It’s Funny Until Someone Loses an Eye (Then It’s Really Funny), there is now a signed limited hardcover edition as well! And when I say limited I mean limited — the first (and possibly only) printing is a mere 151 copies, of which only 129 remain available for sale. This edition has a dust jacket and also special end papers with witty extra artwork by cover artist Royce M. Becker at the front and back of the book. The price is $25 (plus $3.99 standard shipping) and they are available now through Amazon. These are sure to go fast, so if you want to give yourself or a loved one a very special gift for Christmas, do not delay!

Alternatively, if you don’t want to go through Amazon, or if you want the book not only signed but personally inscribed to you or someone else, just PayPal me $29 at with instructions for how to sign it for you.


Upcoming Appearances For My New Book!

I will be appearing at the following venues to do readings, signings, or both on behalf of my recently published humor collection, It’s Funny Until Someone Loses an Eye (Then It’s Really Funny).

4/19-4/22: Untitled Town Book and Author Festival, Green Bay, WI. I will definitely be part of this big literary event this year, they just haven’t confirmed in what capacity yet. I pitched them on doing a¬†craft talk called “How to Write for the Onion,” and also volunteered to take part in panels on “Poetry in a Postmodern World,” “Advice from Published Authors,” and “Why We Take What We Take and How to Get Noticed” (about how editors select what they publish). Whatever I do, I will be there selling and signing books too.

5/26: Rolling Out Cafe, 1722 Taraval Street, San Francisco, CA. The monthly group known as Rolling Writers is run by author and Big Jewel contributor Jon Sindell, who hosts regular themed readings, this one all about humor. Jon will also be taking part in this Saturday, May 26 reading, starting at 6 p.m., along with fellow funny man and Big Jewel contributor James Warner, Lita Kurth, Daniel Ari and Clyde Always. With this lineup the evening is guaranteed to be a lot of fun.
