New signings will be announced here.
I just got back from some signings on the Colorado River. On
Friday we signed in Lake Havasu as a result of a magazine
article about me and Wet Desert in Colorado River Life magazine.

Oct 11, 6:30pm (Reading & Signing)
Sam Weller's Bookstore, 254 S. Main, Salt Lake City, UT
Sam Weller's sponsored an author event in downtown Salt Lake
City last night. There were three authors invited, all from
small publishers. Before the signings, they invited each of us
to introduce our book and read. They even had a podium setup. It
was my first reading and I was a little nervous. But, it went
very well and we sold some books for Sam Weller. The authors
are: Myself, Linda Dunning & Lannie Scopes.
Sep 15, 2 - 4pm
Little Professor Book Ctr, 15 N. Main, St. George, UT
Report: St. George is selling a ton of books. Here is a
picture of the signing we did at Little Professor. The guy on
the left is Mark Grant, a good friend that I grew up with.
22, 2 - 4 p.m.
BYU Bookstore, Provo, UT
Report: BYU invited me to do a signing during education
week. The bookstore was incredibly busy which made for a fun
signing. I was signing right next to Bob Lonsberry, the morning talk-show
host on 570 AM.
Aug 15 4 p.m.
LDS Booksellers Conference, Sandy, UT
11 a.m. - 1 p.m. Lee's Marketplace, Smithfield, UT
2 - 4 p.m. Book Table, Logan, UT
Report: These two June 9th singings were a ton of fun.
They were both held in Cache Valley the day after the great
review in the Herald Journal (see reviews). Almost everyone came
in the store specifically for Wet Desert. Many had already perused my
web site and a few had already read the first chapter online.
One was a retired employee of the Bureau of Reclamation. Some
were interested because they loved the Colorado River. Many
mentioned ties with The Monkey Wrench Gang. Two professors from
USU showed up, including one who said he wanted to see for
himself if anyone from Trenton could really write a book.
Overall, the attendees were very serious readers, who all seemed
excited to get their hands on Wet Desert. I hope a few of them
send me an email after they read it.
Town Hall, Trenton, Utah. 3 - 5 p.m.
Desert's first book signing took place on Saturday, May 12th in
the Town Hall in Trenton, Utah (pop. 450). Gary' grew up in
Trenton on a dairy farm. Most of the fiction readers came out to get a signed copy from Gary. It was a great chance to
talk about how Wet Desert was written. By the end, Gary's hand was tired
from signing books.
