The Latest News
Onward and Upward
In March of 2018, I hired on to run the education department at the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary. In November, I became the Executive Director. It’s a wonderful organization, and I’m pleased to be working there and proud to be leading the Sanctuary forward.
I’m still teaching some game classes and tea classes at the tea shop, but my daughter, Gwen, is handling the day-to-day management. I can’t quite escape from the tech side, though, so in my spare time I’m developing a custom point of sale/inventory management system for the shop.
Successful book signings
Some of the most popular pages on this website have been my blog posts filled with book signing tips. I have collected them together, extended them with new content, and added tips and stories from dozens of other authors. The result is my new book for writers: Gary’s Guide to Successful Book Signings, with almost 200 pages of help in making the your book events the best they can be. Readers can purchase them from their favorite local bookstore or online (it’s available in paperbook and Kindle format), and bookstores can get it through standard distribution channels or direct from the publisher.
Who Pooped in the Park News
The Who Pooped series has hit a huge poop milestone: over half a million copies sold!
The first book trailer for the Who Pooped series is out. It’s for the Yellowstone edition, and you can view it below or watch it on YouTube. Hint: if you subscribe to my channel, you’ll see future trailers when they come out!
Awards and appearances
Who Pooped in the Cascades took two honors that I’m very proud of: it is a High Plains Book Awards finalist in their new Children’s book category and a silver medal winner in the Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards in the nonfiction/animals category.
My closed captioning TED talk from TEDxBozeman is online and ready to watch. For links and background information, see the post, “Video of my TEDx talk, and a few words about the content.”
