Hi Everybody! If you're at all a fan of my sense of humor, you need to check out my new book, Fairy Tales I Just Made Up. It's full of Snarky Bedtime Stories for Weirdo Children, and we're doing a kickstarter to raise the funds to print it.…   You only have until August 5th to kick in a couple dollars, and get your very own copy, so please please please support this awesome project!

That is the person that I am!

So glad you found me! I've got a bunch of free comics here on DA, and I've also written 6 different books, which you should totally buy. More info on my site> [link]

Glad you like my nerdy jokes! I do rock, it's true.

I love your books! I read as many of them as i could when i first saw them :D And then, years later, i see a comic in a discworld group on deviantART, and say, 'hey, i recognize that style!' So yeah. You're awesome. End of story. (Anything that could entertain 7 year old me is awesome :worship:)

Yay! Glad you found me! I keep putting books out, there's probably a bunch you haven't seen yet. When did you become a discworld fan? How old are you now? I also do some official graphic design for Terry Pratchett these days too.

You've been on longer than me then! My parents hadn't heard of it, I had to discover it for myself a couple years ago.
