I live outside Toronto, ON, Canada and would go to a book signing if it were real close, which won't happen :P

excellent as always.

I live in Austin and would probably go to a book signing

I also live in Austin and would go to a book signing if the timing worked out.

Really enjoy the comic, thanks for all the laughs.

I live in Placentia, CA and I would definitely go to a local book signing.

Asking for Mullet Boss's opinion on anything, or even just initiating a conversation with him, is asking for trouble. Cartoon Scott must be bored.

I live on Long Island in New York. Or, as it's correctly pronounced: "Nuu Yauk"

I'd definitely show up to a book signing, especially if said book signing was at one of the conventions I already attend. Show up at Lunacon next year, for example!

I live in Portland and I'd definitely attend a book signing!

March 30, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDan

Mobile, AL. I would definitely come.

I dunno — being the butler would also mean people would assume you to be the culprit every time a murder mystery occurred in and/or around the mansion.

I live on Cape Cod, and would attend a book signing if it was out here, but probably would drive the 90 minutes into Boston.

DC metro area

Yes, especially if it's not in Maryland.

March 30, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterCortJstr

I live in Fort Lauderdale, FL and would definitely go to a signing here or in Miami...the weather is really nice here btw :)

March 30, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterScott M

I live in Concord, CA and would attend a book signing by you anywhere in the San Francisco Bay Area (Sonoma, SF, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Mateo, Santa Clara counties)

March 30, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterRob Stornetta-Pratt

Phoenix, AZ ares, I'd go..

March 30, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterlala

DC metro area.

Yes, especially if it's not in Virginia.

March 30, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMark

Ada, Ohio and yes if it was close enough, but there's not much else here but corn and soybeans, so I don't expect to see you anytime soon.

March 30, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterKate

I live in the middle of rural nowhere in Tennessee, but I might be able to go to a book signing in Chattanooga, or even Atlanta.

March 30, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterFrank

Livin' large here in lovely Olympia, WA, and would definitely attend a signing anywhere between Portland and Bellingham.

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJudas Peckerwood

Hey Scott! I live in Etowah, Tennessee. I would absolutely attend a booksigning by you if it happened to be in the eastern Tennessee area!

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDaniel Armstrong

Sierra Vista, Arizona. And hell, yes! I'd even drive to Tucson.

Interestingly, I recently heard a radio programme (The Bottom Line on BBC Radio 4) which claimed that top butlers for the super rich can earn 200k pounds. So, it might be possible to become rich, at the expense of a normal life.

I live around Hartford, CT, and I'd attend a book signing if it didn't conflict with my schedule and was close by...

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterZach K.

What are the two questions? Location and "would you attend signing"?

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterbrody

I live in Mintlaw, Scotland and would definitely go to a book signing, I would then of course wake up from my wonderful dream about book signings...

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDuncan

I live in Nashville, and I'm not really a social kind of person, but you know what? BI feels like a nice little community and I probably would attend a booksigning. ^^ Barring flaky real life people.

I think my problem with being a butler is that you could only be bossy to the lower servants, and maybe a little snippy to low-class visitors. You still have to be all servile to your employers. I'd chafe sooner or later.

I live in Hibbing, MN. I would love to attend a book signing, though I'd expect it'd more likely be down in the Twin Cities area if you ever come to the frozen north. Assuming I wasn't working, though, it would be worth the drive.

Also, missing an "on" after "Focusing" in panel four. But the insight still convinced me that I would not, in fact, enjoy a career in butling as much as I formerly believed. So much for practicing my British accent.

Cedar Rapids, Iowa, though Iowa City gets the best signings (writers workshop and all) I would attend either.

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterKschobert

Stuff you don't own, making everyone's life run smoothly while yours is chaotic, being under appreciated for what you do... Being a butler sounds like my life now except you are stuck at work all the time. No thanks.

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBry

Enumclaw WA, I would certainly go to a signing! Could I bring all of my BI stuff?

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterShawn S

I live in Greeley Co, about an hour north of Denver and I'd come to a book signing nearby just to get to meet the cool author of all these fine comics and Off to be the Wizard.

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJames Poteet II

Yazoo, MS, and would definitely attend a book signing.

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDtutor

I live in Rochester NY and I'd definitely attend a book signing!

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

Roanoke VA and sure I'd go to a signing.

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTeve Torbes

I live in Bloomington, IN and I would attend a book signing.

And I also didn't expect you to make such a good case on becoming a butler either.

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMarc

Baltimore, MD. Sure, I'd check it out!

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

Probably the nearest place to me that you'd do a signing would be Wausau, WI. You could do a joint signing with Patrick Rothfuss, who also lives in the area. Get some cross-fandom going. I'd most likely attend a signing. OTBTW was quite enjoyable.

I live in NW Iowa and I would go to a book signing - as long as it didn't interfere with hunting and fishing. Obviously...

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMr. Obvious

Dayton, Ohio and I would go to a book signing of yours if you came close.

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJason O.

I live in Baltimore, MD. I would go to a signing if the location and timing worked.

March 31, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterKevin

Hey Meyer, I would definitely go to a book signing if you had one nearby. I live in Rhode Island. Doesn't really matter which town honestly, because they're all nearby. Feel free to swing in to Providence or Boston sometime!
