JASPER — Scott Saalman’s newest book, “Column Writing Is Not Pretty” hits store shelves today.

The book is a collection of some of Saalman’s humor columns that previously appeared in The Herald.

According to the book’s description, most of Saalman’s stories share a common theme: things go wrong.

“I often tell people I hope something goes wrong so I have material for a column,” the description reads. “No one wants to read about the perfect family vacation. They want to read about the disastrous one.”

The book is $10 and is available at Mad Batter and Finishing Touches in Jasper. You can also email Saalman at or message him on his Facebook page.
