gpg error on upload deb package to ppa

Hello! I have generated a deb package with the python module stdeb and now I am looking to upload it to the Ubuntu PPA. I have a directory listing of:

python-myproject_0.0.1-1_all.deb  myproject_0.0.1-1.dsc
myproject-0.0.1                   myproject_0.0.1-1_i386.changes
myproject_0.0.1-1.diff.gz         myproject_0.0.1.orig.tar.gz
When I run dput ppa:my/ppa myproject_0.0.1-1_i386.changes, I get the following error:

Checking Signature on .changes
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: the signature could not be verified.
Please remember that the signature file (.sig or .asc)
should be the first file given on the command line.
No signature on /home/me/myproject/deb_dist/myproject_0.0.1-1_i386.changes.
I am not very knowledgeable about packaging, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Cool Use the dsc

The error says input the signature file(.sig or asc). since you have a .dsc you can input it as the signature file. I think this should work (assuming that dsc stands for digital signature certificate)
