Signing Your eBook

If you write eBooks, you may already know about a company that ‘s made it possible for you to sign your eBooks. In case you don’t already know, the name of that company is Autography. Autography works on “every major ebook eReader platform.”

You can even choose to sign something other than a blank page:
Authors are no longer restricted to signing a blank page. Autography's solutions include graphic-rich, customized signature pages that extend the author's brand beyond the book's cover. Authors can also elect to autograph a picture, taken at the event or from a stock menu, and insert that into their ebook.
If this intrigues you, visit their website. You can also watch a video explaining how it works. Note: the video is not easy to hear.

Has anyone tried Autography? What do you think of the idea, either as an author or as a reader?

  1. Hi Helen .. I think this is a great idea - as long as it's not over-egged!

    But what about Christmas presents .. great interaction between blogging authors ..

    I think it could be a very useful tool .. cheers Hilary

  3. I've read about this but haven't looked into it. I'm still grappling with why anyone would want my signature in the first place. :)

  5. That's kind of an awesome idea. I know a lot of people who collect author signatures on their actual Kindles too, which is also a great idea.

  6. Jarmara, will you be getting her autograph?

    I have several shelves of books that are autographed. I don't know if I would try to get an eBook autographed, though. It just hadn't occurred to me to do that. It might be fun, though.

  7. This is a fabulous idea. Signed copies from folks we know is such a nice touch. I would definitely check this out if and when I publish another ebook.

  8. Thanks, Helen! I'm already registered at Kindlegraph, but this looks like it has a much broader application.

  11. It reminds me a bit of Marian Keyes in Cape Town when she said she had some hand problem and could no longer sign books but she can't stamp it for you. I felt- what's the use of that? Not the same as being with the author and getting your books signed.

  12. True, Lauri. Part of the joy of having an autographed book is remembering meeting the author.

  13. I'm not sure this would mean anything to me. I like to have a book that the author has touched. Not sure about bragging rights with an electronic signature.
    I left a comment on a blog one time and apparently "won" a label with the author's signature. If I chose to buy her book I could stick it on the inside cover - I thought that was weird.
