Showing up for a book signing by your favorite author is quite a ritual. Having the chance to interact and support those who can actually write good work is always nice. In these events, authors do sign paper books. But what if you own an e-book reader? Does that mean you should not be able to get an autograph?
Autography plans to change all that. It aims to make signing e-books a piece of cake for authors. Autography can be used by writers to personalize e-books without having to show up in person at a signing event:
Authors sign a temporary signature page until the customer has completed the online (or in store) purchase. The retailer’s online store merges the autograph page into the ebook and transmits to the customer’s eReader device… After purchasing and downloading the ebook the author is notified electronically of the customer’s desire for a personal saluation. The customer can request a generic greeting or something specific
Autography can be a great tool for authors to connect with their fans and sell more e-books. Let’s be honest. It won’t replace the good old way of getting autographs. At the same time, it does fill a gap for e-books.
