The one downside to e-readers is the autograph. Getting a personalized signature often requires having something for the author to actually sign – be it the cover of your e-reader, or an autograph book, or bookmark, for example. Now there’s a way to get an electronic signature that you can store right on your kindle (other readers coming soon).
Kindlegraph is a free service for readers to request an e-signature. What you receive is a PDF that includes the image of the book’s cover and a personalized message and signature from the author. You may have heard about kindlegraph before, but the developer, Evan, recently upgraded the service, making it much easier for authors to create great e-signatures.
Users can have the e-sig sent directly to their kindle (that part’s not free) or you can have it emailed to a different address, whether you have a kindle or not.
If you’d like to give it a try, you can request a kindlegraph of Whirlwind HERE. I’d love to hear from you!
