Basic How-To Sign and Number Your Books

All of you will have the amazing opportunity to sign books (write your autograph inside the book). This seems like it should be a “no-brainer,” but there are often some questions that crop up about the proper way to sign a book (for value).

This article from Authority Publishing gives some good suggestions about the “proper method to autograph a book.”

Most important of all — NEVER use the same signature signing your books that you would use to sign a check. Fraud happens with a photograph and digital programs.

For those of you who are providing signed/numbered (limited edition) books, here are some images of what that should look like. Remember the following very important rules:

  • More than 100 or 200 numbered books will change the value (the less numbered books, the more valuable they are).  Recommend number: 100.
  • The lower the number on the book, the more valuable (save those numbers for loved ones).
  • Keep a very accurate record of the numbers you have given out so that repetitions don’t happen.

Have a great time at your book signings and know that these books have great value to those who support you through their purchases.  Enjoy this rare opportunity — to autograph your book as a published author for someone who appreciates your work.
