We are only hours away from GoodEReader’s first-ever live ebook signing via the world wide web. Urban fantasy author H.P. Mallory will be signing digital copies of her recent release, Great Hexpectations, using Autography’s ebook autographing capability.
Autography, a development that GoodEReader first covered at BookExpo America in May of this year, allows authors to incorporate a personalized page into digital editions of their books. This software also allows authors to incorporate photographs into the ebooks, a feature that is especially popular with fans who attend authors’ live signing events at conferences and book parties.
For this ebook signing, Mallory will be greeting fans via Spreecast, a new social connectivity platform that allows users to have up to four guests on video chat at one time. Spreecast allows users to maintain a channel on the site, thereby recording and storing their previous Spreecasts and assigning those recordings a URL for sharing at other outlets.
The GoodEReader and Autography ebook signing with author HP Mallory will begin at 9:00pm EST/6:00pm PST today. Fans are invited to join this free event, but note that in order to participate online a webcam and the latest edition of Flash must be installed. Readers who do not have those options can still join in the event through the chat feature and their questions will be answered by the author.
The following LINK will direct readers to the Spreecast, although the video feed will not begin until the appointed time.
