Barnes and Noble will be employing the Autography software we wrote about a few weeks ago, to allow authors to digitally sign ebooks!
Autography is a software based touchscreen solution that allows authors to autograph ebooks. It is a positive step in the right direction allowing eBooks to bear the once in a lifetime signing that makes tangible books so attractive. Often the signed hardcover is placed in a special place on the mantel, and now ebooks enjoy the same privilege.
Barnes and Noble will be offering select signings at their various book store locations to get authors to sign digital copies, as well as print. The first author to usher in this new policy is Sandra Boynton. “The Going to Bed Book” is scheduled for Barnes & Noble’s Upper East Side store in New York City (7 p.m. on Monday, May 2).
