One of the unexpected collateral effects of the ebook revolution has been the traditional author ‘book signing session’ has started to be seen as something of an old-fashioned marketing technique. After all, you can’t go round signing the backs of people’s Kindles. Your biro won’t work on them. I’ve tried. You could, at a push, sign using one of those police-issued marker pens which are supposed to help you identify your stolen goods, but then the ink from these pens is invisible to the naked eye, isn’t it? So you need a special reader. And it could all end up getting a bit silly.

There’ve been a number of ‘solutions’ put forward to counter this ‘problem’, however none of them have seemed very effective to me. Until now. Now, we have Kindlegraph. Kindlegraph lets authors send personalized inscriptions and signatures (“kindlegraphs”) directly to the electronic reading devices of their fans. You can watch a video all about it here, if you’re so inclined.

With that in mind, I’ve made available my entire ebook backlist for Kindlegraphication – you can take your pick of books from this AJ Kirby page on the site. The list includes:

– Sharkways, Paint this town Red, The Art of Ventriloquism, The Haunting of Annie Nicol, The Black Book, Bully, and many more.

So if you’re buying someone you love a Kindle for Christmas, why not consider personalising a gifted book for them too?
