Readers can collect digital author autographs on Kindle and other devices

Yesterday, I was introduced to a new system that allows authors published on the Kindle platform to connect with readers who would enjoy the digital equivalent of an autograph. I tested out the system and it allows you to fulfill reader autograph requests with a little digital message and signature. The system creates a small file to be stored on Kindles that writes the message in a handwriting script font. Additionally, a person does not have to use a Kindle to use the signature request system. A pdf file of the digital message can be sent to an email address and stored however the person chooses.

The system is called Kindlegraph. It works in conjunction with Twitter and "lets authors send personalized inscriptions and signatures ("kindlegraphs") directly to the electronic reading devices of their fans"

If you've read any of my novels, click the link to request a digital autograph.
