Mobileread is hosting an eBook Signing Event!
Science fiction author M. David Blake is giving away a special edition of his first published short story
, each and every copy of which will be numbered and individually hand-signed. You won't get to rub literal elbows at this event (and he'll probably still be in his pajamas drinking coffee as he signs, scans and assembles your *.epub and .mobi ebooks), but you can still ask questions, offer feedback, and chat with a real, live author... and this time, you don't have to stand in line.
The idea for SIGNATURE EDITION eBooks was developed in the MobileRead forums, when a few members began discussing the concept of “signing” eBooks. Some allowed authors to sign the backs of their electronic devices, while others obtained signatures on the protective covers for those devices... and at least one member confessed asking an author to sign a blank canvas in her eBook reader’s Paint program.
After a few such confessionals, a member chimed in to say, “I think the developers of ebook software for ereaders with a touch screen should put the functionality in their ereaders to add a signature to an ebook.”
His suggestion started the cognitive wheels turning and the eBook Signing Event was born!
