A Virtual Book Signing with the Author's Place is the best way for you to sell your books, just as you would via any conventional book signing--except that the author never has to leave home and the bookseller doesn't need to take elaborate steps to accommodate a physical signing. For each book a bookseller sells during a Virtual Book Signing, the seller will
E-mail us his customer's name, mailing address, and the desired inscription. Within minutes, we'll
E-mail a temporary inscription back to the store, similar to this...
The seller will then
Print out the temporary inscription and give it to his customer. (Authors will either have faxed us their signatures or sent them as an image file in advance of their Virtual Book Signing dates.) Author will follow up by sending a permanent personally signed handwritten inscription to the customer's mailing address for permanent attachment to the book within one week.
All a bookseller needs at the point of purchase in order to participate in a Virtual Book Signing is a computer, an active e-mail account, and a printer. We even furnish the bookseller with all promotional materials (posters, flyers, bookmarks, etc.).
Now, for the first time in publishing history, authors and booksellers everywhere can arrange for a Virtual Book Signing at the same time and on the same date...for one store or for a hundred! Or even set them up weekly for optimum exposure and maximum sales!
The results: No more expensive, time-consuming book-signing
tours in order to help bookstores sell more books. No more
long lines and longer waits for customers to get what they came for.
Best of all, what used to take hours now takes only minutes. And that
translates into more sales, more good will...and more
money in the bank for everybody!
