Authorgraph is a fun system that allows authors to digitally sign e-books. The recipient doesn’t need to be signed up for any service to receive it either. Since I struggled to find a way to use it for my first book signing event, I figured I would post something helpful that others may be able to use.
First off, avoid the smartphone app. It’s broken. You can access http://www.authorgraph.com straight from the smartphone browser.
Login to Authorgraph and access the navigation window in the top right corner and select Authorgraph Live!
Then you should see a screen with your books.
Select your book. Then you’ll be prompted to where you want to send it to. Fill in the name and email address in the appropriate fields.
If your phone is like mine, it mega-zoomed in when I focused on those fields, so you might need to pinch the screen to get it back to where you can hit the Authorgraph it! button.
Then you choose to sign it!
That will give you a screen letting you customize your message and send your already-on-file signature.
Hit Send Authorgraph and you’re done!
Now it takes a while for it to process, but the recipient eventually gets an email telling them:
Your Authorgraph from Loni Townsend for “Thanmir War (Niniers)” is ready!
Evan Jacobs, Founder
Go ahead and click on the link, and you can see what the recipient receives!
Hopefully you found this helpful. Anyone have any other tips?
