Authors Currently Selling Their Autographed Books

Aug 27, 2008
Many authors have recently began offering their readers a much more advanced opportunity to get to know their work better as well as themselves. If the web site has been developed properly, then these authors have a much better capacity to sell their books, which can be offered as autographed as well.

These web sites enable avid readers to get in touch with their favorite author by finding out if they will be doing any personal public appearances within the area in which they live. Many authors have realized that these web sites are a way of offering their books much more exposure and can wind up being more lucrative adventure as a result. Authors have began selling autographed copies of their books directly from their web sites, which give the avid reader, fans, and collectors the opportunity they may never have to purchase one of these books for their collection, private library, or as a gift for some one else.

Normally, these personalized author web sites will give a brief description of the life of the author. One in particular that I located was brief and to the point basically stated that the author originally lived in the coastal range area of Oregon where he began his life as a homesteader, but after five years moved to New York. Life in the big city was much harder than it was believed it would be and as a result he worked at several jobs just to make ends meet before he returned to Oregon within a year, where he married his longtime sweetheart. Now they live comfortably in a small stone cottage that is surrounded by squirrels, birds, and other small critters. This brief introduction to the life of the author lets individuals feel they are more on a personal basis with these authors and as a result they are more likely to continue purchasing their books within the future.

These web sites also allow the authors to present interviews that they have had in the past as another way for readers to become more familiar with them and their work. These interviews may have been with such famous celebrities as Chis O'Donnell or Ellen DeGeneres. At the same time these interviews might possibly be from area television news channels such as FOX, PBS, or ABC. There may also be an opportunity for the individual to read a certain amount of articles that have been compiled about them, which may include from such famous magazines as Southern Lady, Women's Day Magazine, or Southern Journal.

Throughout the years authors have used what ever techniques have been necessary for them to sell their books, which have include such unusual techniques as loading up their vehicles and traveling from area shopping centers. There are several authors that do not feel comfortable at all with these types of arm chair tactics, but if an author wants to become successful then they will do what ever it takes to become successful. These types of public appearances give readers and fans the opportunity to meet and possibly get the chance for the author to sign a copy of their book for them.
