The Fascinating World of Book Inscriptions – Part I

You are an author sitting at a table in a local bookstore signing books for people who have enjoyed your presentation and want the book they just purchased personalized by YOU. Life is good! The line in front of your table is not intimidatingly long, which gives you time to personalize each book you sign with a brief message to the individual who is buying the book. You have just chosen to do something called ‘inscribe’ the book. “OK, so what,”  you say. I don’t care what it’s called. What difference does it make whether I simply sign my name—including today’s date, maybe not—or whether I choose to take the time and energy to ‘inscribe’ it?” Well, when we were recently asked a similar question by an author and did some research on the subject, we found that there is a fascinating part of the […]

So what does TGIB stand for? Answer:  Thank God for Independent Bookstores! Most independent bookstores are willing to put self-published books on their shelves, and we’re glad they are! Many of these stores are especially willing to highlight local authors (self-published or otherwise), including placing their books in a prominent space in the store and also offering booksignings for worthy books.
