How to Autograph Books: Book Signing Tips for New Authors

  • Decide where to sign. I like to sign my books on the title page, which is where most books are autographed, though you can also sign the inside cover.
  • Personalize your message.
  • Choose a signature phrase.
  • Make sure your name is legible.
  • Add a date (optional).
  • Use a good pen.

Where do you sign a book?

By far the most common place to sign a book is on the title page. Occasionally the half-title is signed, and some authors do sign on the front free endpaper (that’s the blank page opposite the inside front cover).

What is it called when an author signs a book?

Book signing is the affixing of a signature to the title page or flyleaf of a book by its author. Book signings are events, usually at a bookstore or library, where an author sits and signs books for a period.

Can you bring your own book to a book signing?

The usual rule of thumb is that you CAN bring books from your own collection to have signed, but the bookstore would like you to purchase the newest book from them. Usually there is some form or slip they give you indicating that the book(s) you hold are previously purchased.
