Back in the day, I used to sell autographed copies of my books from my website, by way of a simple pricelist page that could be printed and mailed to me. I didn’t sell a lot, but it helped me connect with some readers. Then the web got more complicated, and sales tax got more complicated, and I gave up on that model. Now, I’m selling autographed books through Etsy! Yes, that place you go to (statistically more likely if you are female) to buy crafts and things. It turns out you can sell books there, too, and a number of authors and booksellers do just that. Now I am, too.
Here’s what I’ve got in my StarRiggerBooks store so far:
- The Chaos Chronicles, complete set to date, in matching Starstream trade paperback editions.
- The Chaos Chronicles, Books 1-4 in the original Tor first edition hardcovers.
- The Reefs of Time / Crucible of Time in matched Starstream hardcovers.
- Eternity’s End, in handsome new Starstream trade paperback edition.
- The Infinity Link, in the original Bluejay first edition hardcover.
- Dragon Rigger, in the original Tor first edition hardcover.
- Battlestar Galactica: the Miniseries novelization, in Tor hardcover.
All autographed and personalized as requested. Great gift ideas, right? Come and be my customer! Or share it with a book-loving friend!
*You didn’t think I could build an Etsy store without the help of coffee, did you?
