Well, how do you sign an ebook?

- Byron
There's something called which I used once just to see how it worked. I got a one page pdf that has the cover page of an e-book with what is supposed to be K.W. Jeter's signature on it.

Not exactly the same thing but my way of getting e-books signed is handing the author a Sharpie along with my Kindle. Works every time.

After the first author, Cherie Priest at the bottom, signed it I kept smudging the signature no matter how I tried to hold the Kindle when reading so I just got a cover for it to protect the back more than the screen. I don't actually read much from the Kindle itself any more since I got my Android phone so it's pretty much an autograph collector at this point.

The authors who have signed it are:
John Scalzi
Jay Lake
K.W. Jeter
Charles Stross
Robert J. Sawyer
Catherynne M. Valente
Cherie Priest
Rudy Rucker
Cory Doctorow
Mary Robinette Kowall
