How to Autograph Books: Book Signing Tips for New Authors

Recently a new author asked me how she should handle autographing her how to autograph booksbooks. It took me back to when I had published my first book, remembering how awkward it felt to sign copies. I also thought about my first business—a bookstore—where we flipped through used books in search of autographs (the equivalent of a literary jackpot!). Some were short and sweet with just a name, while others had more personal inscriptions.

Here are some simple tips to help you prepare to autograph your books!

1. 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. In some cases, you may want to sign the front cover, though this is rare and would probably only be appropriate for a coffee table book or something that will be on display.

2. Personalize your message.

In most cases people want the book inscribed to them personally, though sometimes it’s intended as a gift so be sure to ask, “Should I sign this to you?” Use their first name and always ask for the spelling since even common names can have unusual spellings.

If you have time, try to personalize your message in some way: “It was great meeting you at the XYZ conference” or “I enjoyed learning about your business…”

3. Choose a signature phrase.

Ideally you should have one to three phrases that you write each time you sign a book so you don’t have to think too hard! Your message can also be memorable and should fit within the space allotted.

When I’m not pressed for time, I sign my books: “Wishing you abundant joy and success.” If a line of people are waiting I simply write “Best wishes.” Here are some others:

All my best

Thanks

In gratitude

To your health

Much appreciation

Warm wishes

Best regards

Onward

Your friend

Etc…

4. Make sure your name is legible.

Consider the fact that someday your book could be a collector’s item! Even if it isn’t, do you want to leave any doubt that you’re the one who signed it? If needed, practice writing your name so that it is at least partially legible. You should also sign first and last name unless your name is Madonna or Cher.

5. Add a date (optional).

Admitedly I usually omit the date—mostly because I can never remember what day it is! But recipients will appreciate it when you date your inscription.

6. Use a good pen.

I’ll never forget the day I was signing books and the only pen I had on me was one of those cheap stick pens I picked up from a hotel room. Though it got the job done, I didn’t feel like it demonstrated how serious I am about my work.

For those of you who autograph the cover or inside cover, a good Sharpie will probably be your best choice. For everyone else, do yourself a favor and invest in a nice pen. It doesn’t matter if the ink is blue or black, if the barrel is thick or thin, just choose something that you love and that makes you feel like an author! (Oh, and make sure the ink dries quickly!)

  1. The information was exactly what I needed to know. I will have a book signing next month. The title is: On Becoming A Healthier Church: Managing “Your Stress.
    Thank you very much!

  2. Diane Ziomek says:

    Thank you for this information. I haven’t autographed any books yet, but was thinking ahead; my thoughts were the inside cover, but I believe the title page would be more appropriate.

  3. The book signing was a success! Thank you again!

  4. Juan Bas says:

    Very helpful. I’m self-publishing my novel, Back Kicks And Broken Promises, through Abbott and may need to sign a few copies. You never know right?

  7. Thanks much for the useful information. I have yet to write a book, one of my essays would just published in This I Believe: Life Lessons. Thus far each copy I have autographed has been done differently–simply because I really had no clear concept of how to do it. The guidance you provided is much appreciated.

  8. Verna Clay says:

    Thanks for the great information! I’ll see you at the Oregon Book Fair.

  9. William Hillman says:

    First book signing coming up on January 28. I never did one, so am not sure how it works. Do they bring there own books? Do I have to have books there for them to buy? Can anyone tell me the procedures. Thanks Bill

    • Hi Bill, More than likely you will need to supply books to be sold. If you’re signing at a bookstore, they will likely take a 40% discount off your retail price and pay you 60%. I’d recommend getting in touch with your host venue to work out the details. Good luck!

  10. Laurie de Paolo says:

    This is great information! I just published a small book of my sock monkey images and poems, “Sock Monkeys Forever”, and will be doing my first book signing November 26th. I’m going to go buy a good pen!
    Thank you for the tips!

  11. Andrew Bell says:

    I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been thinking about this. Thank you so much for the tips!

  12. Lori Lyons says:

    So thankful that I found this. Strange to think that we don’t know how to sign our own names when the time comes. I’m preparing for my first book signing in a few weeks for locals, friends and family in our very small community. Very nervous. I self published, “Adopting in America: The Diary of a Mom in Waiting.” Hope it goes well.

  13. I found your site while searching for “where to sign your book”. I am signing my first sale of a children’s book I wrote entitled Punkin: A Dog Gone Story. I am excited to give a personal note to a budding reader! Thanks!

  14. Thank you, Stephanie, for all the info! I have a reliable pen in hand as well as a backup, ready for my first book signing this afternoon for my just released novel, “The Spirit of Nora”.

  15. As a former bookseller, this post brought back some fond memories of our author readings/signings. One highlight was hosting Steve Allen, who, after a lifetime of autography, had a very consistent autograph. I’ve always wondered if celebrities have one signature they use for public autographs and another for their legal documents and money transactions. [Here's an Identity Theft plot!]

    May I add a suggestion to the list of do’s/don’ts?

    Before autographing unsold copies, check with the bookseller first. Booksellers often overbuy for an event as it is better to return a few copies than not have enough. Some publishers won’t accept returns of signed copies, which would leave the bookstore with an out of balanced inventory. Also, if the booksellers does want signed copies, find out how many, and unless specifically requested, do NOT date your autograph. While a date may be meaningful to the customer, or to the collector of a first edition/printing on its release date, dating the autograph ultimately dates the copy as no longer being “new” if it is still sitting on the shelves a week, month or even year(s) later.

    Thanks for the information, it was timely. I just completed my first of three devotional books, in the series of ‘Experiencing God’s Plan -Together. For parents/friends to stay connected with their university children/friends while they are away from home. I have not had my first book signing as yet, so this was exactly what I needed to know. Thanks and God bless.

  17. Thank you Stephanie for the great tips. I have yet to organize my first book signing. What would you recommend?

  18. Denine Phillips says:

    Thanks, Stephanie! I was delighted that my Google search for “How to autograph a book” came directly to your post. I haven’t had any formal book signings yet, but a woman asked that I autograph her copy of Don’t Give Up on That Dog! I didn’t have a clue, so your tips were very helpful.

    Since this is an individual book buyer, is it okay to include the date? Another thought was to create a paw print stamp so I could also stamp the title page with our dog’s actual paw print. Do you think this is a good idea?

    • Hi Denine, I think the stamp idea is cute and would be fun in addition to your signature. Adding a date is really just a matter of preference so if you want to do that and it’s for an individual, then by all means you should. Good luck to you!

      • Denine Phillips says:

        Hi Stephanie,

        I found my way back to your post, and see that you responded. Thank you! I’m preparing for my first book signing in May, so I needed a refresher :)

  24. Barbara Davis Dexter says:

    Prior to ordering (for myself) a stock of my book, “Around Damascus Township”, the publisher asked if I would be using my books for signings, and I replied “yes”. Now that signings are happening, the publisher insists that I sell the merchants’ supply of books before my own. There was nothing in the contract stating this, and nowhere else was this mentioned. What is protocol, if any? Thanks for your help.

    • Hi Barbara,
      Hmmm. It’s usually up to the merchant, not the publisher, to decide how book sales will be handled. Though the bookstore or hosting venue will likely want to sell their own stock first or purchase books directly from you. The publisher shouldn’t really be involved in that decision unless they are involved in setting up these appearances for you…?
      Best wishe,
      Stephanie

  25. Hi Stephanie!
    So glad to have found your blog. It’s excellent!
    I have just published my first children’s book: Caterpillar’s Dream.
    Wondering how I could offer autograph copies online (besides offering those on our website). Would love to hear back.
    Thank you!
    Roitman Trillo

    • Hi Roitman, I’m not sure I understand your question… If you want to sell autographed copies via your website, you could always autograph book plates (stickers) to be included with purchases. Is that what you’re asking?

      • Sandra Kerns says:

        My books first came out electronically before I also offered paperback. Now that I’m having a signing someone asked how I was going to sign their Nook. (Tongue-in-cheek) I thought about it and came up with this idea. I made postcard sized copies with the cover on one side and the back blurb on the other with a space for addressing to mail, or just sign for locals, or I can sign one of each, scan and send electronically for my overseas readers. Everyone has liked this idea so far. Good luck to all of you book-signing authors.

  26. having my first book signing in august thanks for all your info and the tips. think they are sure helpful

  27. Louise says:

    My first book of poems is being published in Oct. 2012. This is very helpful to read through. I am sending signed copies to endorsers now – any tips for signing for endorsers? Like what to say? Thank yous? thank you, Louise

  28. Kim DeSalvo says:

    I’ve just published my first novel, a contemporary romance titled, “Incidental Happenstance,” on Amazon. As I have buyers around and even out of the country, it has been suggested that I sign book plates to include for those who request them. The size of the book is 6X9. What size would you suggest the book plates be so as to have enough room to write a little message? Should the title be printed on the book plate, and would you suggest any other artwork be included? A border, perhaps?

  29. These book signing tips are very helpful as I am on the verge of having my first signing scheduled soon. But I have a few questions if I may. My book “A Beautiful Husky needs a home” , that was reviewed by Betty White, has been out for a couple months, and I am totally green and somewhat fearful how to approach book stores for signings. My book is designed for children but written for families considering getting a new pet, it is also the official book (major funding contributor) of a pet health charity I have started. For the giveaways, would it be appropriate to bring Charity related items? The charity Runa’s R.A.C.E. Fund (R.R.F.), promotes pet adoption, posts pet health tips and disease warning signs, and has a blog and online store. I am also trying to link up with other charities that are rescues in a cross promotion on the website “Shelter Links” page. I was also thinking of having fliers made with the pet tips and or the shelters R.R.F. has already linked with. Would this be a good move? Or should I just stick to “book” things? I am learning as I go and by the seat of my empty pants pockets. Thanks,
    Cherie AKA Runa’s MOM

    • I think it’s a great idea to work with related charities and find ways to cross promote. Successful book promotion definitely involves thinking outside of the box so keep trying new activities. As for approaching bookstores, there is nothing to fear. Even the big box stores are usually receptive to local authors. Just make sure to walk in and ask for a manager. Good luck to you!

    I have a question. For my Novel “Chris Lynheart” I’ve been designing my own alphabet and language to use for a land that I came up with, and I just finished the first book of my series this morning (minus all the editing and sending off to a publisher, ETC)

    So if I were to sign a book, could I use it in the language I created? Personally, I think that would be very original. But I’m new to writing and this is my first book.

    I have a book signing next month. It took me nearly four decades to get a publisher to go for it and it is such a pleasure to be one of those seeking this advice. I love the helpful hints. Next month is time for my first royalty check and I can’t wait to see if I broke even on the expenses of using manuscript illustrations. [$100 each} and if I get ahead of the author’s advance. The book is certainly being offered in enough locations. .

    Thanks so much for writing this. My first book has just been published and although I’m not doing any official ‘book signings’ at the moment (mostly due to ill health) lots of family and friends are asking for personalised signatures on their copies.

    They were nice enough to buy their own book and then bring it to me, but I was a bit stumped about what was right and what made sense for signing it. Your advice has really helped. I read elsewhere that you should add the date and thought it looked a bit impersonal, so I’m glad it’s a choice thing.

    I think I’ll be taking your advice and doing a nice little personal message and then my name. It’s less stressful. Now I’ve just got to figure out what the personal message is… :D

  46. OMG! Stephanie, this has been absolutely fantastic information. I could never thank YOU enough… Can’t wait until I personally put it to use. I haven’t had a book signing myself yet, unfortunately due to health issues. However, can’t wait until I’m able too.
    My Memoir “With Death Before Us” was released in Dec. 2012. And have worked on a book signing in Maui for next yr. when I’ll be there again. It’s the true grit of what a close family goes through when the father, husband fights for life. It’s filled with Love, positive attitudes, perserverance, spititualty, and the importance of being an educated advocate. Written with the feeling that If the book helps just one other person, it was well worth the blood, sweat and tears through the writing, that took 12 years to complete. Thank you again for the insight, and your sharing of this valuabale information. May God Bless YOU! I wish you the VERY BEST…

    I have just authored and published my first book. I would like to write a personal inscription to the person(s) that had helped me with research or encouragement, but as my handwriting is too big to include all I want to say on the title page, would it be appropriate to write this on a separate sheet and include it loosely in the book and sign only my name on the title page?

  51. Thanks for these tips! I launched my book “Raise Your Game” at the end of last year. When I’m just signing a couple of books, I like to use one of my favourite quotes: “As long as you live, keep learning how to live.” ~ Seneca … but it’s a bit long when there is a queue of people … “best wishes” seemed a bit short – but looks like it fits the bill! Thank you!

  52. Wonderful tips!
    A couple ideas I would add, from my experience:

    Do NOT use a Sharpie permanent marker – they say they’re permanent, but that just means the ink won’t run if it gets wet. With time the ink of a black Sharpie fades to a bad purple/pink color…it may take a couple years, but you want your signature to last a lot longer than that.
    My book is an art book, with semi-gloss pages, so I use American Craft’s Slick Writer – it’s acid free, permanent, waterproof, non-toxic, and quick drying, so I can sign and close the book immediately. It’s great! If your pages are not slick, I think the ink of most pens (besides Sharpies) hold their color with age.

    Also, be careful not to let yourself be distracted while you’re signing. You may be able to multi-task better than my artistic, one-track brain can, but when I’m talking to the person before signing, and then try to continue the conversation as I sign, or they keep talking while I’m signing, I easily make mistakes. I’ve even misspelled my own name once, and numerous times misspelled their names, even after just verifying the correct spelling!

  53. Since I have a new book coming out in September, this is really helpful. Great idea to take a small task and show how important it is to do it right, even if we do it differently from another author.

  54. This was extemely helpful advice! I am a veteran newspaper reporter, but I recently self-published my first book titled “Joy Ride! The Stars and Stories of Philly’s Famous Uptown Theater.” My very first book signing is just over three weeks away, but “Joy Ride!” is doing so well that I’ve been selling copies out of the trunk of my car! I’ve only signed a dozens or so copies thus far, but I was wondering if signing on the title page as I have been was proper, and thanks to your very informative post, I am somewhat relieved! Now I can sign with confidence when my big day rolls around. Thanks Stephanie! And a word to aspiring authors. Don’t be afraid to self-publish. That’s what’s up! After haggling with traditional publishers, I finally took matters into my own hands through self-publishing and social networking, and now my book is ON FIRE!!

  55. Thanks to Authors who post their experiences. Often writers need to mention our downfalls writing – which bestows inspiration to others.
    As a Christian writer I often forget the words written by Apostle Paul:
    “Our lives are like letters, known to read by all men; an epistle of Christ …
    written not with ink by the Spirit of the living God.”
    Therefore, we must welcome the joy of God’s gift of writing to us. Those He has appointed to be great storytellers, of His goodness and grace!

  57. Thank you for this article! I recently published my first book and received my first order. I spent some time last night signing some of them (on the title page, as you recommend).
    I find I need to do is practice my penmanship – I’ve become SO rusty!
    One question: what is your opinion about pre-signing books with a generic phrase and autograph? This way, they are ready to go at a moment’s notice. And would a bookstore appreciate me going to them and autographing their copies of my book on their shelves?

    • I don’t think there is anything wrong with pre-signing books. When it comes to bookstores, you’ll have to take that on a case-by-case basis and ask the store manager. one old trick in the author world was to go in and sign your books on the shelves, with the idea being that the buyer would be excited to find the surprise AND the book wouldn’t be as likely to get returned by the bookstore. But bookstores have changed over the years so I’d recommend introducing yourself to the manager and asking first. They will likely be thrilled and will add a sticker to the front to designate it as an “Autographed Copy”!

  58. Very good info, thank you. My book is due in August, http://www.thehamsterwheel.info I will definitely use your techniques at my book signing.

That in each and every young girl….God sees a winner in them. Thank you Stephanie for your valued information and giving me a chance to share.

  70. E.K. 'Ted' Turner says:

    Thank you Stephanie, your suggestions are timely. My first book ‘Beyond the Farm Gate’
    is in the stores and a launch is less than a week away, we expect 100 or more to attend.
    My fear is, that with a line up to ‘get a signature’ I may feel pressured to sign quickly and
    may even flub the names of people I know quite well. Is it tacky to ask purchasers to write on a note pad exactly how they want their name in a salutation? This will probably be my only such event since I am 87 and have little else to talk about!
    Should I sign E.K. or Ted or E.K Ted ? My publisher is the University of Regina Press. Sincerely, Ted

    • suecanfield says:

      Hi Ted,

      It would be fine to ask purchasers to write how they want their name. Great idea! It’s completely up to you how you want your signature.

  71. Gisela Wicks says:

    Thank you Stephanie Chandler for your wonderful suggestions on how to sign autographs and what to write. I’m so glad I checked out your website, because I just published my one and only book, a memoir, “Born into Hitler’s War” It’s the story of my childhood and teen years. It begins when I was very young, the horror of WWII, then after WWII ended my family and I lived behind the iron curtain in East Germany under the Russian occupation, from where we in 1953 escaped to West Germany.

  72. Many thanks for sharing your helpful hints. I am passing them along to another first time author. Her book The Precipice and mine Celtic Knots were both self published and so there was and is a lot to learn. One word of warning to would be self publishers RESEARCH before choosing to whom you will intrust your precious work. Good luck to everyone brave enough to make this journey.
