New Invention for Writers!

As readers of this blog know, I'm a great believer in technological innovation. So great is my belief, in fact, that I dabble in inventions for the betterment of mankind.

And now I've found it. The ultimate tool for authors with writer's cramp! Bow down in awe as I introduce:

The self-signing book.

Tired of facing the endless lines of people waiting for your scribbled defacement of a paperback that barely makes you a cent a book? Faced with endless finger pain as fan after misguided fan approach you in the belief that you really are John Grisham, and could you please sign this to Geraldine?

No more. With a unique combination of RFID chips, hidden pockets of ink and just a single digital copy of your personal signature, YOU can have your books sign themselves. And you don't even have to be present at the signing!

George P.P. Morton said: "This is really great. Now that I don't have to be physically present at all those conventions I may actually be able to finish the damn series."

Dane Browne: "This is really great. Now I don't have to meet all those loonies who want me to sign my name in some strange Illuminati pattern."

A spokesman of the publishing house Sherman&Shoestring put it this way: "We've been hunting for just this option for a long time. Not only can we save on transportation and convention fees for our midlist writers. We can also hire actors to pose as John Steinbeck and Mark Twain and make a ton of money off their backlist." He added: "This is really great."

So sign up for your very own self-signing book option in the comments. Limited offer on sale only until April 1st 2013.

Writer's Cramp
Avoid this! Buy the self-signing book now!

Seriously? Going for a self-signing book instead of a self-writing book? Or is that option coming soon to our favorite retailers everywhere? :D

I wanted to do it, but some guy already patented it. Something about a lot of monkeys and typewriters and Shakespeare...

Noooooo! You'll undermine my business plan and my bid for world domination.
But happy April 1st anyway :-)
