Options for Autographed Copies

While signing requests are allowed and encouraged in person, providing signed copies by mail is not very practical. For that reason, autographed bookplates are now available. Bookplates can be mailed in an envelope to the purchaser, then anchored to the inside of the book with the peel-off adhesive.

Two options exist for folks who want physical signatures; you can buy the bookplate and provide name/address information through PayPal, or you can mail your fee to the author's PO Box. You can choose one of those options and find the rates here at the autograph page.

For eBooks, there is Authorgraph. Request a signature for your electronic copy of the book, and the author will provide a personal message and unique inscription. Authorgraph instructs you on how to receive the document electronically once you request it.

International Asexuality Conference: Toronto

Words from Julie:
The International Asexuality Conference, held in Toronto in June 2014, was a fantastic success. I did a giveaway for several Advance Reading Copies of my book, talked with hundreds of other asexual people, and participated on two panels: The Asexual Leadership Q&A panel and the Asexual Visibility and Content Creation panel. (Those links go to videos of the entire presentations.) I was also invited to briefly talk about asexuality on CTV, a national Canadian news station. As usual, meeting everyone was the highlight!
