The Essential Book Handselling Kit

The 4 Essential Items:

    •    A signing pen (I prefer the no-bleed-through fine Sharpies.)
    •    Bookmarks to promote your book
    •    “Autographed by the Author” stickers, which you can order at a local printer or online (When visiting bookstores, offer to sign and sticker stock—but never do so without asking first.)
    •    Personal items to make sure your appearance is neat, such as lip balm, a comb and breath mints (Also, always check your fingernails: Customers will be looking at your hands as you sign.)
