Recently I stumbled across a new (to me) feature, enabling me to send a personalized digital autograph to my readers on request. It’s called Authorgraph, and if it sounds familiar, two years ago Kathy Rowe wrote an article on Kindlegraph, its predecessor. (If you go to www.kindlegraph.com, you’re redirected to Authorgraph.) But while Kindlegraph was solely for Kindle-users, Authorgraph now can be used by all eBook reading devices.
The one thing I like about this is that it tends to remove an eBook from the cold, impersonal void of cyber space and put a warmer, friendlier twist on it. I think we all enjoy the very personal give and take of buying a physical book from an author and having that personalization and signature on the title page. It separates that book now from all the other books that are otherwise identical to it. It marks it as ours. It commemorates a meeting of minds and hands, a connection, an exchange.

Lauren Rutherford knows she is many things: a failed baker, an orphan, and a computer programmer. She also suspects she is ever-so-slightly nuts given that she often has conversations with her multiple personalities, and Bad Luck is a man who seems to enjoy tormenting her at every opportunity.
What Lauren doesn’t know is that she is also a witch. She needs to learn, and fast, because the only thing between her and certain death is Agnes, her long-dead ancestor who has a foul mouth and a passion for G-strings, and Daniel, a sexy-as-hell male witch who drives her to distraction.
As the last descendant of a long line of witches, Lauren is the victim of a four hundred year old curse. Her life depends on surviving a challenge set down by three damned souls: a challenge that will take her to hell and back. Literally. And Satan doesn’t do tea and scones!
The Last Challenge is available from Amazon.com and Amazon UK. Continue reading “Book Brief: The Last Challenge”
