I saw Moira Rogers tweet about Kindlegraphs tonight, and I Googled them. It’s a given if she/they tweeted it, it’s cool. I just didn’t know how cool until I pulled up the Kindlegraph website.
How you do it:
For the author–Click “authors sign up” at the bottom of the page. Then enter your books’s Amazon ASIN #
For the reader–Click on the “request Kindlegraph” button. Then register your Kindle and sit back and wait.
What it does:
For the author–It allows you to connect with readers. You’re emailed a notification whenever someone requests your autograph.
For the reader–It allows you to connect with authors by getting a personalized message from your favorite authors.
For more information, check out their website.

Thanks for the link! That’s really cool!
It is cool, and easy! For both the author and the reader. I like that. 😉
I signed up with Kindlegraph. My only question is how to we get the readers to know about it.
I think, until the service catches on, the best thing to do is make a link on your blog/website to your Kindlegraph author page. Otherwise, promote the service like you would a new release. I posted on my Facebook fan page and that worked well. I’ve seen several authors promoting their pages via Twitter. But until these services become more mainstream, and readers learn about them, a link (and blog post explaining the process) is about the best we can do.
