    Silly question about bookplates

    My editor just emailed me and said they were mailing me 60 bookplates to sign and return.

    Should I do anything other than just sign my name? You know, like something cheesy. "Thanks for reading, huh-huh-huh." I hate doing that stuff. My penmanship is horrendous, and I feel like a tool anytime I put pen to paper.

    However, I'm afraid he's going to take one look at my signature and not know which way to place it in the book. (Yes, it really is that bad. Worse than you think.)

    What would you do?

    you could put a short quote, a doodle, or something along those lines on the bookplates.
    "You and I are both fetishes--just ask your partner."

    And we already know that I can't spell. Stop your snickering now.

    Not a silly question.
    I'm not sure stamping would be the way to go, as the point is to have an original signature.
    I agree with giving it a bit of practice, and I think the extra note is a great idea, as it shows a bit of that 'extra' for the reader, instead of just "look, it's me, and I signed it."

    You could come up with a happy face, or a short Thank-you, or Welcome, or Enjoy - one word that is barely discernable would work.
    There are only so many hours in a day... I spend none of them on housework.

    Thanks people! I had forgotten where I posted this thread.

    I just got the bookplates in the mail, and it turns out there's no room for me to do anything but sign on the line. They're preprinted and numbered, so I worried for nothing.
