Michael Lieberman’s Book Patrol reports that Gawker media reports that an unnamed publisher is hiring forgers to “ghost sign” copies of books for authors who are too fucking lazy to do it themselves.

from Gawker: “It’s not clear on behalf of which authors the ad was posted. The phone number reverses to an ad agency called Nax Partners run by this woman who just appeared on CNBC and advised everyone to adjust their attitudes upward. And their ethics downward, apparently.”

Ed Pilkington in The Guardian: US: Wanted: people to sign books for lazy authors.

You know, unless I am sitting in front of an author with their birth certificate stapled to their forehead, WHILE he signs a book in blood, I am not really ever certain the ink is worth wasting the money for.
