Book plates

Being an Australian author, it’s horribly impractical and horrendously expensive to sign books for readers in the US and the UK, so I’ve done a limited print run of book plates for fans of my writing.

Book plates are A5 size stylized stickers I can sign and post anywhere in the world. They can then be stuck inside any of my novels to give you a unique personalized book.

Signed copies of The Great Gatsby have sold for US$90,000

My autograph will never be in high demand, but while researching this I was impressed to learn that signed copies of J.K. Rowling‘s first edition of Harry Potter are worth $24,000, while her hand written copy of The Tales of Beedle The Bard sold at auction for an astonishing $4 million!!


J.K. Rowling clearly had a LOT of fun with this

If you’d like a book plate, please leave a message on this page with…

  • your postal address
  • and the name of the book you have

I’ll write something about that book and mail the book plate to you. Your comment/address will not be made public, and will be deleted once I’ve popped your book plate in the mail.

All the best,

  1. I might as well just order one of each as I will have all of your books pretty soon. Can I do that? I didn’t realize so many had physical versions. I own most Kindle versions but I’ll be shopping soon for the physicals.

  2. Thanks Peter.
    Will probably buy a paper copy of one of your books, haven’t decided which yet, and stick it in.
    Hopefully, one day it will be worth a lot more, but unless it’s over a million (!), it will be worth it just as a personalised copy of one of my favourite authors.
    Best wishes,
