Ever feel like you are hand selling your work? If you already handle all the marketing, especially for small publishing editions, consider setting your work apart further by designating a signed edition. These can additionally be numbered (hand or machine) and/or carry special pages such as color or bonus. Consider marketing the edition as signed and limited – even designating a special ISBN.
