Part 19: Choosing the Right Tablet
It goes without saying, unmarked graves garner few readers. By far, stone tablets are the longest lasting and require very little maintenance, though new technologies must be considered. Video gravestones, while pricey, are an excellent choice for posthumous authors who have had their work made into movies. Displaying a continuous “trailer” is a sure-fire way to generate interest. Indeed, theater-like mausoleums are all the vogue at present. Coin operated displays can also be effective, though less so nowadays. Many newly-dead writers opt for the wireless solution: a simple but eminently readable screen embedded in your tombstone that allows for free previews and (paid) bluetooth downloads to nearby devices. Check your cemetery to see what’s right for you.
