Coming Soon: New and Improved Versions of The Writer's Glove

Coming Soon: New and Improved Versions of The Writer's Glove

Welcome (Again)

What do you think of the new digs? This is quite an improvement over the previous incarnation of thewritersglove.com, which for better or worse is forever archived on the Internet somewhere. Maybe I'll hang a printout on the wall some day.

The new website should clue you into what's been happening here. The Writer's Glove grew by leaps and bounds since it was first introduced last year, and can count 25 countries around the world as homes to its customers. By the end of 2016, it was clear that what started as a literal basement/garage project needed an upstairs treatment.

That meant finding new suppliers, formalizing the business and coming up with a plan that didn't leave customers waiting for stock to arrive. I'm happy to say all of that came true in 2017. Later this summer, I can reveal the results. I couldn't be more excited.

Improvements

That's good news for anyone with cold, stiff fingers while they type (or attempt to type) on a computer keyboard. The new and improved editions of The Writer's Glove take into account the feedback customers gave me on the original edition.

  • Higher quality materials means warmer gloves for cold hands and fingers.
  • More durable construction means far fewer runs, tears and holes. Your writing gloves will last longer.
  • Smarter design makes for a more comfortable fit, from wrist to fingertip.
  • Still made with natural, hypoallergenic, 100 percent silk. There's a reason it's been used for thousands of years.

Two Editions to Choose From

Also new are the two different editions of The Writer's Glove, a change from the single version found in the original incarnation.

  • Standard Edition: A warm glove for writing on keyboards with cold hands and fingers.
  • Deluxe Edition: Those same warm gloves, plus touchscreen-compatible index fingertips and a light grip in the palms/fingers for holding items securely.

These two editions allow you to choose exactly the glove you need. If you only care about typing on computer keyboards, go with the Standard Edition and save a few bucks. If you want all the bells and whistles, the Deluxe Edition is the better bet.

Coming Late Summer 2017 - Be the First to Know

These two new editions will make their debut in late summer 2017. You can receive a notice when they arrive by submitting your e-mail address here.

I hope you're as excited as I am about this new chapter. Stay tuned!

The Writer’s Glove Makes List of Best “Desktop Hacks”

The Writer’s Glove Makes List of Best “Desktop Hacks”

What a nice surprise it was to see The Writer’s Glove show up on Laptops to Lullabies, where it was featured as one of five Weird-but-Awesome Desktop Hacks. The site is operated by Heather Laura Clarke, a newspaper journalist and blogger in Canada. It doesn’t get much better than that!

They’re thin silk gloves that fit snugly and you can still type normally — even on touchscreens like my iPhone. They’re 20 bucks, U.S., and come with free shipping. I have the extra-small size and they’re fantastic.

The article is full of other terrific “hacks” helpful for anyone who puts in a lot of keyboard time. I especially like number five, seeing as how I drop my iPhone about as many times a day. Read the full article here.

New York Times, USA Today and Amazon Bestselling Author Enjoys The Writer’s Gloves

It’s a red letter day here at The Writer’s Glove. I’m always thrilled to hear from people who find these thin gloves for typing useful, but it’s not every day that feedback comes from someone who wrote the number one e-book in the world on Amazon. And hit the New York Times bestseller’s list. And USA Today. And appeared on Fox News to comment on the publishing industry. And was featured in a New York Times piece on writing in the 21st Century. And, and, and, and…

And his name is Vincent Zandri. Guess what? Sometimes he gets cold hands when he’s cranking out the hits on his keyboard. I was happy to send him a pair of The Writer’s Glove to keep his writing game up.

It turns out they were just the trick, as his Facebook post shows:

Best gloves for fiction writers with cold hands

Here’s more of his feedback from the threads beneath the pic:

P.S. Be sure to check out Zandri’s work. His novels are terrific. I recommend The Remains as a good jumping in spot for his extensive catalog of mystery/thriller reads.
