SCHEDULE AN AUTHOR VISIT
I love author visits! Talking with students and readers at schools and libraries is one of the best parts of this whole "being an author" thing. In the past year, I’ve visited schools and libraries in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, California, Kentucky, Texas, and Pennsylvania.
Because I author books for a variety of ages, it's best to first chat about your school's needs. So... simply email me at email@example.com.
I’ll answer all your questions and then some! In the meantime, here are answers to some of the most common queries:
How much do you charge for visits?
My honorarium for visits in the New York tri-state area is $1,250, plus travel and expenses. For visits requiring additional travel, please contact me for custom rates.
What grades do you present to?
With books for early readers and a middle-grade audience, I'm able to present to grades 1 - 6. If you had something in mind for an older audience, simply contact me and we can discuss.
Do you do Virtual Visits?
Yep, I do! I love dropping in for a 30–45 minute virtual visit and Q&A with classrooms, book groups, and library groups using Skype, FaceTime, or Google Hangouts. Virtual visit honorarium is $250.
What's the best way to order books for a visit?
Depending on which titles you'd like order, I will connect you with the appropriate contact at that publisher so you can place bulk orders at a discount.
What's the deal with AV Tech and that confusing stuff?
I just need a screen for my PowerPoint presentation, a podium or table where I can access my computer during the presentation, and a microphone if it’s needed for the room. I bring my own computer — it’s a MacBook and I have all the standard hookup cables for a projector.
