Thank you for visiting my website and for your interest in my books! If you’re simply a reader wishing to get in touch with me about my books, please scroll to the bottom of this page. Otherwise, please read through the FAQ before contacting me.
Can you send me an ARC or review copy of your book(s)?
No. At this time there are no more advance review copies left of any of my novels. You are welcome to email my publisher, Little, Brown, at email@example.com, just in case.
Are you available for interviews?
Sometimes; it depends on my schedule and your deadline. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will consider your request.
Will you write an unpaid guest post/essay/story for my blog/website/magazine/book?
No. At this time I am not writing for free. If your project pays professional rates, please feel free to contact me (email@example.com) and I’ll consider it.
Will you blurb/endorse my novel?
Maybe. Please read my blurb policy before contacting me.
Are you available for school/library visits, conference keynotes, book festivals or other book events?
As of May 1, 2015, I live in the North Shore area of Massachusetts, and at this time I am fully booked for travel outside of New England through the end of 2015. If your event is after that date, you are welcome to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with details.
If your event is in New England, you’re welcome to contact me (email@example.com) and I will consider it.
Please be aware that I typically charge a speaker’s fee and require that my transportation and accommodation be covered. The fee varies depending on the nature of the event, the location, and the organization hosting the event.
Will you donate a copy of your book(s) to my fundraiser or send me some of your books for my classroom/library/community center?
I’m afraid not. I donate my books to schools and libraries when I have them, but I’m unable to accommodate these requests otherwise.
Can I write a post for your website?
No. On rare occasions I will invite someone to write a guest post, but those requests always come from me. Please do not pitch me.
Can you answer some questions for my homework assignment?
No. But please feel free to search my website, where I have written a lot about my writing process, for more about me and my books.
