“Email is a wonderful thing for people whose role in life is to be on top of things. But not for me; my role is to be on the bottom of things.” —Don Knuth
Please note: I get so much email that it’s impossible for me to respond to most of it! (If I did, I’d have no time to actually, you know, write anything.) It’s nice to hear from readers and fans, and I read everything, but I just can’t write back to everyone. Forgive me in advance. (PS. I’m better at responding to newsletter subscribers. If you just want to say hi, tweet at me.)
Shoot an email to me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org

I love getting new books and other goodies in the mail, but please keep in mind that I am not a professional book reviewer. I only share things that I genuinely like, and I am under no obligation to write about, blog, promote, or even acknowledge the receipt of things people send me. Also, I’m not a creative writing professor or a literary critic, so I don’t give out notes, or tell people if their work is any good. Don’t send me unpublished manuscripts or anything that needs returned. If you’re dying to hear back from me, you can increase the likelihood I’ll write back by sending a self-addressed and stamped envelope.
Students: Pretend I’m dead!
Students! I love you, but, unfortunately, I can’t answer questions for your projects. If you have a question about my work, the best thing to do is research me as if I’ve been dead for a while. Read my books, check out my interviews, watch videos, Google me, etc. (And feel free to share this policy with your teacher!) A good place to start your research is my about page — there’s a ton of information there.
