THERE IS NO CHARGE TO BE LISTED on this blog, however I do ask for a reciprocal link to Cool School Visits, at where I offer lots of free advice about doing school visits. I also ask for a social media shoutout about my book, SELL BOOKS AND GET PAID DOING AUTHOR SCHOOL VISITS. (<-- That's a live link to Amazon.) Sorry, except for a few close friends, I can only list you in your home state.
MY DEFINITION OF "TRADITIONALLY PUBLISHED"...If you're with a publisher you know I'll recognize, write to me and I'll add you. If you have any doubts, CLICK THIS LINK and scroll down to a list approved on SCBWI's "Published and Listed" (PAL) list. If you see your publisher on this list, write to me. If not, then you're with a publisher too obscure to be added. I don't want these author lists to become so lengthy that the site loses its original intent: to save educators time when "shopping" for an author.

• Do I need a brochure?
• What should I put on my author website?

• Are self-published authors hired to do author visits? (Good news! Yes!)
• What kind of equipment and technology do I need?
• What goes into an author presentation?
