Before you get in touch…

I’m on paternity leave until May 2015. Which means I’m not responding to email much, if at all.

For general inquiries, such as booking me for an interview, just shoot an email to me directly: [email protected]

To invite me to speak at your event, contact Paige Russell at Leigh Bureau by phone at 1-908-253-6047 or by email: [email protected].

For rights inquiries, my literary agent is Ted Weinstein.

For review copies of Show Your Work!, contact Selina Meere at Workman Publishing.

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, make anything.) It’s nice to hear from readers and fans, and I read everything, but I just can’t keep up with it all. Forgive me in advance.

For snail mail: Please don’t send me unpublished manuscripts or anything that needs returned. I like getting books and other stuff in the mail, but keep in mind my review policy.


Pretend I’m dead!

Students! If you have a question about my work, the best thing to do is research me as if I’ve been dead for 500 years! A good place to start is my about page — there’s a ton of information there.

Most of the advice I have to give about getting started and getting your work out there is in my books, Steal Like An Artist and Show Your Work! I also blog a lot about my process, so try poking around in the archives.

Remember: there are no stupid questions, only “You couldn’t f***ing Google that?” questions.
