Email • Mailing address • A note for students
Due to the overwhelming number of emails I receive, I can barely even read them all, let alone get back to everybody. Forgive me in advance:
The best way to stay in touch with me is to become a newsletter subscriber. (Every week we chat in the comments.)
The address below is always up-to-date. No need to ask permission to send me things! Somebody checks the box every week:
1101 West 34th Street
Austin, TX 78705
I love getting books and other goodies in the mail, but please note I’m not a book reviewer or creative writing professor. I only read and share things that genuinely interest me.
Please don’t send me unpublished manuscripts or anything that needs to be returned.
If you’re dying to hear back from me, you can increase the likelihood I’ll write back by including 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.
If you’re looking for advice, all the advice I have to give about getting started and getting your work out there is in my books.
