School time + Author time = LEARNING STUDENTS
*RING, RING, RING*
It’s that time of the year again…
- Freshly sharpen pencils
- New notebooks
- Books being cracked open for the first time
Yes, I get excited this time of the year. And no, it’s not because my child goes back to school. Although the whole “we have a schedule” is an added bonus. I get excited because this is my busy time. Time for me to…
- open my planner
- email TONS of media specialist in my state
- make sure my website is up to date and has all my pdfs ready
- go to school and talk about writing
Yep, AUTHOR VISITS!
My next block of blog posts will be covering this topic.
WHO to contact to schedule visits?
WHAT is an author visit?
WHEN should you hold an author visit?
WHERE can you hold an author visit in your school?
HOW to prepare for an author visit? (author and school)
WHY should you invite an author to visit your school?
PLUS any other nuggets I can throw into the mix!
I also plan on compiling a list of authors and illustrators who offer author visits (in person and online).
So keep coming back, sign up for updates on my blog —->
And encourage your local schools to book an author!
Drop me a comment!!!
*Leave me your information if you are an AUTHOR or ILLUSTRATOR that would like to be included on my list. I will need your NAME, WEBSITE, and STATE YOU LIVE IN.

Can’t wait to read what you have to offer and I hope to help some of you along the way.
