I love talking with students across the country about reading and writing. I've had so many wonderful experiences thanks to the wonder that is Skype, I can't imagine not offering these types of virtual visits as long as I'm doing this author thing.
However, because I've gone back to work part-time, I'm not able to do as many free, short Skype visits with classrooms as I once did. This is mostly because I'm just not going to be at home and available as much. (Please note: if you are interested in a longer, paid visit, please don't worry - I'll be able to work with you to find a date/time that works for you. As always, you may contact me using the email address on my contact page about scheduling an in-depth visit with your classroom, school, reading group, etc.)
What I've decided to do is devote one day every month that will specifically be for free Skype visits for students who have read one or more of my books. Every couple of months, I'll try to remember to put the information about my availability on my blog, so if you're interested, you can check your calendar and see if there's a date that works for you. These free visits are for educational groups only -- I'm not able to do one-on-one Skype visits with individuals, sorry.
Currently I'm scheduling 20 minute Q&A Skype visits for the following days:
Wednesday, February 11, 2015
Wednesday, March 4, 2015 (this is World Read Aloud Day, and I've already begun getting requests, so if you're interested, get in touch ASAP)
Tuesday, April 14, 2015
Thanks, as always, for your support of me and my books - it's so appreciated!
