Speaking Fees

I am often asked to give talks, interviews, and media appearances about my books. And I often do it for free, because I love talking to readers! If you’re interested in having me come speak or present before your group, I may be able to accommodate your request on the conditions set below.

Out of Town Appearances

Fee may be waived if event can be coordinated with my publisher or agent on a scheduled book tour. Otherwise please contact my Speaker’s Bureau for fee information.

Local Appearances (Within 60 miles of Baltimore)

I schedule one free local appearance a month, on a first-come, first-serve basis with conventions, clubs, libraries, schools or book clubs. If I’m already booked up, as my schedule allows, I will negotiate a fee with your organization for an hour long presentation with a Q&A session. The fee may be higher for a power point presentation.

Skype Sessions

I schedule a Skype session a month for free on a first-come, first-serve basis to book clubs, libraries, or schools. If I’m already booked up, as my schedule allows, I charge $50 for a half-hour Q&A session or $100 for a half-hour presentation to be followed by Q&A. This fee is negotiable for libraries and and historical associations.
