Terms & conditions
Here's the boring bit. Any children who've strayed on to this page by accident might want to go and look at one of the other pages; this one's for grown-ups who might want to book me for an event.
I’m willing to do all kinds of visits, including but not limited to:
Schools, teacher training colleges, summer schemes, writing camps etc should refer to the Terms & Conditions document in the next column.
Visits to libraries will normally be charged at a rate based on my standard fee (as per the T&Cs document) but taking into account the length of the visit.
Bookshop events will usually be free of charge. This assumes that the visit will include no more than a reading or two and a signing session, and that there’ll be tea and biscuits. Chocolate ones.
It’s been my experience so far that festivals generally offer a reasonable fee as standard. If you’re a festival and you’d like to book me, then please let me know how much you pay contributors - I’d expect you to pay me the same as any other contributor.
Evil criminal geniuses bent on world domination should expect to pay upfront, in full.
