Good News about travel expenses.
Many schools worry about travel expenses being prohibitive. They can be, but don't have to be. For most schools, if you can commit to an author visit at least three months in advance, I can offer you a flat fee of $300 per day for travel expenses (includes air fare, lodging, and car rental). Now, I did say for most schools. I'm not trying to bait and switch. That is not the way I work. If your school is in a remote or difficult to access location I may not be able to offer the $300 flat fee. If you think you may live in one of those remote areas, contact me and I tell you what I can do.
