Hi. John here. The best way to contact me depends upon the nature of your inquiry. So…
Press & publicity
Questions about press and publicity should be directed to Elyse Marshall, whose email address is emarshall((@))penguinrandomhouse.com, except obviously without the parentheses.
Questions about movie rights and other things that involve money should go to my agent, the lovely and tenacious Jodi Reamer at Writers House. Her email address is jreamer((@))writershouse.com.
Visits and speaking engagements
The person to talk to about library visits and speaking engagements is Kelly Jelinski at the Penguin Speakers Bureau, who can be reached at kjelinski((@))penguinrandomhouse.com. (It should be noted that I travel very rarely these days.) My speaker profile can be found here.
Purchase signed copies of my books
If you would like to purchase signed copies of my books, you can do so through the first great bookstore love of my life, The Book Cellar in Chicago. Email words((@))bookcellarinc.com and let them know the titles in which you are interested. There is sometimes a waiting list, but they are the best option.
If you wish to send me something in the actual mail because you want to support the good men and women of the United States Postal Service, you are welcome to do so care of my publisher, Dutton Books for Young Readers, at 345 Hudson Street in the great city of New York, NY, zip code 10014. My P.O. Box is number 30152 in Indianapolis, IN 46230. However, please note that I do not reply to snail mail. There are no exceptions to this rule. I do not even reply to snail mail from my mom.
