Contacts, Info, and Credits

There is a LOT of information on this page, including instructions for purchasing signed copies AND just about all the info I have about the books. Check out the red descriptors at the beginning of each paragraph.

I regret that during the COVID-19 pandemic, I am not able to provide signed copies of books from Harvard Book Store as usual. I hope to return to that soon. However, if you're reading this before or during the week of January 19, 2021, note that you can purchase signed copies and/or bookplates via my virtual book events at Brookline Booksmith on 1/19 and Mysterious Galaxy on 1/24. See more details here:

My agent is the goddess Faye Bender, sine qua non, one of the founding partners of The Book Group.

My American publisher for Graceling is the team of superstars at Harcourt Children's Books (September 2008).

My American publisher for Fire and Bitterblue is another team of superstars!, this time at Dial Books for Young Readers, a Penguin imprint (Fire, October 2009; Bitterblue, May 2012). (The switch is the result of an editorial move.)

My American publisher for Jane, Unlimited is the same Penguin superstars, but under the imprint Kathy Dawson Books -- because my wonderful editor started her own imprint since I last released a book. (September 2017)

I love my foreign publishers! Thank you to everyone who's showing interest in publishing my books around the world -- I'm humbled and overwhelmed! Here's everyone (though I haven't added my foreign publishers for Jane, Unlimited yet, so all of the following are for the fantasies):

Regarding the timing of releases, especially of foreign translations:
Every territory has a different timetable, and I don't always have the latest information. I recommend doing some googling. Particularly if you speak the language, you'll probably be able to find a more accurate answer than I can.

Regarding general questions,
my FAQ pages are up now, and will answer a lot of questions.

If you are a writer, I wish you joy and luck. There are some thoughts about writing in my FAQ pages and I blog about it sometimes. I regret, however, that I am unable to read manuscripts.

Regarding blog interviews and guest posts, I'm sorry to say I'm unable to take these on at the moment; I hope to have more time in the future when things are less nutty! (Things will be less nutty in the future, right?)

Regarding invitations, please feel free to contact my Penguin publicists. I regret that I do not do school visits.

If you love the true literary study of YA and middle grade novels and picture books -- and/or if you're interested in writing same -- by all means check out the Center for the Study of Children's Literature at Simmons College. They offer an MA in Children's Literature and an MFA in Writing for Children. I went the MA route and can say that the program is rigorous, invigorating, and inspiring, and it changed my life in all the best ways.

The portraits on my Bio and Writing Process pages were taken by Daniel Burbach.

If you're wondering how to pronounce my name, go here and click on it. And then click on everyone else's name. It's fun!

You can send me mail at:
Kristin Cashore

I'll state up front, especially for people doing school projects, that I receive a lot of mail and can't always write back!

I do not have a public email address. Sorry!

And that's all.
