My honorarium is negotiable. Outside of Sonoma County it may range from $600-$2000, plus travel expenses beyond 100 miles. I prefer large groups to small (could be whole auditorium), and not more than two presentations per day. I give my all. I read books of mine and encourage questions. Teachers and librarians should prepare students to ask questions. It could get noisy. There will be laughter. I’ve been known to dance and go flop flop flop. And I sign books ( which should be ordered by the school). All I need is a table, a microphone (for very large groups only) and a bottle of water.
