The best way to make sure you stay up to date about me and my books is to sign up for my newsletter using the fields below (note: if you are not 13 or older, you must have your parent's permission before signing up). And I promise, you don't have to worry about me spamming your inbox--I only send out a couple of newsletters a year. But they have all the important launch and tour details everyone is always wondering about:

Otherwise, if you have questions about me or my books, or feel like telling me how awesome I am (I'm totally kidding about that last one) (Sort of...) feel free to email me at:

SWMessenger (at) hotmail (dot) com 

But PLEASE check my FAQs (and the KEEPER Specific FAQs) first. There's a very good chance I've already answered your question--and if I have, you won't get a reply to your email (since the information is already available for you to find)

If you have a question about Skypes/School Visits you can find some additional information HERE. You're also welcome to email me at the email address above if you still have questions after you check that link (please put "School/Skype Visit" somewhere in the subject line.) 

And I'll admit, my email response time to fanmail is very very slow (I'm averaging more than eighteen months now--sorry!) and I can't guarantee you'll get a response. I *love* hearing from fans (really, you have *no* idea how happy it makes me), but there are only so many hours in a day, and I have to give priority to writing and deadlines (which I'm betting is what you guys want me to focus on too--since that means more books!) So please bear with me. I love you guys, I really do. But I can't always interact as much as I'd like or as quickly as I'd like.

**Any emails requesting help with homework or that include samples of your own writing (or links to it) get immediately deleted by my assistant. For an explanation on why, please see my FAQs page**

If you would like to mail something to me (yeah, that old fashioned words-written-on-paper thing!) here's my mailing address:

Shannon Messenger
c/o Aladdin Publicity Department 
Simon & Schuster, Inc. 
1230 Avenue of the Americas 
New York, NY 10020

Replies are (sadly) not guaranteed (though I do try my best!), but they only have a chance of happening if you include a self addressed, stamped envelope along with your letter.

Other,  ways of staying in touch:

I'm @SW_Messenger, and I post a lot of updates here

Also under @SW_Messenger, and I post updates and bonus art here

I have an AUTHOR PAGE as well as a FAN PAGE and a BOOK PAGE and I do my best to respond to comments or wall postings. And don't feel shy about sending friend requests. I accept pretty much all of them (unless you REALLY send up a creeper flag in which case um... maybe don't contact me, period. *shudder*)

If you have any inquiries regarding my books (or any rights thereof, including foreign translation and film inquiries) please contact my literary agent:
