I recently updated my contact information on my website. Because of my intense writing schedule, I’ve had to cut off most ways for people to get in touch with me. Unfortunately, I’m easily distracted, and answering email, letters, tweets, Facebook, etc. eats into my time too much. I think you guys would rather have me spending my time finishing the next book.
Contact by email
Unfortunately at the present time Rick is not able to accept email through his website because of his writing schedule. In order to get the next book finished in a timely fashion so you don’t have to wait any longer than necessary to read it, he has to keep focused on the writing! However, you can check the FAQ page for answers to the most commonly asked questions.
Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking sites:
Click here for Rick’s Facebook page. Rick’s blog feeds into his Facebook page, and he does accept friend requests from time to time, but Rick is not an active Facebook user. He doesn’t read or respond to emails through Facebook. As mentioned above, this is so he can keep focused on his writing.
You can follow Rick on Twitter at @camphalfblood. This is a good way to keep up with the latest from Rick, but he does not reply to direct queries through Twitter.
BE AWARE: Any other Facebook pages or Twitter accounts claiming to be Rick Riordan or authorized by Rick Riordan are not. Always be skeptical when someone makes a claim about their identity on the Internet. People pretend to be someone else all the time. If you get an email, instant message or other communication from someone online claiming to be Rick Riordan, it is NOT from Rick. He does not use any accounts except the ones above, and does not initiate communications with people online.
Contact by regular mail
You can send letters to Rick in care of his publisher:
c/o Hyperion Books for Children
114 Fifth Avenue
New York, NY 10011
This is the ONLY address through which Rick accepts fan mail. If you try to send mail to any other address, it will not reach Rick and will not be answered. Be aware that it can take several months for mail to be forwarded to Rick through the publisher. Rick always reads fan letters, but due to the large volume of mail he receives, he cannot respond personally to letters.
Please DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SEND BOOKS OR OTHER ITEMS THROUGH THE MAIL FOR AUTOGRAPHS. We cannot accommodate such shipments, and will not be responsible for the condition or return of any items sent through the mail.
