Contact Information

The bad news if you are trying to contact me: I have intentionally closed off all direct means of communication. This is for my own mental well-being and that of my family, and because my main priority is writing the best stories I can in the most timely fashion possible, which requires all my attention. Alas, I am easily distracted, and I get many more requests for my time and attention than I can possibly manage.

I do not share my email or any other type of address. You can follow updates on my social media accounts: Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, but I no longer run these accounts myself, nor do I read or respond to anything on social media.

You can send fan mail to me in care of my publisher:

Rick Riordan

c/o DISNEY PUBLISHING WORLDWIDE

77 West 66th St.

New York, NY 10023

While we try our best to screen all fan mail, the large volume of correspondence Disney receives makes it impossible for me to respond personally. Please do not expect an answer. If you are writing for a school project that gives extra credit for receiving an author reply, I’m not the best author to choose.

Also, please do not attempt to send books or other objects through the mail for autographs. Disney-Hyperion Publishing is not equipped to handle the volume of requests they receive, and cannot be responsible for the return of any items sent through the mail. If you try to circumvent the system by sending something to what you think is an alternate address for me, you can be absolutely guaranteed you will receive no reply.

Be Aware: Any other Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or other social media accounts claiming to be me or authorized by me are NOT. If you get an email, instant message or other communication from someone online claiming to be me, it is NOT me. I am not on social media. I do not authorize any accounts except for those above, and I do not reply to messages or initiate communication with people online.
