You may email me at claredunkle at gmail.com. But first, please see the notes below. I may have already answered your question or addressed your concern.
Many readers contact me in order to ask a question about one
of my books, such as whether the book is being made into a
movie. I have posted questions and answers about my books on the following

I've posted questions
and answers about my career under the Reader
Questions button on the right-hand side of this page.
have put my very best writing and publishing advice in this
separate section. Please read all the pages there before
asking me any questions about book publishing. Please
note that I cannot advise you on whether or not you should
use a particular agent, publishing house, or editor. I cannot
give further advice on self publishing, subsidy publishing,
or book marketing, either. And I cannot advise you on legal
or contract questions. You need to speak to a lawyer.
Unfortunately, I cannot read your written work, such as
a story, poem, or manuscript. To find out why, please read
WHY HAVEN'T I
ANSWERED YOUR EMAIL?
Unfortunately, I can no longer answer all of the reader
mail I receive. I could put together a form letter to send
to you, but I have a lot of respect for my readers, and I think
that if you take the time to write to me, you are hoping that I
will take the time to write a personal message back to you. A form
letter isn't personal, so it just won't do.
I still intend to answer as much reader mail as I can, but if I can't find the time
to reply to yours, please remember that I was very happy to hear from you and that I would have written you back if I could.
I still intend to answer as many readers as I can, but if you have
not received an answer within two weeks of writing me, then I'm
afraid that one of the following things has happened:
I couldn't find the time to reply. This has nothing to do with
your email and everything to do with what was on my schedule during
those two weeks;
you filled in the form and forgot to fill in your email address;
your email address is invalid;
your email account has blocked my reply to you as "spam."
Unfortunately, the last problem happens quite frequently!
If you haven't received
a reply, please email me again from a different account and
let me know it is the second time you are trying to reach
me. Perhaps another email address will not be so picky, or my schedule will allow me time to reply to this email.
