Show Notes


Scott Reintgen is a young adult and middle grade author, who specializes in writing fantasy and science fiction. His tenth novel, A Door in the Dark, which came out this week from Simon & Schuster, is the first installment of his Waxwings series. His other series are the Nyxia Triad and Ashlords series, as well as the Talespinners series and the Celia Cleary series for middle graders. 

     A former English and creative writing teacher in North Carolina, Scott has done over 500 school visits since he debuted in 2017. With so much experience, he has developed the process of doing author visits to schools – virtually and in-person – into not so much an art, but more a science. So in this extended Part Two episode of the Authors & Audiences School Visit series, Scott shares his incredible knowledge and strategies, including pitching visits, collaboration with bookstores, pricing and librarians.
