IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU CONTACT ME: I am NOT the American Alison Weir, founder of the organisation 'If Americans Knew'. Unbelievably, I'm still getting emails - some of them threatening - from people who just ignore what it says here and assume that I'm her. Please be aware, before you contact me, that I am a British historian and have nothing to do with Middle-Eastern politics.

Please read before contacting me:


It is always a huge pleasure to receive emails and letters because I love engaging with readers. I try to respond to everyone, but because of my busy writing schedule, I regret that I am unable to reply at length, as I would wish, to each kind person who writes to say how much they have enjoyed my books or asks me a question. I do very much appreciate your encouraging words, and I am always touched whenever someone takes the trouble to write to me. I assure you that your comments are always read and digested.

I regret that I cannot respond to requests for assistance with private research, school, college or university projects, advice on getting published, study, careers within the historical field, CVs or finding work experience placements, or the reading of unsolicited texts.
 
If you would like a review copy of my latest book, please contact my publishers (see below).

I no longer give jacket quotes for books unless I myself invite them.

EVENT REQUESTS


I have done over 780 events at numerous historical sites, festivals, museums, art galleries, festivals, bookstores, libraries, organisations and charities in the UK, Ireland, the USA and Canada. I regret that, with such a busy programme of events, I no longer give talks to schools.


If you would like to book me for an event, please contact me at info@alisonweir.org.uk for an information sheet, booking form and list of talks, or contact my publishers.
