Authors won’t always receive an appearance fee, but the conversation remains essential

Dear Agony Editor,I’ve published a novel that is enjoying some success. I’m lucky enough to be in-vited to speak at libraries and other community groups. I want to connect with readers and respond positively to these requests, but accepting them means I’m not at my desk writing (my means of making a living) and they often mean travel expenses.

I don’t want to gouge any-one but these appearances do cost me in a number of ways. Is it appropriate to ask for a fee and if so, what is an appropriate amount? Signed,Apropos
