ALL PROFESSIONAL INQUIRIES should be directed to admin (at) raymondbenson.com
APPEARANCE REQUESTS–SPEAKING AND/OR PIANO PERFORMANCE: Raymond is a sought-after lecturer and pianist. His slideshow/lecture “The James Bond Phenomenon” is extremely popular. He also lectures on film topics, writing, and his career as a freelancer. As a musician, Raymond is available to perform on piano at parties and other venues. Please direct inquiries to admin (at) raymondbenson.com
CHARITY DONATION REQUESTS: Raymond receives literally dozens of charity donation requests per month. Because he has a limited amount of copies of his books to give to charity (or autographs, photos), Raymond MUST be selective of which charities he supports. He simply cannot accommodate every request. If you make a request and do not receive an answer, please understand that it is not a slight of your cause.
AUTOGRAPH REQUESTS must be made in writing to the mailing address below. Correct return postage MUST be included. When sending material to sign, please include your e-mail address to contact you in case there are questions. It is also recommended that you e-mail Raymond prior to sending anything in the mail to provide a “heads-up.” Vague received requests with unreadable names can often be interpreted as phishing attempts to gain signatures for re-sale or other dubious intents. Please be explicit in identifying who you are, or requests will be ignored.
If you have any questions or comments for Raymond, please use the address listed below. E-mail for Raymond will be forwarded and he will try to reply, pending his schedule.
