Facetime*/Skype- Lots of authors are using Skype and FaceTime to conduct author visits these days. It's cheaper, and although you don't have the same intimacy as when an author is in house, children get excited about being able to "talk" to a live author. 

*FaceTime is for use ONLY with Apple products.
