Sending a Postcard to an Author

I've been wanting to send a thank-you note to author Charles de Lint for a while.  Being that it's Month of Letters, I decided now was the time.  What postcard to send?  I went through a whole dialogue with myself before I finally realized that a card from Penguin's box of 100 book covers would be perfect.

The Lost Girl by D. H. Lawrence, 1950 is still widely available.
Have you written to a favourite author to let him or her know how much you have enjoyed their works?  If not, then it is time.
For more postal fun, be sure to visit with Beth at The Best Hearts are Crunchy for her Postcard friendship Friday.


  1. A perfect choice! I've received one or two from that box though not recently. I like the Puffin Book postcards too - memories of childhood.

  2. I don't really have a favorite author. I think the Penguin postcard idea was a good one, but I wonder how many people are using them to write.

  3. I did LetterMo too but never thought to write to an author. It's a good idea to keep in mind. Thanks.


Leaving a comment is like sending a postcard; we'd love to hear from you.
