  1. I did, I'm very curious as to what content I will receive. I'll let you know what I get.

  2. I was tempted to. But then I found out the letters aren't personalized. Which somehow made me less inclined to subscribe. I am curious however to see what Derrick gets. :)

  3. Paying for a machine copied, one-time letter (probably not originally handwritten or signed) and not even meant for me personally from somebody "famous" just doesn't appeal to me. But it seems a number of people are looking forward to their purchase.

  4. *Thanks Derrick. I look forward to your thoughts after your first letter.

    *Misty, what tempted you? I have a burning desire to find out if I'm missing a curiosity gene or something else that would inclined to subscribe. I think I'd rather write to someone I want to correspond with for what ever reason, than simply have a scanned copy of a letter that's possibly written as fan mail, and penned by an assistant or someone.

    *StoneZebra, I thought it was just me. I read the numerous comments and everyone sounded so enthusiastic. Figured I might me be too . . . What's the word I'm searching for? Lacking imagination?

    Well, maybe the subscribers see something we don't. I look forward to hearing from Derrick. I don't doubt he'll set us straight.

    Thanks.

  5. Shucks. Wonder if I can sell copies of my letters from authors like Maeve Binchy and the lot? I'd never. :)

  6. You have a letter from Maeve Binchy?? I love her books.

  7. *Medical Librarian, have your read "Minding Frankie?"

    Yes, I wrote to her after I read "A Circle of Friends, or maybe it was later, because I expressed my feelings for her "books"--which means I had to have read a few. She or her secretary wrote, thanking me. Maeve is one of several who have written back. Not so, Stephen King. LOL. I wrote to thank him for slaying the monsters, but he'd finally killed the biggest-worst-meanest one in his last book, so I no longer needed to read him any longer. I'm sure no author wants to hear that. :) Most writers write back. Especially now, if you mention you have a blog. ;)

    Let me know what you think of "Minding Frankie."
