Here’s the final list of authors who got handwritten thank you notes from me:

  • Tamora Pierce
  • Jacqueline Winspear
  • Garth Nix
  • Jill Barklem
  • Patricia C. Wreede
  • Elizabeth Gilbert
  • Francesca Lia Block
  • Barbara Kingsolver
  • Karen Russell
  • Caitlin Doughty
Only Barbara Kingsolver wrote back.  Classy lady she is.  It was really nice, even though it was a form letter.  I think she hand signed it though.
