How Can I Thank You, Dear Author? Here’s How!
As an author, I am frequently asked to contribute copies of my books to charity events, or schools in need, or to Skype to a class or book club, etc. I am totally delighted to do such things when I am able!

Sometimes the recipients of such gifts of time/talent/treasure are very gracious, and say thank you in charming ways. But a writer friend wrote a blog spot on the very BEST ways to thank an author! It was so spot-on, I’ll link to it here:

You all knew about the mandatory chocolate author gifts, yes?
