Madame Carey is truly wonderful!

I wrote a quick, impulsive note to her (the Kushiel's series author) via her website which said:

And lo and behold, she replied with:
Dear Sara,

Thanks very much for your kind note! I'm delighted that the books are
finding such a wonderful readership. I'm glad you finally succumbed to
your boyfriend's persuasion and gave them a try. :) Best of luck to you
in your own writing endeavors!

Happy New Year,

- Jacqueline Carey

I truly love authors who give such time and affection to their fans, who realize that without us they would have no career.

So, ROCK ON MADAME, Carey! *grin*

Yes, she's awesome, isn't she? ^_^ I wrote to her once too (just asking for the tattoo giveaway thingie) but she was so nice and wrote me a little note back ^_^ Yay for down-to-earth authors!
I, too, wrote her for the signed bookplates. Not only did she send me the bookplates, but she also wrote me a personal note in response to the one I sent her. That was a wonderful surprise that thrilled me more than the bookplates!
