Permission to Quote, Copy, Reprint, or Use Published Passages or Works:
Do not send such requests directly to me. Contact my literary agent. She will respond promptly, and to all reasonable requests, positively. If there is any question to be answered or unusual aspect to the request she willl be in touch with me.
Requests to Read, Comment, and/or Blurb:
I do not make comments or give advice on manuscripts.
Do not send me any unpublished material without first inquiring. Include a self-addressed stamped envelope for my reply. Manuscripts, books in proof, and books that arrive without prior inquiry will be neither acknowledged nor returned.
2. PERSONAL MAIL:
Mail from Readers:
An interesting question from a reader or a kind fan letter can cheer a whole day. I love hearing from my readers, and wish I could answer every letter. But though I now have secretarial help, it’s limited, and so are my time and my stamina. You are very welcome to write to me, but please don’t expect a response. (If you are under ten years old, I will try really hard to answer.)
Please don’t send me a present, I can’t acknowledge it, and that makes me feel bad.
Don’t send me books to be autographed. I can’t handle them. I can’t return them. Don’t send them.
If you put U.S. postage on a self-addressed envelope, I’ll send you ONE autographed bookplate.
If you live in any country but the United States, I can send you an autograph only if you put UNITED STATES POSTAGE on a self-addressed envelope. (No other stamps will be accepted, and now International Reply Coupons are no longer valid.)
Postage information from the webmistress
Self-addressed stamped envelope requires 1 oz. U.S. postage. A regular business sized envelope is sufficient.
Readers outside the USA may find the U.S. Postal Service’s International Rate Calculator to be of use. The site also includes information about buying U.S. postage on line.
You may write UKL a letter and send it by street mail. If you want permission to quote, copy, or reprint from her work, or have a question about appearances, interviews, etc., please send those requests to her literary agent.
