First off, love the blog. It’s absolutely a necessity for me anymore.
This may be an idiotic question, but I’d figure you’d let me know if it was. With postage rates rising as of May 14, would you recommend to writers that we affix an extra stamp to our SASEs if we even suspect that the reply time will overlap that date? Seems like the logical thing to do, but I would guess many writers would rather not unnecessarily dip into gin funds to produce extra postage, however small that may be. Though I suspect slathering our SASE with postage may scream “I don’t know what I’m doing.”
Thanks for the fount of valuable advice and having the patience to indoctrinate the clueless.
Oh you haven't heard about the "Forever" stamp!
It's always a first class stamp, no matter what you paid for it.
Here's the link to USPS.
You pay 41cents NOW and your SASEs don't need an extra stamp even if Miss Lolly Gag delays replying until the cows come home in June, 2009.
I think this is pretty darn brilliant.
