I sent a partial to an agent, and I didn't take into account the postage increase on May 14th. If she sends me my SASE after that date, my stamp won't work. What should I do?
We've laid in a stock of penny stamps for this. Generally I put stamps on SASEs that don't have the new postage particularly if I've been a slacker and held on to something too long.
If you don't hear back in 30 days of course, write again and include an envelope with the correct postage.
Really smart queriers bought FOREVER stamps to put on their SASEs. The Forever stamp is the correct postage no matter when you bought it or use it It only works for #10 envelopes with a few pages at most, I believe (ie you can't put it on an catalog envelope for the return of 30 pages).
I hate postage increases.
Thanks though for reminding me. I better get the slush pile dealt with this weekend to beat the deadline.
