Writing - How much for a letter?

The value of letters increases annually. I am not talking about letters you post but the letters you use to make up the words that you write. However, in comparison with their shelf life they are still relatively inexpensive but then of course some value has to be attached to letters according to who wrote them. So when a lady bought Silas Marner in a bookshop for £1 a letter that had found its way into the book was written by Enid Blyton. It will sell for a lot more I'm sure.
Now my words and letters are, as yet, are no where near as valuable but you never know!

A woman has found a letter by popular children's author Enid Blyton in a book that cost £1.

Jacqueline Ralph found the note in a copy of Silas Marner, by George Eliot, which she purchased in the Cinema Bookshop in Hay-on-Wye.
The letter reads: "Dear Mary, my warm congratulations on winning one of my prizes.
"You did very well and you deserve a prize. I am very pleased to send it. Well done! Love from Enid Blyton."


Here are some of my letters!

7 Hours After may well be described as historical even now. If  it is available in the future it will be more so and that is because it is my take on a real event.




Synopsis

Patrick Steele is off crusading once again with his sidekick, fiancée Naomi Kobayashi. This time he is risking life and limb by returning to the hostile shores of the USA. He has had brushes with the authorities in that vast country on previous occasions, but now has been stimulated to return because of apparent dodgy dealings over the World Trade Centre disaster of September 11th 2001.
After discovering numerous ‘theories’ concerning 9/11 and who was behind it, Steele identifies possible links between large corporations with financial interests and political parties. In a presidential election year he is concerned that those vying for that prodigious post may have links with the disaster.
Has Steele discovered underhand dealing by the US security services?
Did one of the major political parties have a hand in the destruction of 9/11?
Will Steele be caught by the CIA or can he escape back to the safety of the UK?
What was Building 7?


The book is available in paperback and for electronic devices.
