Thank you from Diana

Here's Diana Gabaldon's reaction to the 20th Anniversary essay collection:
Dear Karen (and all)--

Just wanted to come by in person to thank you all--so much!--for the wonderful book of essays. They're delightful: funny, heart-wrenching, and everything in between. Thanks so much for giving me these little pieces of yourselves; I treasure them.

--Diana
Needless to say, I'm just DELIGHTED with her response!  I wanted to make sure everyone here saw it, because it's really intended not just for me, but for all of you, the readers of Outlandish Observations, who took the time to put your thoughts down in writing and send them to me.  I couldn't have done it without you!

You're welcome! This is the first time I've ever done anything like that, and it was a lot of fun.

Hi Karen! Thanks for stopping by my special review of Outlander. You've got a GREAT blog going here. What a cool idea to send DG the winning essays! Off to snoop around some more...
