I took great interest in your latest written work; "Childhood Education at Home" as published by the York Daily News. I was so moved by the work that I thought it was necessary to write and thank you in person. It has proved to be a helpful guide and has raised many ideas about childhood education.

Letters to Authors
Letters to authors are letters written to writers of books, reports, or articles. Such letters are used to express appreciation of the authors' work and to motivate them to produce even better pieces. In rare cases, letters to authors may be used to point out mistakes in their work. A letter to the author can be of great help to the recipient in that it could help him/her know whether his/her piece is reaching the intended audience. It could also be a great opportunity for the author to learn and understand what he/she needs to do to produce a masterpiece.
Letters to authors can be formal or informal depending on the relationship you share with the recipient. If the recipient is a person you have never met, for example, use a professional and formal tone. On the other hand, if you know your recipient on a personal level, you may choose to go casual. Regardless, your letter should be brief and should only carry the intended message. Keep it classy and avoid making mean comments. Be specific and know exactly what you are talking about. If you feel that the recipient needs to improve, offer improvement suggestions. Close positively.
