Email Henry

A Note from H.C.

I truly appreciate emails and letters from readers. I read every one of them and do my best to reply. At times, however, deadlines and email volume keep me from replying promptly. All too often, emails get buried in my inbox, and my memory doesnít seem to be improving with age. If youíd like to comment on something Iíve written, please feel free. If you donít receive a reply within a few weeks, please follow up.

Although I sometimes read manuscripts or review copies sent by publishers, Iím afraid I can no longer read and provide commentary or blurbs on works sent directly from writers I donít know personally. I feel awful about this, but I no longer have the time, and the number of requests has become overwhelming. Please accept my apology

If you find the articles and links Iíve posted useful, I hope youíll support my future work by purchasing some of my books.

Finally, Iím relieved to report that Iím not the English poet Henry Chappell (1874-1937), author of ďA Soldierís Kiss.Ē
