Letters Across Time (LXT) is a unique subscription based storytelling service, where you get real letters mailed to you.  Each set of letters tells a single story and lasts about 3 months.  For only $25, you get letters in your mailbox from interesting characters, every other week.  Finally, there is a reason to open your mail.


How about a free sample?

Sure!  A number of our stories have free prequels we can email you.  You'll get three emails over the next week, telling the first part of those stories.  Once you find a story you like, you can pick up the story from there in your mail, or we can mail you those first letters as well.
