Dear Book Blogger,
I am a longtime blogger (www.20prospect.com just pretend you’ve heard of it) and first time novelist who is in desperate need of validation looking to promote my book. Like all Indie authors I am driving my Facebook friends, and blog followers crazy by talking about it all the time. To help give them all a well deserved break from my endless spamming I am now reaching out to book club bloggers and spamming them instead. I hope you don’t mind.
Anyway, what I’d like to ask you is “would you be willing to accept a free copy of my book to:
a.) read at your leisure
b.) mention on your blog if you like it
c.) use as a coaster for your coffee cup
d.) point and laugh at behind my back. (Or to my face for that matter)
I am not sure if you would consider an independent author for review, but I thought I would ask the question. While the book is self published, I used a free lance editor so the grammar is gooder than most self published works. The book is called: Box-Shaped Heart and it is a fictional retelling of a famous murder/scandal from the 1880’s. My Mom is very proud of it.
Here is a link to the book’s website:
here is link to an article about the book in a real newspaper:
and finally here is a picture of my dogs using their puppy dog eyes to ask you to review my book.
Seriously, how could you say no to them?
So I would love to send you either a hard copy of the book, or an electronic copy to look through, with the hope that you would take a moment of your valuable time to look at it before pointing and laughing. Please let me know if you are interested.
Mr. 20 Prospect
