Dear Mr. Bear,
My name is Mike Lynch, and I have been a fan of science fiction since my youth. For the past few years I have channeled that enthusiasm into writing a science fiction novel of my own. After shopping the story around to different publishing houses, one of them wants to publish it. I was wondering if I could e-mail excerpts of my novel to you with the hope of getting a quote I can use to promote my book. I am not asking for much, just a sentence or two which conveys your feelings about the story that I can put on the cover. You can e-mail me back at this address with your reply.
Any help you can offer me in this regard is most appreciated.
