Finally! I'm BIG IN JAPAN! Totally cool Japanese schoolgirls with orange hair and bizarre electronic gear with "Hello Kitty" logos will have to take a test on my profound words! I can live large! After agent fees, taxes and miscellaneous expenses, I anticipate having to pay $20 American Money to make the Big Bucks! Is it any wonder so many people aspire to be writers? Fame...ah...it keeps one warm at night...
How are you? I'm the Permissions Manager here at Lowenstein-Yost Associates and we've just received a request for a small excerpt of WHITE BOY SINGIN' THE BLUES to be featured in a booklet that is being distributed at St. Andrew's University, Japan. They will be distributing it for free to approximately 50,000 students, and they are offering to pay $100. I'll be delighted to accept on your behalf, as soon as I get your "OK".
I hope all is well, and please send along your contact information when you can.
Very best, [etc]
