Dear Mr. Lee,
You were kind enough to read a copy of my first novel, Doctor Janeway's Plague (ISBN: 0-595-09327-2) which I sent
you a few months back. I hope you enjoyed it, and am writing to ask whether you would consider penning a short "blurb" which I could add to my press release and site listing for the book at Amazon (both US and UK sites). It's my first novel and obviously a positive comment from a reader of your stature would help me as I market this.
