Attempt at 'preview copy' of Dead Poems
Summary -- I emailed Reed Singleton to attempt to get a 'review copy' of the book of poems 'cause I'm an impatient little cuss.
Result -- No go. Details below, my real name has been replaced with infinitywpi.
My Email --
Webmaster: If you are not Mr. Singleton, please forward this on to
either he or his publisher.
Mr. Singleton: My name is infinitywpi, and I am a reviewer for my
town's newspaper. My community (Fargo, ND and Moorhead, MN) has an interest in writings like those in your book, and I feel a review would interest a lot of people around here in buying your book. Would it possible to obtain a copy for review before they go on sale, so that a review can be finished in time for your release date?

Mr. infinitywpi -
As you can imagine, I've been very busy trying to meet my deadline. I
haven't had much time to check my mail, but I do enjoy communicating
with potential customers. So I am sorry this e-mail is coming to you a
But I do want to say, as this is a self-published book, I only have a
few advanced copies, and they were already spoken for.
I thank you for your interest, and I hope you enjoy the book.
