Hi Steve and Uma,
My name is Justin Kramon, and my first novel, Finny, was
published by Random House in July. I just wanted to drop you a
note to see if your book club might be interested in reading it
and having me visit. Random House has recently printed a
number of copies specifically for reading groups considering
the book for their fall list. I'd be happy to send you a copy
(it's free), if you might consider it.
The book has gotten great reviews and has been featured in the
New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Financial Times, The
Baltimore Sun, and a number of other national and international
papers. You can read about the book and see the reviews at my
website, www.justinkramon.com, where you can also find the
reading group guide. The book is published in trade paper
original, making it affordable for clubs. (You can get it for
around $10 on Amazon.)
My novel went into a second printing after only two weeks on
the shelves, and I think book clubs have been a big reason for
that. I?ve gotten wonderful feedback from readers, and I
greatly appreciate the support I?ve gotten from book clubs. I?
ve also had a huge amount of fun visiting clubs on my tour. If
you?re interested in hearing about the experience of a book
club I visited recently, you can contact Samantha Allen at
[address removed]. I visited Samantha?s wonderful club
during a recent tour stop in Ohio.
If your club chose to read the book, I?d be thrilled to work
out a visit with you. It?s a lot of fun for me, and one of the
nicest ways for me to share the book with readers.
Please feel free to contact me at my email address,
[address removed], if you have any questions, or if you?d
like to schedule a visit.
Thanks so much for your time and consideration.
