Let’s dive in!
Here are some more honest review requests done right:
“I wanted to reach out and make sure that … was on your radar.”
This email began with a greeting and then a wonderful little note about the holiday the day before.
Next, Ashley wrote that she wanted to make sure this particular book was on my radar. As this was indeed in my wheelhouse, I was thrilled that she was reaching out to tell me about it!
The blurb about the book was awesome and totally interested me.
Next up, there was an offer and then a note before the signature. And check out that signature… “Tea Addict.” When I saw that, I immediately thought, “Ashley is my kind of person!”
I emailed Ashley back immediately.
When I received this email from Rook, I was equally thrilled and embarrassed. Rook had sent me another book that I hadn’t yet had the chance to read, but still had on my list! I just needed the time to get to it.
This email is on this list because of how wonderfully personalized it was! I really enjoy when people that I am working with take the time to get to know me and convey that when emailing! How kind of him to discuss the weather! Winter was certainly in full force when he emailed over.
I also really appreciated the amount of detail that Rook added so I could learn more about the book and what his request was.
I emailed back and let him know that I’d love to give the book a read!
“Thank you for your time and kind attention.”
Ken Hicks is an author that, as you can see, I have worked with in this past.
I want to note that I enjoyed the first book Ken sent me so much, that when I saw his name in my inbox I got really excited!
But I really loved this email because he took the time to remind me of the title of the book that I had read and reviewed as well as what my rating was in case I had forgotten! I thought that this was so thoughtful!
And of course, that closing is so wonderfully polite. Of course I emailed Ken back ASAP!
Thanks for reading!
