So. In my quest for entertaining books to review for you here, I started on a hunt for Kendra Wilkinson’s book. I thought it would be perfect for a light, summertime review. And some, you know, snark. But my library system doesn’t have it anywhere! I’m not about to shell out hard earned dollars for the new, hardcover book so I decided to get in touch with Kendra’s “people” to see about getting a free copy. I went to Kendra’s blog and found a contact email for her agent and fired off the email you see below. Will he respond? We shall see. And I shall tell you everything!
My name is Rebekah and I am the author of the popular mommy blog www.mom-in-a-million.com. In addition to discussing my life as a working mother in the DC area, I also talk a lot about pop culture and celebrities and I review books. I would love to read and review Kendra Wilkinson’s new book Sliding Into Home for my blog and my readers have said they’d love to read my take on it.
Because I am a woman on the budget, paying out of pocket for a hardcover book is not a viable expense for me, particularly since my blog is not a money making venture but rather a labor of love. Kendra, I’m sure would understand that, seeing as how she is also a mother to a young son on a budget. Although her budget is much, much bigger than mine so she can probably spring for a hard-cover book whenever she wants to without wondering if that will mean she can’t afford to fill her gas tank that week. But that’s not the point. The point is Kendra is a mom, I’m also a mom. Kendra is rich, I am not. So, Kendra could theoretically afford to give me a free copy of her book because it wouldn’t cut into her bottom line as much as me buying her book would cut into my bottom line. You see what I’m saying, Brian?
I should also mention that I was a HUGE fan of the Girls Next Door when Kendra was on it with Bridget and Holly. After they all left? Pfft. That show got so boring. It was all about Kendra, Bridget and Holly. I haven’t watched Kendra’s new show because, like I said, I’m a working mom without a whole lot of spare time and I can’t remember when her show is on, to tell the truth. I suppose I could set it up as a series recording on my DVR but there’s so much space being held up on my DVR by the World Cup matches my husband won’t delete that I don’t dare add another program into the mix.
See! That’s something else Kendra would totally get about me: her husband is into sports too! She should totally give me a copy of her book.
Anyway, I’ve taken up enough of your valuable time with this email. If you could ask Kendra about getting me a free copy of her book (or ask her publisher, literary agent, publicist, or personal assistant), that would be super. And you, or whoever, can get back to me directly. I don’t have “people” like Kendra does although I would LOVE a literary agent who could help me get a book deal. So, if you talk to Kendra’s literary agent, let him or her know that I’m taking offers for representation. I’m really funny as hell and incredibly prolific. I churn out tons of content every week and that’s for free. If I had advance money on the line? I’d be a writing machine.
Thanks for you time and I look forward to your response.
