    Dear Joanne,

    I hope this email finds you well. I could not find a way to email you directly so I am stalking you through your blog! Hope that is ok!

    I recently discovered your book, In Her Words, and I thought it would be a perfect fit for Bedside Reading.

    As a way of introduction, my friend, Jane Ubell-Meyer (who is a former film and TV producer) created a unique concept in book/author branding and word-of-mouth marketing – Bedside Reading. BedsideReading.com

    Simply put, we place books by the bedsides in luxury hotels (Waldorf Astoria, Mandarin Oriental, Fairmont, etc.) and in The Media.

    Books are provided by the author or publisher as a complimentary amenity to our 5-star hotel guests who are primarily high net-worth individuals– CEOs, leaders, decision-makers, and influencers.

    Our hotel partners are luxury brands who work with us to promote all of our books via their social media channels and in traditional media.

    Note: Not every book is accepted. We have a stringent approval process. All books are vetted and pre-approved by the hotel before inclusion.

    I would love to tell you more. Do you have any interest in setting up a call?

    Please let me know what you think!

    Kind Regards,
    Jennifer Blankfein
