I am a publisher with some really great books to sell. I saw your announcement in Publiher's Weekly about the bookseller's show you're having this summer, and I think it's a great idea. Count me in,folks! I would like to get some space to show my books. I thought it would be a neat thing if I could do some live airbrushing on T-shirts to help promote my hot new title, T-shirt Art. Before I gotinto publishing, I was an airbrush artist, and I could demonstrate my techniques. I've done hundreds of advertisting illustrations and have been a sign painter all my life, so I'll also be promoting my other book, hot off the presses, How to Make Money in the Sign Painting Business.
I will be starting my PR campaign about May 2000 with ads in PW and some art trade papers, so my books should be well known by the time the show comes in August. In case you would like to use my appearance as part of your publicity, I have enclosed a boigraphy and photo of myself.
P.S. Please let me know what it would costs for booth space as soon as possible, so I can figure out whether I can afford to attend. Being a new publisher is mighty expensive!

Since you have included the text of the letter, it appears you have already followed the three steps listed above to reach this point; however, I have several suggestions for improving the content of your piece. Working down the writing process steps listed, here are my suggestions:

1. Planning:
a. Publisher's Weekly is a major outlet for authors and publishers; therefore, you should be as specific as possible about who you are, what types of titles you have to offer, and how your presence will add to the overall quality of the show you are interested in attending.
b. Use a tone in your work that indicates a high-degree of professionalism, not one the reads as if you are a close friend. (The details ...
