As noted in another thread, this is a letter I received in an e-mail. Of course, they are offering a book to buy with my poem in it. LOL
So, ya'll be on the lookout for it. Okay?
I saw you poem "Grinning Like A Little Smilie" on http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum83/HTML/002023.html and I thought it to be wonderful. I was wondering if I could use this poem in a book I'm currently publishing for a girl that I'm dating. I unfortuantly can't pay you any royalties and since I use a print-on-demand publisher where I have to pay for my own copy of the book, I can't even give you a free copy. I'm only doing this for the girl I'm dating, but the book will be available to buy via cafepress if your interested. The book will also get an ISBN# since it's free to get one here in Sweden, but it will only be sold on the internetsite and the only people who will know about it are probably the poemauthors and their friends and family. The book will cost about $15-$20 and will be a perfectly bound book.
You will of course keep the copright of your poem, you will only give me the
right to publish it in this book.
If your interested please let me know what you want to be the title of the poem
and what you want to use as alias/name on the poem.
Sorry about my english, it's not my best language.
Best regards Marcus Johansson
