  1. To whom it may concern,

    I apologise for posting in your comments section, I could not find a contact e-mail.

    My name is Sarah Bryson and I work for the publishing Company MadeGlobal. We have recently published a book by Charlotte Booth entitled “The Pyramids in a Nutshell”.

    We are looking for several websites that would be willing to take part in an online book tour that I am putting together to help promote Charlotte’s book and the wonderful world of Egyptology. Charlotte has mentioned that she has worked with your website and would love for you to be part of the tour.

    The book tour would consist of Charlotte writing an article for your website related to her book and the Pyramids that you would be able to share with your community of readers. In addition to this there would also be a copy of Charlotte’s book for you to give away (you simply select the winner and send us their contact details and we will send the book out to them!) We feel this is a wonderful way not only to promote Charlotte’s new book but also to help promote your fantastic website by encouraging more visitors.

    If you would be interested please do e-mail me back at booktours@madeglobal.com

    Thank you for your time,
    Sarah Bryson
