DEAR SONY (Sir Howard Stringer), MICROSOFT (Mr. Bill Gates and Mr. Steve Balmer) APPLE (Mr. Steve Jobs) and AMAZON (Mr. Jeff Bezos):

I propose that your company would purchase one (1) million E-copies of my novel “7 COLORS” / Book 1 at a cost of:

(a) $1 per copy, plus

(b) A per copy ROYALTY of $1.50.

Your company would then sell my E-Book (“7 COLORS”/Book 1) for $5-$7 per copy.

Very truly yours,

P.S. Upon signing of my E-Book publishing contract with you I’d require a $150,000 advance with the remaining $850,000 to be paid to Renee Ashley Baker when the Final Draft is completed.
