Hey,

I recently wrote a book about ***** Homes and would love to get a copy to Bob Vila. Anyone know HOW to mail him something and actually have it *reach* him, rather than get tossed in the "circular file"?

Thanks.

Oh my goodness, I learned there's a dirty word on this forum. It's the name of a large merchandiser that once sold houses in a mail order catalog.

Let me try this again.

I wrote a book about BLANK mail order kit homes and I'd love to get a copy to Mr. Bob, rather than have it tossed over the proverbial transom.

Anyone have any idea how to get it to him and have it REALLY reach his desk?

Rosemary T.

Bob has done a whole project, 13 shows, on remodeling a Se*rs kit home. He has also visited more during the course of shows during Home Again. You can send the book to the website's address and we generally pass most items onto Bob. However putting it on his desk would not get him to read it nor give his opinion of the book. We get many unsolicited products, books and letters.
