My query letter to a bookstore in Asia--

I am a well-known Burmese-born writer, now residing in the USA.  I have won several awards, including being a Pew Finalist twice in Literature and my play Shaman, about a hpii dancer, was praised by renowned playwright Edward Albee.  I am currently converting it into a novel.  I have also won a Fulbright and a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Award.
Of my stories listed below, (cut and pasted into this email) Rider of Crocodiles is about a Thai man who was not killed but taken to Ava in 1767, based on a real story.  Dancing like a Peacock and Koel Bird are about immigrants on the Burma-Thai border.  All my books will appeal to a young adult audience which is internationally oriented.
You may order my books here on Amazon if you are interested in having them in your stores.
I have been to the main store and bought many books there,
Sincerely,
Kyi May Kaung
