I received this in my inbox the other day:
I work for a market research firm called New View Research and we’ve recently been pulled in to do an assignment for Barnes & Noble on romance novels. We are searching for people who love to read books in the romantic genre to participate in an editorial session for a new romance novel that is about to be released. The session is in San Francisco in October on either the 10th or the 11th. Those selected would be flown to San Francisco, with all expenses paid for a day and paid $100 for their time in the session. I would be so obliged if you could share this information with your readers as we are attempting to cast a broad net to recruit the most diverse group possible for the session. If anyone is interested they can contact me at email@example.com.
What we need from interested parties:
1) Background info: age, marital status, activities, hobbies, kids, etc.
2) How many romance novels you read a month
2) Your top 3 favorite authors
3) What your favorite titles are.
