Hi Kraig Becker,
 
My name is Don. I’m the Press Release PR Manager for YKS. I’d like to introduce you to YKS and talk to you about possibly cooperating.  
 
I happened to see your blog and was really impressed. It seems that you really enjoy showing off your sense of cutting-edge life tech, and that you like to do this with super-cool article.  
 
Here is a little bit about us: 
YKS was established in 2007, located in Shen Zhen, China.  We run a store on Amazon called Bsyexcellent which specializes in outdoor accessories.  
 
We’re inviting tech-savvy just like you to try our products for free. What we need is your pertinent article mentioning your experience about our product and service on your blog. Or we can cooperate in your way. Just tell me your ideal way of cooperating.
 
Well, let’s start with a popular item perfect for spring, a mini camping stove:
www.amazon.com/dp/B00PW7HL8A. It was released recently, and became one of our best sellers. Do you like it as well?  
 
Waiting for good news from you. :)  
Just email me at ykspressrelease@gmail.com. We’ll take it from there.  
 
Have a nice day!  
 
Best regards,
Don Chan
