    "find/have a free digital/online copy of ..."

    How could I find/have a free digital/online copy of (book's name/title) by (author's name)?

    My intention is to ask a native speaker if she has a copy of a book and I need her to email it me. How could it be natural to construct that request, please?

    Do you have a soft copy of that that you could send me? Or send me a link to?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Could you send me a digital copy of [name of book] by [name of author]?
    Do you have a digital copy of [name of book] by [name of author] that you could send me?
    I would be very grateful if you could send me a digital copy of [name of book] by [name of author].
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
