How to ask for a raise from an invisible boss?

I work as an independent contractor for a very large company. What's the best way to ask for a raise when I have never met my boss?

I interviewed over the phone and was set up with various clients whom I see weekly. All communication with the company is through email--basically I send them my monthly hours and that's it. My boss mentioned the possibility of a raise in a few months (I have been working there since February) if my clients gave me good reviews. I am reasonably sure that they have, and I wouldn't be asking for anything crazy ($25/hr instead of $20), but I am a total n00b to this.
So: how do I compose an email asking for a raise? Or should it be done over the phone? Or is it too soon to ask?
