“Thank you very much for your call this morning. I so appreciated being the recipient of the APSS Sweepstakes winner this month and to have the opportunity of talking with you. The suggestions for possible places to market my books filled up the front and back of my sheet. You certainly were generous with your time and information. Being a member of APSS has many benefits besides this opportunity, such as discounts and services from many companies. I think everybody that sells books should be aware of special sales opportunities through Brian and APSS and use it in their marketing plan. With your helpful research and information, I now have more tools with which to expand my reach in special sales. It was good talking to you.”
