APSS Spotlight -- The APSS Holiday Bookstore

Sell your book as a Holiday Gift – in the NEW APSS Bookstore. Now is the time for APSS members to support each other – by buying their books for Holiday gifts.  The APSS Bookstore was created to make it easy for you to buy other APSS members’ books – and for them to buy yours. See all the books available at http://bookapss.org/books/

   To place your book in the APSS bookstore, send a high-resolution cover image, a 50-word (maximum) description including the list price, the category in which it should be placed, and the link to your Amazon page (or website) to Kim@bookapss.org. Currently there is no charge for placing the first title, but $5 for each additional title. 

Special Sales Tip of the Day: December 4, 2020

“A caustic coworker could improve your creativity. Participants in a test creative session solved problems after hearing sarcastic phrases, like an insincere “I’m sorry.” They were three times more creative than a group hearing sincere messages. Sarcasm forces the brain to think abstractly, boosting innovation.” (Reader’s Digest). Yeah, right.
