What Some of
Said About Our Trade
for putting me in touch with the distributor you spoke with at the
show. We have a deal to put copies of the novels in two Portland Costco
Warehouse stores, and in the Eugene Costco. I'll do a book signing in
all three stores. If that goes well, and I'm confident that it will,
there is a great opportunity to expand into other Costco stores,
Wal-Mart and the big box book stores. It looks like the book show
exposure paid off."
and I have been truly blessed meeting you and Ingrid. You have
given us great tips and helped us out in this crazy book marketing
world. Thank you from the bottom our hearts
for all you have done. We look forward to continue our business
relationship with you."

to let you know that as a result of our follow-up contact on leads
received from the PLA Conference display in Portland, our book is being
added to the shelves of three out-of-state public libraries--in
Minnesota, Washington, and Idaho. And we expect more public library
requests for our book to follow. We'll be signing
some of the other NABE showcases happening later in the year."

fine, knowledgeable man. My books are generally exhibited at
