Sent followup email to Liz
7/11/23 Reply from Liz: Lee,I did not personally see a copy of this book and need to confirm with one more manager, but am not sure the shop ever received it. I would be interested in looking at a copy and think it may fit in our shop! Right now, I am not looking to place any orders for new vendors, but as we enter Spring '24 I will reach out should we be looking to add more books to our product mix.
7/11/23 Replied to Liz that I would follow up next spring. and resend book if I need to.
7/12/23 Reply from Liz: Hey Lee, That address is actually no longer correct so I imagine that is why we never received it. Our current address is 239 N Court St, Fayetteville, WV 25840. I look forward to seeing your illustrations and writing, and have plans to put a small section of books at our resort location come next Spring. Yours seems like it would fit great! Best, Liz

In calling today I found out that Jacqui was no longer employed when I followed today, and hence my email to you.
My book had been approved for sale last year by Eastern National (I am a registered Eastern National vendor #8110 -Lee Pantas) in the Cumberland Gap stores and was placed on the ordering list in March 2023. When she and I last talked in May, she was waiting on an order and expected it soon. Now that she is no longer involved, my hope is that you will advise me as to what I need to do, if anything, to get the order sent.
6/1/23 Called Aimee on cell. On leave, told me to call next week
6/15/23 Talked to Aimee. Got my email. Checked and book is in system to be ordered. They order once a month. So, hopefully I will get an order soon.
8/21/23 Talked to Aimee. Somewhat curt. Mentioned book is in New River Gorge. When I asked about Cumberland Gap she said don't bother calling again, we will let you know when we order. Frustrating. Wait a year.

7/24/22 Email Thank you for checking in Lee, Iím sorry to have missed your calls, I looked through our 2019 records and see that some of our busiest sites kept multiple copies on hand throughout the season then typically sold 1 unit monthly or intermittently. Unfortunately that has led to a competitive disadvantage for purchasing when budgets and display space are limited. The book is dear to my heart and your art is so soulful, Iím sorry not to have better news. Karen

8/29/22 Reply from Amy: Hello Lee, Yes, we did receive the copy of your book, thank you so much! We are excited to use this book with our educational programming. At this time our Gift Shop is not carrying books. As you may know, purchasing trends and the COVID pandemic took a toll of our ability to stock and sell items. Our shop is now mainly snacks and a few stuffed animals. If we do get back to a point of being able to sell educational materials and books again, we will be sure to reach out. Thank you, Amy

Reply from Julie: Good afternoon! I got a message that you tried to reach me a few times this week. I apologize, this is an extremely busy time of the year at the park and I have been in and out of the office. I received a copy of the book you sent, and you are a very talented illustrator. I will keep this book option in mind moving forward. Right now, in our very small gift shop, I have no more room for books. Thank you so much for reaching out and sharing your work. I will be in touch should we decide to place an order.

8/25/22 Unable to carry it this year -end of season and gift shop inventory full up. Got book, loves it and perfect fit for their gift shop. Follow up in March for definite order.
Talked to Josiah. Boses won't let him add any new vendors this year. He is frustrated but powerless. Wants to sell my book. Agreed I would check next spring

Frances Figart. Creative Director Works remotely and only with GSM internal publications
11/6/23 Email from Dawn: Frances Figart, our Creative Services Director, let me know you had reached out to her about your book. Your book is still under review and as stated in the email below it may be January before that decision is made. Please reach out to me if you have any questions either for myself or NPS. Frances does not deal with publications that are not produced by GSMA, she strictly works with publications that GSMA is publishing. If you reach out to her she will direct your correspondence to me. As soon as a decision has been made I will reach back out to you.
11/7/23  Replied to Frances, Mentioned I was only asking about ranger advise.

I did receive your book and both the artwork, and the information within, are incredible. It is easy to see why it is available in so many gift shops throughout the region. I regrettably will not be able to order any copies at this time but I will certainly keep your contact information handy should the upcoming fiscal budget afford me the opportunity to purchase some books. I sincerely thank you for your interest in including Kincaid Lake State Park in such an incredible opportunity and I wish you the very best of luck in your endeavors moving forward.

Reply from Danielle: I enjoyed your book; however, Newman Wetlands Center is not purchasing any gift shop items now or in the foreseeable future.

It has many animals that are inside our nature center which is really rareÖbecause we have sugar gliders which are very similar to the northern flying squirrel! I was impressed! I will know here in the next couple weeks whether I have any money left to order some on this yearís budget. In July we get new budget money and I do plan to order some books for our resale items!! Thank you for touching base and I hope to be placing an order in the coming months.

And Iím fully aware your cards have sold through the years. When I write the order, I will only be purchasing the Single Brothers, Winkler, and Home Church cards. We are not currently using the Tavern building with no plans for it being opening in the near future or beyond, so that card is no longer relevant.

Centralized Buying System
304-558-2764 To reach Jessica's office. Tourism office for all state parks.

Their new centralized buying system allows for parks to buy some items on their own, others by her but all purchases are coordinated through her. She checks parks and orders as needed, as well as gets the yearly Inventory Status spreadsheet I send her in April.
50% Discount for all orders regardless of size
WFs: 4/18/23: 51 8/14/23 Sent reorder email to Jessica listing 8 parks plus Little Beaver
8/22/23 Reply from Jessica: Thank you for reaching out and providing this information. Because of the time of year we are not adding any more products to our 2023 year for the time being. All parks from the previous order are in stock. If we are in need then I will reach out directly. As for the 2024 years product mix I will be placing orders between November - January depending on the type of item.

Sent email to Jessica: Is it helpful for me to call stores and check on inventory in early January? Reply:
No need. I have access to everyone's inventory at all times. At that time i will be looking at their entire library and what has been selling over the past couple years. Thank you for inquiry I do appreciate it.

7/20/23 Reply from Katie: Hi, Lee. Thanks for reaching out. Weíre looking at a refresh of the Nature Center next fiscal year, and merchandise is a part of the conversation. We have a very small facility (2,500 square feet for the lobby, classroom, two offices and restrooms), so all space is at a premium (even 8.5 square inches, which I love that you have calculated) and we havenít found much success with selling our branded items. In short, we need to determine if weíre the kind of place that really needs to sell merch.
Check in 2026 to see if things have changed. Sold book to Katie for staff in July 2023

7/25/22 Reply: Thank you for checking in Lee, Iím sorry to have missed your calls,I looked through our 2019 records and see that some of our busiest sites kept multiple copies on hand throughout the season then typically sold 1 unit monthly or intermittently. Unfortunately that has led to a competitive disadvantage for purchasing when budgets and display space are limited. The book is dear to my heart and your art is so soulful, Iím sorry not to have better news.Karen

  1/4/21 Talked to Kerri Conrad, Very nice girl. They are thinking of expanding their online store to include other items rather than T shirts. Really loved my book. Sent her WFs as well as email with basic information. Mentioned selling my book at any of their events, like I did at the WNC Nature Center
2/1/21 Kerri set up my book in their online newsletter. I established separate webpage for book, and paypal link to purchase. $5 back to AWR for every copy ordered.
7/21/21 Response to Kerri after my email about drop in sales: Kerri: I certainly can supply you with images to use, and you could easily extract the fun facts you wish to use from my book pages. So let me know and I will send you the images in batches of 5 each via email. (about 30 in all). However, it occurred to me that you might still include the ad or a smaller version in each e-newsletter. With a membership of 30,000 plus, which I think I read somewhere, new people will always read the ad for a long time to come, and it will also, more importantly constantly remind people how easy it is to get the book while supporting AWR when their child or some other kidís birthday or Christmas rolls around.
