    Operating as a division of Warehousing & Fulfillment Specialists, APG has provided full sales and distribution services to well over 500 publishers/authors since the late 1980s. One of the keys to our success has been limiting the growth in the number of publishers/authors we represent at any point in time. We feel that limiting the number of clients we represent helps to provide excellent service for each individual client. APG has an in-house sales team with over 100 years of experience in selling to the retail trade book market including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books a Million, Ingram and others. We utilize independent sales agents to reach the independent bookstores and we call on mass-market and specialty accounts as well. APG also sells books to the Christian book market.
