There are lots of good books on the subject, as well as two
controlled-circulation periodicals (DM NEWS and Target Marketing). Herschell
Lewis, a highly regarded copywriter, is the author of at least two good books
on the subject. One of his on my own shelf is Direct Mail Copy that SELLS,
Prentice-Hall. Bob Bly is another author to look for. (He is the author of
several books, including The Perfect Sales Piece, Wiley.] Also books by Julian
Simon. My own efforts in this field are Great Promo Pieces and The Ditrect
Marketer's Work Book, both published by Wiley. - Herm
