Patsy Andersen wrote the following in an EPE-fanclub newsletter:
"I am very sad that we have been notified that two of the Christmas CDs that we made especially for the fan club presidents, are for sale(already) on e-bay. They haven't been out a week yet and already the appreciation for them is in monetary value. There is a lot of work and stress involved in the production of our gift to you, and to know that some see only 'money' in this gift is very disappointing.
Naturally, after they are received, they are yours. I know Ms. Manners says that recycling gifts is a no-no; I wondered what she would think of selling them. And the sad thing is that we know who the sellers are. Oh well, we may have to re-think the CDs for next year. It is sad that the actions of a few can effect so many."
