Two business models for children's books at Small Business expo in Washington DC
The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Market held a pop-up exhibit in Washington DC Feb. 13 and 14.
At least two of the exhibits were from booksellers, of children’s books, which I personally do not offer.
One of these was “My Heritage Book” from Deandra Bufo Novak of Orlando Florida. She writes custom books for small children’s families. I have never actually been hired to custom write material for a client.
The other is a kind of book club “Subscribe to Literacy, “WellRead”, by Undra Duncan in New York, where children’s books are packaged for once a month shipments.
Daniel Lattier has an article about Amish romance novels in Intellectual Takeout. He notes that in the nineteenth century Amish culture was not yet anti-technology, but somehow made the determination that modern technology would fray community religious cohesion as technology developed.
