Children's Book Success Story

Whew! That was quite a trip today.
Panzer took a leisurely trip out into the Catosphere today. While our bad boy was tootling around out there, he made a stop at The Guardian site. He stumbled onto a post about an indie success story.

According to a post by Alison Flood, the indie children's book The Little Girl (or Boy) Who Lost Her (or His) Name has sold 500,000 copies and sales are still going strong.  David Cadji-Newby and three others founded the Lost My Name publishing company in 2012 for the sole purpose of publishing the book. Sales were slow to begin with. Then, last year they went on the Dragon's Den show where they secured an investment. Sales took off.

Panzer says, "Sounds like Dragon's Den is better than Kickstarter."
