Cherry Lake Publishing, Sleeping Bear Press flourish in Ann Arbor

Amidst calls for the demise of the book, it's good to see a couple of Ann Arbor's presses are still hot.

Excerpt:

"Ben Mondloch is talking about the fierce nature of the book publishing business and bears.

It's all in a day's work for Mondloch, CEO of Cherry Lake Publishing, which he started in Ann Arbor four years ago to offer educational books, and Sleeping Bear Press, which he acquired in 2012 and sells children's books.

Though book publishers had a tough time in 2012 with the Internet and economy wreaking havoc, Mondloch saw his sales jump 25%.

Sleeping Bear Press currently has more than 400 titles with another 60 in development."
