Association of American Publishers
It's Book Business Friday. As picture book writers, some aspects of the publishing business are more important to us than others. But sometimes it's good to take the broad view the industry. That's why today we're taking a little look at the trade organization for publishers, the Association of American Publishers. This industry group focuses on the concerns of the companies who publish our books. They deal especially with intellectual property, technology, freedom to publish and read issues, and laws. We should take a few minutes to acquaint ourselves with the AAP through their website here. It's a business and we're in it.
