We got to talk to Bea and Leah from The Ripped Bodice, the all-romance all the time bookstore in Culver City, CA. We discuss how you get from a dream and some “janky math” to a successful kickstarter and a bookstore in less than a year. Plus, of course, books. Lots of books.
You can find the Ripped Bodice online at their website and on Twitter and Instagram and Facebook, and of course you can go to the actual store at 3806 Main St. in the heart of downtown Culver City. Fitzwilliam Waffles is on instagram as FitzwilliamWaffles.
