Success from Romance...Leah and Bea Koch

Leah and Bea Koch have opened the only exclusively romance bookstore in the United States and only for about $91,000 on Kickstarter!

The Chicago born sisters realized there was a massive gap in the book industry and coupled with their love of romance they decided to work together and opened The Ripped Bodice.

The Ripped Bodice features a vast and diverse selection of romance fiction. In addition to books, the store has a wide selection of gift items with a focus on supporting independent, female owned businesses.

The sisters joined us to talk about what makes a romance novel, how they got into the business and what is it they know about the industry that big box bookstores don't.

Listen below!

If you'd like to visit The Ripped Bodice (and you should, check out all the genres they carry!) here's their address in the city:

3806 Main St.

Culver City, CA 90232
