After 10 years of business, Cindy King Boettcher is celebrating her book business, in part, with a website.
Cindy's Books has published five illustrated children's books over the past decade, all concerning Aggie traditions. In addition, $70,000 in sales have been given back to Texas A&M.
"In one of my children's literature classes [at Texas A&M], the professor challenged us to write a twist on a traditional fairy tale. I have collected Cinderella stories from around the world so already knew the elements," said Boettcher in a press release.
Boettcher researched Aggie traditions and incorporated them into the tales.
"My books were intended for children, but they are a big hit with college kids," Boettcher said. "I sell many of my books through Clubs at the university. When they sell my books, I donate money to the Clubs who then.donate the money to scholarships."
"Anna Meagan: The Aggie Cinderella Story," "Whoop! An Aggie Football Weekend," "A is for Aggie: A Book of Traditions," "One, Two.Hullabaloo!" and "Happy's Special Doctor: Future Veterinarians" are the books published by Cindy's Books, each with illustrations of acutal students and campus activities.
