Comments: The Tail of Sellers

cd baby (http://www.cdbaby.com/) might be the sort of seller you mean.

and perhaps what seems to be a recent upswing in small t-shirt sellers.

Chelsea Green Publishing is a company that is selling extremely well on the long tail (as well as as at the head with our current bestseller Don't Think of an Elephant!). We are a niche publisher of books on sustainable living. Our key backlist how-to books on organic agriculture, green building, renewable energy, eco-cuisine, social entrenpreneurship, etc. are alive and growing on Amazon and other internet sites. We plan to offer more e-content and a subscription-based searchable database in the near future, along with e-books and other digital content. This is the future of book publishing -- meaningful content about authentic living -- as opposed to the mass market junk entertainment that is predominant in most mainstream bricks and morter retail outlets. So stay tuned.
