I was reading the Publisher's Weekly article on the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act and thinking about the ramifications. Just how likely is it that all children's books have been banned as a side affect of a well-meaning product safety law? My own titles have been targeted to "Ages 12 and up" so I might be affected as well. Will all the books I have sitting on bookstore shelves be trashed come February to protect the store owner from ruinous law suits? Probably I should start the process of changing that little marketing blurb to "Ages 13 and up" just to be sure.
But what about real children's books? How many lawyers out there are advising their clients to play it safe and get rid of all those un-certified books?
This could be a bigger impact on book selling than the Thor ruling, unless something happens soon.
