Libboo, a MassVentures-backed company has developed an online service for authors to publish their own books. In April, “Chocrotes and the World without Question,” a Libboo-published book by a Somerville author, reached No. 1 on an Amazon.com list of new children’s releases.
In May, the company was one of at least four startups who got to TechStars Boston demo day with seed capital in hand.
