I researched how to self-publish a book
After I decided to publish the children's book I wrote, I went to the internet to research the process of self-publishing a book. Why self-publish, you ask? I actually researched "book publishing companies in Torrance" and didn't find any hits. I didn't know of anyone who owned or worked at a book publishing company that I could submit my book to and found out that it would take at least 6 months to a year to get a book published through a traditional publisher. Being the impatient person that I am, I was like, "I could do this myself." After doing some more digging, I decided that if I was going to self-publish this book anyway, I was going to do it right. So I filed papers to start my own book publishing business.
