We are Ryan and Nicole and we are parents of 4. We wrote and self published our first children's book and it was extremely popular in our town. We submitted and submitted and were turned town over and over again. Why? Because we had our own illustrator and gave to charity!!!!
We were down to our last dollar before our tenacity started to pay off. After being turned down by Barnes and Noble repeatedly, we got in! After being laid off from my full time job, and being turned down over and over again for financing, we got it!
We started a blog to help people and answer questions on how we did it. We are just taking off and far from arriving, but we didn't give up where a million people would have and/or did.
