Texas Sisters Press, LLC is founded by, you guessed it, two sisters from Texas! LM Mann and C.J. Peterson are the founders of this publishing company. It has since reverted back to C.J. and her husband.
The sisters formed this press for a couple reasons. The main reason was that they are in it to give authors a fair shot at publishing. They firmly believe in the theory that "we are all in this together."
Another reason is to put out quality books for readers. The experience of getting lost in a book is lacking in today's society. So, they put out books to spark the imagination for readers of all ages to enjoy!
