    Im in a competition type of program. My book submission
    accepted for possible contract and publishing. I am running against select authors to gain up to 5000 public votes,

    My book in short is for my citizens of my hometown Huntington Park California. Based on the history of the Warner Theatre, and the history of Hollywoods affiliations with our city Huntington Park.
    Both subjects are joined together and date back to the early 1900s
