Understanding Publishing Paths

Publishing has never been more accessible to authors than it is today. Many writers decide to self-publish themselves on Amazon, others choose to partner with a literary agency, and still others continue to go the route of traditional publishing. But because there are so many publishing options, it’s easy to get lost in questions like: “Where do I upload my manuscript? How do I know the formatting is right? How does distribution work? Where can I get a decent cover? What’s the difference between DIY publishing and assisted publishing? How and where do I distribute online and around the country?”

We found this infographic from Aerogramme Writers’ Studio and want to pass it on so that you can clear up questions you have about today’s crazy, complex, publishing industry.

In this infographic, Artichoke Press falls under the “fully assisted” category. We will help you publish your finished book and work with you on design and editing for one solid price, and we will work with our writers until they are completely satisfied with their end product. For more info on our publishing prices, check out our Publishing information here.

We are happy to discuss pricing and publishing option, marketing opportunities, distribution options, or even just answer any questions you might have about any of the many fields of publishing, even if you are unsure of which path you will choose.

We look forward to hearing from you!

I Lost My Best Friend Today
Dealing with the Loss of a Beloved Pet
By Judy H. Wright

The Heartfelt Collection of Stories That Pet Lovers, Parents, Veterinarians, And Animal Communicators Are All Talking About

Do you view your pet as a member of your family, your closest friend, and constant companion? Our pets help us to be better people. They bring us a level of love that can never be replaced any more than their personality can be replaced. If you or someone you care about has pets, there will be a tremendous sense of loss when that pet dies or has to be euthanized. I wonder if you can relate to some experiences I have had…

  • Was the decision to euthanize your pet one of the hardest things you’ve ever done?
  • Do you have an old or terminally ill pet who you cannot stand the thought of losing?
  • Do you find yourself denying the inevitable or wondering how you will ever be able to handle the loss when they are gone?

“I Lost My Best Friend Today is a wonderful collection of personal stories, information, and quotations about the heartfelt subject of how deeply pets, and their passing, affect our lives. It touches a subject, which until recently, was not in mainstream consciousness. This wonderful book deals with the many and varied emotional aspects of the death and grieving process of our family pets. If you have loved and lost a pet, this book will aid you in your healing process. If you know someone who has loved and lost a pet, this book will help you to understand what he or she may be going through emotionally and mentally.”
– Patricia Skergan, D.C., Wholistic Chiropractic

  • Is your child struggling to understand the death of their pet?
  • Do you wish you could find the words to comfort a grieving friend or family member who lost a beloved pet, but you don’t know what to say to show your support without appearing to trivialize their pain?
  • Did the loss of your animal best friend trigger unhappy memories or unresolved conflicts of loss from years ago?
  • Did you find that you were more upset over losing a pet, than losing a parent or relative?

I know that pets are more than just animals… they are our closest friends, constant companions, and integral members of our family. Our family has always had pets who were important members of our “tribe.”

Our family has felt the depths of such a loss when we lost our family pet, a Cocker Spaniel named Taffy.

Taffy was a fence jumping, chicken chasing, stinky breathed, fur scratching, devoted member of our family. He held a special place in our heart, because he had saved our two-year-old son Andy’s life when he wandered off into the street.

One day while working in the house, I realized I could no longer hear giggles and barks coming from the yard. Running quickly I saw that both gates were still locked but both the baby and dog were both gone!

Panic stricken I looked all over our property and then started running up the block towards the busy street two blocks aw ay. Crying their names I heard a woman by the street yelling; “are you looking for a little blond haired boy and a blond haired dog?”

A woman who had rushed outside her business after seeing a small boy starting to go on the street and a dog trying to herd him back told us the story. She said that Taffy saved Andy’s life by continually getting in front of him so could not go forward into the speeding traffic. After the adventure, Taffy and Andy were inseparable and both of them spoiled rotten by the rest of the family.

Fast Forward to a Painful Family Decision…

Eventually the day came when, as a family, we agreed that Taffy could no longer go up and down stairs, was constantly incontinent and was in such pain that even patting her hurt her.

After a tearful goodbye from each of us, my husband Dwain, ever the strong silent hero of the group, wrapped her in a special blanket and took her to the vet for the final visit.

Our hearts were heavy that day. Our tears were plentiful. For once, the house was silent and everyone was grieving in their own unique and special way. Even Tiddles the cat was not his usual self.

But for all of us, Taffy was and is our hero. Not just because she jumped the fence to save Andy, but because she was an important and valuable member of our family. She not only brought protection, enjoyment, and companionship to all of us, but she also taught us about loyalty.

It was because of her examples of loyalty to us that we, individually and as a family group, have been more loyal friends and associates to others, human and animal.

I Lost My Best Friend Today – Dealing with the Loss of a Beloved Pet was a labor of love born from my desire to help other people who are struggling with this significant loss.
