Synopsis

Climb Out of the Cubicle is Amber’s story about quitting her life to travel the world. Even after she honorably served in the military, graduated from college, earning a prestigious government job everyone envied, and getting accepted into The Johns Hopkins University for grad school, Amber longed for something more untraditional. So, she became a “digital nomad,” someone who travels the world while running their businesses from their laptop. Two years in, Amber had a mental breakdown. She moved back to her hometown and figured out life all over again.

Similar titles

  • You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero (Perseus Books, 2013) Sincero approaches self-help with humor, personal stories, and encouragement. Her stories show you that you, too, can make changes in your life, even when it’s messy. Climb Out of The Cubicle uses many of these same techniques, most focusing on anecdotes and humor to show the reader my personal journey of personal development via making bold changes in my life.
  • The Crossroads of Should and Must by Elle Luna (Workman Publishing Company, 2015) Luna expresses her creativity through art and design. While I won’t be using handmade sketches in my book, thematically, both Climb Out of The Cubicle and Luna’s book align. There are two choices to make: either you continue down the road of what you’ve been doing your whole life and following society’s expectation, or you create a path and follow your gut.

Audience

This book is targeted towards millennials and Gen-Xers who have done “all the right things:” went to college, got a job, and waited to have the happiness and fulfillment promised in childhood and still want to make a change in their lives.

Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
