Synopsis

I was 23 years old when I planned my first funeral for my 23 year old boyfriend. In one moment, Gus was dead and each one of us were stripped away from our identity as a mother, father, sister, best friend and cousin.
In one decision, I was no longer a girlfriend, and my perceived vision of being a wife to Gus and a mother to our children, was no longer a possibility. 

Grief is a long and, at times, very dark and lonely journey. Once you go through experiences of heartache and pain, there is no turning back the clock and trying to forget. Somehow, before we could even come to terms with it ourselves, we have formed calluses on our hearts and negative belief-systems in our minds. Instead of trying to forget, I learned to remember. I learned to find meaning even when the world appeared to turn its back on me.

The Other Side is a journey of piecing my life back together and finding purpose in life from growing through pain. This story is for anyone who may feel like there is no other side to loss and grief. There is, I made it, and I know you can too. 

This book aims to raise awareness for suicide prevention, speak up and educate about mental health and demonstrate the power of resilience in an often-tough modern day world. I hope this journey together helps you to reflect on your own story and guide you along the way to a better tomorrow. Thank-you for embarking on this wonderful life with me.

Too many beautifully written books are rejected on a regular basis because the submitting author doesn’t have a strong enough author platform.

The barriers for authors are getting higher and the publishing industry less discerning and more unscrupulous.

By operating a hybrid publishing model, Cranthorpe Millner can invite authors to publish with us based on the merit of the manuscript alone.

Atmosphere Press logo 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.
