    @hnhammond - the fact that you have a doctor's involvement to substantiate your claim is key to the success of your book. Does your doctor want to publish a paper on it to share with his colleagues? (medical journal or something) That would help too. You want to be able to prove what's occurred.

    Just writing a book is one thing; you want people to read it -- and, most importantly, buy it --- too. You can always self publish but getting a publisher would mean more exposure to your book. I wonder if the AKC or another dog organization (what's that one that certifies Service Dogs?) has access to a publisher -- you know, through contract or something? Something to consider. E-books are another way. I heard a piece on NPR yesterday about novellas and other short books never making it to print and going straight to e-book -- maybe another route? Regardless, eventually you and your pup need to make appearances and pimp your book! How will Tilly do on a set with cameras and lights? Wouldn't that be fanTASTIC!!!???

    I think its fascinating and I myself read anything about EBs! You want to move beyond that niche market though! Maybe you could co-write it with an author already writing best selling books about dogs? Another route perhaps?

    Would you read a book about this? Do you know where I should look to go about publishing this sort of thing?
    First of all, that's incredibly amazing. I think something like this could really open the doors for a lot of people.

    You basically have 2 ways of publishing. You can find someone to publish it for you (you have less control over the end product, but you aren't paying) or you can self publish. (More expensive but you control everything.) I have a good friend who I worked for before I decided to start my own design biz, who actually designs the chicken soup for the soup books and can walk someone through the entire step of self publishing, and then he will design, lay out the book, and get you setup with a printer, etc. Pretty much the whole process if you choose the latter of the 2 publishing options. Let me know if you are interested and I can DM you the info.

    I think a book would be wonderful! If not a book.... then a blog with photos, weekly stories, ect. would be awesome too!

    Oh one last thing, I would personally love to publish anything you want to write! So if you exhaust other avenues, you always have English Bulldog News!

    What an amazing story you have to tell! I want to read it!
