How did a book on punctuation and grammar become an international bestseller? It had an attention-grabbing, buzz-building title. Discover how you can come up with your own Eats, Shoots and Leaves or Heís Just Not Into You so your book attracts interest from agents, publishers, readers, media and meeting planners.
Hello, Iím the author of the book ĎPOP! Stand Out in Any Crowdí and my name is Sam Horn. Would you like to know how to give your book the perfect title? Well follow Bonnie Raittís advice. She said ďLetís give them something to talk aboutĒ. How can you get people talking about your book? By coming up with a name that they havenít heard before.
How do you come up with a name they havenít heard before? Describe your book and take 10 words that you frequently use when explaining your book. Now take each word and run it though the alphabet, changing the sound of the first syllable to match the corresponding letter.
Want a quick example? I wrote a book about how to deal with difficult people without becoming one yourself. Letís see, thatís kind of like a a kung fu for the mind and mouth. Letís see kung fu, run it through the alphabet: un fu, bun fu, sun fu, done fu, yun fu; eventually get to tongue fu.
