I've been hired as a subcontractor for a PC training company and got my first appointment next week. Hopefully this should bring in a regular income.
Also, when I went into town with my son to check the local cash-for-goods shops and pawnbrokers, we found a bike shop that can repair the two bikes sitting in my ex-wife's shed for a reasonable price. Not only that, they could do it that day instead of having to wait two weeks, which is what the other bike shop said.
In short, my eldest has a bike (awaiting a new lock for it), and my middle son will have one too in the next few days.
Book titles: what a nuisance they are. You get it wrong and no one buys the book. Get it right and...it won't make much difference. The title gets people to pick it up, the blurb gets people interested enough to buy it.
The title, in effect, is the neon sign outside the shop. And it's not just the title that counts, but how it's displayed on the spine and cover. Grey on black won't get much notice, neon blue on bright yellow will get it noticed, cause headaches in normal people and result in you being sued.
The book I'm reissuing was originally called A Stitch In Time. At the moment it's being changed to Not Again. BUT, what I'd like is some input on the possible titles I'm working on/with, so here's the list.
- On No, Not Again
- Not Again
- Tempers Fugit (yes, the misspelling of Tempers is deliberate)
- The Good, The Angry and The Innocent
Let me know what you think. I'll give some blurbs next week for a vote too.
Until Friday, have a good time and enjoy what you do.
