There are a lot of self published authors in this group and sometimes we need more ideas of how to get our name known and our books to sell.  This type of promotion works well for the traditionally…Continue

I love your suggestions, everyone.  Thank you so much for the input. 

What about, Connie, taking from your idea and saying Kaia's Journey or something along those lines?  That title shouldn't be taken.  Is that something that would catch your eye and want you to read it?  If I'm looking at self publishing, do I have to come up with the title or will someone help me with that - like the person who designs the cover?

Craig:  The book talks about the "storms of life" so I love your idea of Eye of the Storm, but I think it might be taken already.  That is definitely still in the running for me.  Pretty neat that you would suggest that not having read the book. 

And Sharon, I love the title "The Promise."  That might fit exactly with the book I'm writing now.

So many great ideas - thank you all so much!

Craig, I thought of Joy in the Morning...or Joy through the Mourning...but I think there's already a book with the first title, and the second may just be too much a play on words.

Cheri, spinning off the scripture Sharon mentioned it could be condensed to something like Joy Comes in the Morning.  Another title I was thinking about was Eye of the Storm.  But I agree your first title sounds like non-fiction, and even the second choice leans towards that as well.

Taking it One Day at a Time, God's Way rings non-fiction to me. I love Sharon's suggestion. You could also consider just her name, Kaia. Remember, don't worry too much about your title. You're publisher will probably change it away:)

Now all you have to do is start shopping it around. Get an agent, get published, then teach me:)

OMG...I meant Lulu, not zulu! LOL!
Comment by Sharon Singley on October 12, 2011 at 4:35pm
I have actually written several short/inspirational stories that I published on zulu (nothing big, I just wanted to get them out there). I would love to see them in a chicken soup type thing!

Tamara L Barney replied, but I just saw it! Sorry Tamara!

I'm a very busy woman, but not too busy to think. I love the thought of combining the stories for The Chicken Soup For the Soul with the fiction group.


Feedback please? What do you all think?

Thank you - I love that saying too.  Thanks for the input, Jace.

I vote for Sharon's suggestion of "The Promise".  How's that saying go ... "I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it."
