And we have a winner for the contest to name Josh’s book….. drum roll please…… (Snoop? A bit louder.) brrrrrrrrmmmmm, brummmm, brummmmmm!
Thanks you so much to all of you for playing “Name Josh’s Book!” I feel really fortunate to have the collective brain of such a fun & creative group working on titling my book. There were so many great titles and kind messages. I wish it was like Little League and that everyone could get an award (even if it was the lame one I always got like “best teammate!”), but I’m just going to man up and pick a winner. The name of the book might end up being something totally different of course, but it was great to have such fun suggestions and I did share the winner with my editor.
So the winner is Traci at—email hidden to protect her identity–I don’t think I got a last name from you, Traci.
Several of you actually came up with the same main title, which I like, but she added a clever subtitle. It sort of went against my advice to steer clear of fat puns, but Traci did it in a subtle and clever way. So the winning title is: SHAFTED: A LARGELY SOLVED MYSTERY. Intriguing, no? I think so.
So Traci, please send me some writing & I’ll do my best to give a helpful critique!
