Greetings, friends.  The manuscript for my new book is making the rounds of beta-readers. I am collecting information for the cover designer who asked me to pose a question to you.  Ready?

That’s it!  If you’d like to provide the production team (and me) with a little more support, please  use the comments to add a few words about why you voted the way you did.  Thanks!


Update: Thank you all for your helpful feedback. We went back to the drawing board. The adjusted title is undergoing a “mini-poll” over on my Facebook page.  (Sorry for any inconvenience.)

  1. I tried to post yesterday – I think just – Learning to Love That Thing in Your Head – is great! I would definitely pick up this book and peruse.

  2. Too long and clincal –

  3. I agree with Bonnie, too long and the subtitle didn’t resonate with me but I love the Innner Critic Advantage – nice juxtaposition of terms that gives me pause for thought!

  4. I agree with Bonnie about the subtitle. I know it is good to have one, so I am not bothered by the length of it but by “that thing.” Not a very loving way to refer to it, right?

  5. The Inner Critic Advantage: Learning to Love That Thing in Your Head is way too long. I would go with Learning to Love That Thing in Your Head. I would definitely pick up that book and investigate!

  6. So, this: Any writing that helps me make peace with something I’m resisting or feeling badly about is a valuable tool for me.

    Hope that helps!

  7. I personally don’t like long titles or titles that make me have to think. How about “Learn to Love Your Inner Critic”? No thinking required. I think I may be in the minority, so take it for what it’s worth. I think your What Kids Need to Succeed is a great title.
    Congrats and enjoy the process.

  8. Title too long and I had to ‘think’ about the wording “Love that Thing in your Head”… I would stop the title at the ‘Inner Critic Advantage’. No need to go further with the title. It is self explanatory. Best of success to you as you head into publishing!
