It isn’t easy knowing what to post, two days before the official publication date of your second book. You have butterflies the size of bats whacking around in your tummy and you can’t settle down to any sensible activity. So here we have an extremely un-sensible post – corny book titles (from my English-teaching jokes collection). You have been warned…
Never judge a book by its author…
French Overpopulation Francis Crowded
Leo Tolstoy Warren Peace
Animal Illnesses Ann Thrax
Downpour! Wayne Dwops
Lewis Carroll Alison Wonderland
Look Younger Fay Slift
House Construction Bill Jerome Home
Unemployed Anita Job
There are more, but maybe these are enough…
We’ll finish off with an absolute classic by Tom Gault. I can relate to this because not many people in The Cold Cold Sea reached the final version with their first draft names. I inadvertently named a Very Nasty Person after a relative, so that had to be changed, and then the new name didn’t go with… etc etc etc.
Tomorrow, I’m guesting on a Glasgow Lifestyle blog courtesy of the Glasgowdragonfly… and the next day, it’s all systems go for The Cold Cold Sea!
