New book offers concise advice for choosing book titles

Posted February 28th @ 6:59 pm by Roger C. ParkerPrint

booktitletweetmidTitles sell books; my forthcoming book, #BOOK TITLE Tweet, offers 140 bite-sized ideas for creating compelling titles for articles, books, and events.

Designed to inspire by providing as many ideas as possible in a readable, non-technical format, this is the book that I’ve long wanted to write.

All books need titles, but, unfortunately, until now, there’s never been a simple guide outlining the characteristics of successful book titles, with hundreds of examples plus a process for choosing and testing book titles.

Writing to fit Twitter’s 140-character length added challenge and fun to the project. The 140-character limit forced a conciseness that makes this book the perfect companion for daily commutes, long trips, and reading in bed.
