We Interrupt This Blog Break.....

No, I'm not ready to start blogging again yet, because I'm really rolling along with my writing,(Yay! Finally!) but just wanted to share something that is really BIG....for me.

Some of you may remember my anxiety trying to think of THE RIGHT title for my memoir. Although I wasn't anywhere near being finished, it was extremely important to me to choose one. After I did, I felt I could focus better on writing.

In just the past couple of days, it came to me. I ran it by some writer friends yesterday, and then Lou, my publisher at High Hill Press. Everyone loved it! So......without further ado......my memoir's title is............



From Pigtails to Chin Hairs
A Memoir & More



What do you think? Any thoughts??

  16. Love it. And if time permits you could put the chin hairs in pig tails.

    I will most certainly read it when it comes out. But you knew that already.

  19. Love it! Hilarious. I know what you mean about searching for the perfect title. But each work is different. Sometimes you don't know exactly what you're trying to say till you find your title. Sometimes the title just leaps out at you after you write the last word. That's what makes each book an adventures...xojudi

  21. Free tweezers with books! Fabulous idea. Can they imprint the tweezers with your name? Better than bookmarks or pens.
