Do you ever make a mistake? Like kind of a big one that requires you to EAT CROW?
I was cocky and confident in the title of my book for writers. P MS to a T: the Winning Formula for Writing Nonfiction Short Stories that Sell.
In fact, so confident that the P the MS and the T were so BIG, so PROMINENT, so OVERWHELMING that anyone who just happened to see it in that little one-inch square photo on Amazon would only see those four letters. And that was the mistake I made. As you can guess, and probably know from your own response, what’s the first thing a person thinks of when they see that? Yup…not the result I hoped for.
So I made a decision to eat crow. Time to change the title (a bit costly, but it could be done). If I was going to change it, what to change it to? Shorter would be good. The original title was too wordy. The P MS to a T would stay, but be less prominent.
The content of the book remains entirely the same. The only thing that changed was the cover. It’s live on Amazon. And it can still be found by inserting “pmstoat” or other such language like “writing nonfiction” or “writing true stories” in the search bar.
What do you think?
P.S. Eating crow isn’t too bad…it tastes like chicken. lol
Hugs to you all,
