Been looking for a new title for the book. I wonder what happens when you type "Cancer Sucks" into Google? A lot of hits. Charities. T-Shirts. Bumper stickers. Ads. Interesting. Wonder if anyone has written a book with that title.
Amazon.com > Cancer sucks > search > books.
Wow are there a lot of books on Cancer. I mean, wow. Holy...Wow.
"Cancer Sucks" by ...
"Breast Cancer Husband."
"Chicken soup for the Soul: Cancer."
"I didn't order this pink ribbon."
"Help me survive:"
and on and on and on.
Which, should come as no surprise, but it does. I'm dumb that way. I guess that explains why a hundred query letters to agents resulted in so many rejections. Not that original a topic I guess.
Oh well, work continues. I know my writing will set my book apart. The current plan is to finish up Lena's suggestions, have Wendy read it and offer final suggestions, self publish it, have a proof sent to the house in Middlebury, hopefully approve it, order fifty copies for me, friends and the Vermont Bookstore and convince them to sell it in their store since so many people in Middlebury knew Marilyn and I. Then an ad campaign on Project Wonderful. A mass mailing to everyone in my address book advertising the book is finally done and available on Amazon in softcover and Kindle edition. Then the same on Facebook.
I'm thinking early August.
