THE ALASKA BOOK HAS A NAME!

THE ALASKA BOOK HAS A NAME!

It has taken me forever and a day to come up with a name for the Alaska book and today it hit me – really it hit H. He’s been editing for me this week. I’ve hidden all the red pens in the house. The black scribble is hard enough to look at!

Earlier today as we were talking over lunch, I was complaining that no one was taking an interest in helping name this book – my kids. They were almost ignoring my texts on the subject. I couldn’t call it The Alaska Book forever. He looked at me and rattled off a name. “That’s it! That’s perfect!” I said.

After a little tweaking, here it is!

COFFEE-DRUNK OR BLIND

An Alaskan Homesteading Adventure 

Now granted, you probably won’t understand the concept of this title – until you read the book…so I guess you will have to read the book.

Anyway, I’m excited! One step closer to publishing. Now I can at least plan out my book cover while H is brandishing that red black pen.

  1. Definitely an intriguing title there. And to me, Alaska’s an intriguing place. So maybe you’ve got the right combination!

  5. I like it. Sorry I never responded but when you’re trying to keep track of three kids in Disneyland answering your mother’s texts aren’t a priority. Haha!
