Subtitles and Book Jackets

Images While I am still wrestling with revisions on the book, the rest of the process keeps moving down the pipeline. I think I mentioned that my editor didn't like my original title - "Oedipus Wrecks." Nor did she like the subtitle, which was something along the lines of "How Moms Are Pushed Away From Their Sons And Why They Should Push Back." She thought it was too aggressive.

The book has been retitled "Mothers and Sons" but neither one of us can come up with a good subtitle. It needs to be pithy and capture the essence of the book. I'm open to all suggestions, folks. Evidently, we need to decide quickly, because it is time for the designers to start working on the book jacket to show to sales.

The whole thing is just amazing to me, because I've nurtured this project for years, and it now has a life of its own. It's really going to happen.
