As writers, we know that the title of our novel, short story or commentary has to capture the reader’s eye.  It’s vital that we give great thought to the title; it can make or break the success of the book.

But, here are some writers who just got it all wrong.

If my Poo ever speaks to me, I’m definitely getting the doctor to change my meds.

Why didn’t I see this on the Best Seller List?

The following writers had great titles, just the wrong names!

1. The Yellow River by I.P. Daily

2. The Numbers Game by Cal Q. Later

3. Under the Bleachers by Seymour Butts

4. Rusty Bed Springs by I.P. Freeley

5. Twenty Yards to the Outhouse by Willie Makit, illustrated by Betty Wont and published by Andy Dint

6. Spots on the Wall by Hugh Flung Poo

7. Falling Off a Cliff by Eileen Dover

8. The Complete Proctologist’s Handbook by Ben Dover

9. The Joys of Drinking by Al Coholic

10. My Life with Igor by Frank N. Stein

(Now, I was going write about the importance of having a good title.  Then, while researching, I found these…end of story!)

Hope you got a chuckle!

Love,

Cranky
