Book Think Tank

book think tank

I’m looking for a few creative minds to make up a book think tank.

I’m glad you stopped by!  I need some help from creative souls who can gently support me through the terrifying process of writing a book proposal.  I can’t promise fame, fortune or even money for your participation–just the satisfaction of helping a fellow writer in need of some creative community.  In return, I’m always happy to help YOU out with your book think tank needs!

According to the experts, a book needs an awesome title.  I’ve come up with some ideas, but I’d love to have you join me in the brainstorming.  The goals for the title are 1) It captures the attention 2) It doesn’t give away what the problem is (the book is about our adolescent daughter’s discovery that she had bipolar disorder–and since mental illnesses still carry a stigma, we don’t want to just come out and say ‘This is a book about mental illness.’ 3) Readers understand that the story is told from the perspective of both mother and daughters.

First of all, could you take a moment to take this poll?

Second, if you could sign up for the ‘Book Think Tank’ over there on the right, I’ll be able to send you information about my progress in writing both the proposal and the book.

Some of you may have already read the series,that we’re basing the book on, and that’s why you’re here. Others might be new to the whole concept. If you missed the series, take some time to read through it, for it serves as the skeleton of the book. As you read, jot down any questions you might have and list other information would you would find useful.

You can leave a comment with your ideas or questions, or email me at anita@blessedbutstressed.com. Thank you so much for your willingness to help out–even if all you do is take the book title poll, you’ve helped me out immensely!

  • I’ve never written a book proposal, but I was curious why you wouldn’t want to point out that the book is about bipolar disorder? If someone is looking up a book to buy about being bipolar or living with someone who is bipolar, I would think that if you had it in the title somehow, it would be easier to find? I love The Unquiet Mind. That’s a great title, but you could add something like “The Unquiet Mind: A Mother and Daughter’s Painful Journey with Bipolar Disorder”? Or something like that. I will be praying for the Holy Spirit to give you the title that will speak to readers that need this book! May God bless you on this exciting and very scary journey!! You can do this through Him who strengthens you!
