Last night when in the wee small hours I finished a major edit to my first non-fiction book. I cracked the 50,000 word count, and I feel very excited.

But...

I still don't know what to call it.

The Top Ten Things Happy Grandparents Never Regret Doing: Developing Your Grandparenting Philosophy - I want to help grandparents be more than just babysitters. I want to empower them to build great relationships with their grandkids.

That's what I have so far.

And, I'm looking to market it to the big world.

I am going to set myself up as a top influencer, give presentations and write more -
I've made contact with a few publishing promo firms to get a cost, and of course, there's always Facebook advertising (I'm laughing on the inside as I type this!)

Any ideas?

@SusanDay

Call it simply, "Grandparenting."

Then add a subtitle that suits you ... think Tagline.

Consider asking people who you expect to purchase the book or those who inspired you for content.

Awesome, @SusanDay!

I'll let others help with your title but I'll jump ahead to the publishing and marketing...

Here's an excellent book you may find helpful (or you may already know all this stuff!)

And there's another good one for marketing your book on facebook which I will post as soon as I can find it.

@Rev Thanks.

I've been publishing on Kindle, and Smashwords, for years now but I appreciate the recommendation. There are so many books out ybete it's hard to know where to start.
