So, I wrote a book

April 25, 2011


I’ve been writing on this little website here for just over a year, and through that time I have composed many sentences about things essential to every single person that we should all read and pay money for. So, I put a lot of my posts and tweets together into a book.

The book is almost finished. All that is left is a couple of sketches and the cover from the very talented artist creating such things. As soon as that stuff is in, I’m publishing it through and they’ll make an Amazon page for it.

I’m hoping it’ll be good to go in the next couple of weeks.

However, I’ve hit a snag like a shortstop.

I don’t know what to title it.

Here are my ideas thus far:

Real Talk

Place Cup Here (because it’ll prob be a coffee table/toilet reading book)

True Stories I Made Up

I’m not super committed to any of them so I’m taking suggestions.

If you can think of a funny and/or random title, please let me know in the comments. Or, if you like one of the ones I was using, let me know that too.

If you like one of the ones in the comments, click “like”.

If I use your title, you get a free copy of the book signed by my wife, and whatever cash I currently have in my wallet.

Help a brotha out, oh yeah, I’m your brother.

Any suggestions?

    “Place Cup Here” is a valid name for a coffee table book…but if you think it is going to be toilet reading and you call it place cup here…that brings a different element into the title that I am not sure you are going for! ;)

    As for a title, I like “True Stories I Made Up”
    …or how about “Mohawk for a Day”

    What’s your favorite blog post you’ve ever written?

    I say use that title, and then the subtitle “True Stories I Made Up”.

    For instance: “My First Drug Deal – True Stories I Made Up”, by Sir Tyler Tarver.

    Congrats! Looking forward to getting my autographed copy.

    When I was an adolescent, I thought I was going to be a famous singer. I decided to name my first album “Journal Jottings.” Moral of the story: I was kind of lame.

    Brain Bacon is super promising.

    My vote was totally True Stories I Made Up until it actually existed. Silly Tosh.
