Good rule of thumb: if the title you’ve come up with sounds more explanatory than catchy (and more importantly, is more than four or five words, max), it’s probably a better subtitle,“ advises Peter Bowerman.

In his third offering, The Well-Fed Self-Publisher: How to Turn One Book into a Full-Time Living (Fanove Publishing, 294 pages, softcover, $19.95, 0-9670598-6-0), Bowerman, whose books have been Writer’s Digest Book Club selections, provides publishing precepts for the Promethean publisher. When discussing marketing he writes: “Focus on marketing—hire out the rest”; the author explains that the time spent on other aspects costs more in the long run.

Fast-paced narration for novices.
