Side Trip: How to Write a Non-Fiction Book Proposal – Part 15

Alternate Titles and Subtitles

If you have ideas for alternative titles for your book, you can list them here.

If you have ideas for other subtitles from what you put on this proposal, you can list them.

You may not get to keep your title. Publishers have marketing committees that brainstorm titles that will catch attention and sell the book. So your title may change before publication and it's possible you won't have anything to say about it. However, you should put the best, catchiest, most wonderful title on your book that you can possibly think of in order to sell it to the editor. So if you come up with more than one and don't know which to use, put your favorite on your proposal and list the others here. Your publisher will appreciate the ideas and thought you've put into it.
