I know I went silent for a few weeks. Nothing wrong here at all. More like needing to clear my head and focus on two new books. And now I find myself looking for some advice.
I’m closing in on final edits for the book I’ve been calling “Out of the Desert.” I’m not sure if that’s the best title.
So, what do you think? I have four titles below that people have recommended. Do you like any of them? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas. You can add your own suggestions.
- Out of the Desert
- Grains of Sand
- Sands of Time
- Toad the Dreamer
This is a novel in stories about Toad, his brother Cricket, his best friend Polly, and his cousin Phyl.
Once upon a time a little boy named Toad the Dreamer lived in the Mojave Desert. He dreamed first of being a spaceman. Then, he dreamed about growing up and going to college. Next, he dreamed about having a big family. He dreamed his mother’s dream for him becoming a writer.
One day, when Todd, the grown-up version of Toad, was closing in on his 50th birthday, he wondered what happened to the little boy who wanted to be a spaceman. Or a writer. Todd’s story, and those of his favorite cousin and best friend, bring him to this turning point.
Will he go back to the desert he left behind and find Toad the Dreamer? Or will he continue as he has, living a good life but not being satisfied with what he’s doing? Will he reconnect with his best friend?
