New Book Title
One of the challenges of the upcoming publication of my first book on Mormonism has been settling on a title that reflects both its history (it stayed in print almost 20 years through multiple printings) and its new research. Here is what Zondervan has said about it, and the tentative new title:
Your book”‘s long-standing is very important. We would like to include “Third Edition” in the main title, so this stands out on Amazon, CBD, and in databases where the book is listed for retailers. It will help further distinguish it from other books. It does not need to be rendered so closely to the title on the cover, however.
Regarding a subtitle, we wanted to emphasize not just the personal aspect of the book and your story, but also the relevancy and updating that has gone into it. Our team likes the following subtitle: A Former Mormon Looks at the Church Today. We feel this retains the personal aspect “Former Mormon,” but also signals that it is much more than just your story.
The Mormon Mirage, Third Edition
A Former Mormon Looks at the Church Today
What do you think, readers? Does this title work?
