Meg needs a book title

Not only is Meg Rosoff hard at work improving her website (it didn’t look that bad before, Meg), but she seems to have written a book, and it needs a title. So if anyone has one spare, she would like to know. Although, as Meg doesn’t have what I have, i.e. a comments facility, she appears to want people to come and see her in Hay in May. (Hey, that rhymed. Great.)

This could well be a recurring problem, as Meg needed assistance with the last book as well.

I’m no good at titles, as you can see, but I’m fairly sure it wouldn’t be too hard to provide some blogging software, if only to prevent jam in Hay. In May.

  1. thanks for the heads up that meg rosoff has posted on her website. i love meg’s infrequent postings and i love the obscureness and humour and floaty where am i personality of it all. but you have to keep checking back because it’s got no RSS feed … or maybe that’s a good thing?

  2. I think it is a good thing. It wouldn’t be Meg if it was super organised. She recently worked out how to find out the number of hits on the site, after I mentioned mine. She has a few more hits than I have…

  3. In my defense, I’d like to say that I have no trouble thinking up titles. It’s just that my editors always veto them. I have the title for book five, however, despite the fact that I’ve only written about five pages of it, and no one’s going to dissuade me: It’s about God turning out to be a 19 year old boy, and is going to be called There Is No Dog. Now, the title is based on a joke about a dyslexic atheist, so my editors will no doubt try to convince me that no one will get it, but I shall stand firm. Unless told once again, in no uncertain terms, that it will ruin sales. Ah well.

  4. I’ll buy it! Reminds me of The Vicar of Nibbleswicke; “so help me dog”.

  5. Can I cast a vote for Nomansland. I’d buy it!

  6. Well, what do editors know?
