I need a title

BowlingBookletp3

As some of you may remember, last year I put together Bridge Mix, a selection of Schulz & Sasseville’s “It’s Only a Game” cartoons aimed at people who play bridge. It hasn’t sold a ton of copies, but enough that it was worth my time putting it together. And never one to fail to chase after a semi-success (and thus turn said semi-success into a net failure), I’m following it up with a book of bowling cartoons, mostly taken from “It’s Only a Game”, but also with some Young Pillars pieces mixed in.

The thing is, my sales brain desperately wants to call this new book Pin Nuts, and that may actually not be a good idea (at least if I want to stay on the good side of my pals at Creative Associates and Peanuts Worldwide!) So I need another, better title. Email your title suggestions to questions@aaugh.com … if I use your title for the book, or (in the case of my not using any of the suggested titles) if I decide yours is my favorite suggestion, you will win a free copy of the book. (That will be the sole remuneration for the right to use this title in selling and promoting this book. In the event of two people submitting the same title, the book goes to the first received. The challenge ends whenever I decide it ends.  In the event of pancakes, I want syrup.)

Shoot for the Moon, Snoopy cover

We now have a cover image for the upcoming book Shoot For The Moon, Snoopy! And I should note the cultural bias of this shot. Why is Snoopy shown right side up and Woodstock down upsidew-down. There is no right-side up in space! This is just anti-bird prejudice!! Also: is that inset …
