The Missing Title

As this new year begins I have just completed the first draft of Skunk-Guy III. The title that I originally had set for the book has since gone to the wayside. As I was writting the book it became obvious that the my original title gave the ending away. We couldn't have that now could we. It would take the fun out of reading it. So now I am faced with a book draft with no title. It's not that we can't come up with a good title but I have a feeling it will take some doing. I mean I just didn't come up with Norman & The Stinking Space Goo over night ya know. It was an arduous process, many elements had to be considered, several titles were tested and in the end the stinkest title won out.
This third volume introduces some new characters and brings back some more familiar ones. Norman finds himself facing a tremendous challenge when a revenge plot threatens to blot out Skunk-Guy all together, nuff said.
I am also planning my second annual trip to the Imagine School on Broadway this month. I will get to judge a spelling bee and then have some fun with the kids as we talk about Skunk-Guy and writing and whatever else is on their mind. A very nice way to start the year off.
