Hey guys, I’m Dave Chesson of and today we’re going to talk about good book titles and even dive into the bad ones as well.

As most us know, a good book title can be a difference maker, but sometimes people just miss the mark.

So, in today episode, we’ll cover the four things authors should consider when creating their titles, which books did it best, and which ones….well quite frankly get the Jar Jar Binks award for just aweful books and their names.

Before we get into our list of the good, the bad and the ugly in book titles, let’s first take a quick dive into some of the factors every author should consider when creating their titles.

With that, we’ll go with #1: Intrigue
Intrigue is an important part to a book title because it is what makes the person stop and want to buy your book. Too much intrigue can cause vagueness so watch out.

However, there are many ways in which a good book title can invoke intrigue like:
Contrary to Perception:
Some good book examples that use intrigue with a contrary to perception twist are:
Trust Me I’m Lying
A Partial History of Lost Causes

Then there are the Shocking book titles:
A couple of good examples of book titles that use the shock value are:
New Ways to Kill Your Mother
This Book Is Full of Spiders
Would you eat your cat?
I Still Miss My Man But My Aim Is Getting Better

Another way authors like to use intrigue is by twisting Familiarity. With this tactic, you take something they are used to and either use it or make a subtle adjustement:
For Whom the Bell Tolls
The Devil Wears Prada
Sense, Sensability and Sea Monsters – this could be shock too.

The next major part to a good book title is whether or not it is Genre Worthy. Genre worthiness is making sure your good book title says within your genre or topics’ norms. You don’t want to do a title that talks about Interstaller Space Marines and have it be about a love affair.

Here are a couple of genre perfect titles:
Do Andriods Dream of Electric Sleep
Tell the Wolves I’m Home
Silence of the Lambs
Gone With The Wind – instead of the ho hum title of “Tomorrow is Another Day”

#3: Context Context Context!
It’s important that you always ensure your title can never be taken out of context. Good titles cover their you know what.

#4: Discoverability
My favorite aspect is the discoverability of your book’s title. Make it too obscure and Amazon and other book markets will have a hard time presenting it to potential customers.

While we just discussed what goes into good titles for books, here are a couple that absolutely missed the mark and can be considered bad titles for books:

Genre Whoops:
Manly Art of Knitting
Counting the Days Until the Apocalypse: How many days until the US Elections? Apocalypse for children..I think you have the wrong demographic here.

Discoverability Issues:
Does God Ever Speak Through Cats
How to Avoid Huge Ships

The Plain Ole’ God Awful:
Everything I Know About Women I learned from my Tractor: His wife must be like a John Deere because nothing runs like a deer, of which his wife ran away a long time ago.
A Passion For Donkeys: Laughing…..
Mommy Drinks Because You’re Bad: This must be something from Family Guy…nope….it’s real.

As you can see a lot goes into coming up with good book titles. If you do it wrong or miss one of the four factors, you could be in real trouble like “A passion for Donkeys” kind of trouble.

To keep at it and be wise about your books title. It can mean a lot to your sales.

The paragraph is the most important unit of a well-written essay. The paragraph has a specific structure and standards that make it effective and enjoyable to read. In this writing lesson we will look at how to construct good paragraphs and improve writing with better flow and clarity. After the lesson, take the quiz:


Hi, welcome again to I’m Adam. Today’s lesson is about the paragraph. It’s a writing lesson, and I want to show people what a paragraph is and how to construct one, what to do, what not to do so you can write very clear, very tight paragraphs. This is especially important for IELTS, TOEFL, SAT students but everybody has to follow the exact same rules. Now before I even begin, I must say that I’m talking mostly about academic writing or even business writing. Creative writing like novels or short stories, anything fiction, you can do anything you want. Only always remember: somebody has to read what you wrote so it has to be clear. But academic essays, for example, certain rules you have to follow; you have to be very careful about them. So let’s begin.

In terms of like the actual way a paragraph looks: you have to indent or skip a line. So let me just make sure you understand what an indent is. This is an indent, the first line a little bit pushed in or you can make sure you skip a line between paragraphs. But don’t do both. If you skip a line, don’t indent. Okay? That’s the main thing.

Now, that’s in terms of the way it looks. In terms of content — and this, I can’t stress this enough — very, very, very important: one central idea in one paragraph. Okay? I’ve seen many people, I’ve seen many essays where you start a paragraph talking about one thing, and then you go off on a tangent and talk about something completely unrelated. So for example: if you start a paragraph and you’re talking about apples, continue to talk about apples. If you go to oranges, that’s maybe okay because you’re still talking about fruit. But if you start with apples, go to oranges, go to bananas, and then end up with monkeys in space there’s a bit of a problem; the reader has no idea what you’re talking about. One paragraph, one central idea.

Now, make sure that you tell the reader what this central idea is. This is your thesis statement. Okay? It’s a very general sentence. All it does is introduce the topic of the paragraph, nothing else. All the details comes after. So speaking of details, we’ll talk about details in detail, but all other ideas, all the other sentences, all your sentences with the details must directly relate back to the main idea. So let’s say here is your thesis statement; very general, every sentence after must relate back to that thesis statement. Okay? You can’t go off to another idea. Everything must support this, must talk about the same topic. Very important. Okay?

How long should your paragraph be? Technically, a paragraph could be one sentence, but in an academic essay that rarely happens. But it could be any length you want, as long as you’re still on that one topic, as long as you still have things to write and things to say about that topic, say it. If you have four sentences, fine; if you have 10 sentences, also okay. Again, for IELTS, TOEFL, SAT students: four, five sentences should be your limit. You can’t be too long because you don’t have time and you’re going to start making mistakes.

So now, the details. Very important to have lots of details. Why is this topic important to your overall idea of your essay? Not only tell me what is the topic, what is the thesis statement of the paragraph, make sure you explain to me why this is important to the general idea of the essay. Give me your reasons. Now, why is it important? And then reasons, why you think what you’re saying supports this idea. Examples, always use examples because giving me the reasons is okay; examples make me see exactly what you’re trying to say. Very easy for me to understand what you’re trying to say.

Now, in terms of flow, in terms of the way the reader can approach the paragraph, you have to have bridges. What is, what do bridges mean? Basically, when you have one idea in this sentence, you must connect it to the next sentence, you must connect it to the next sentence. Every sentence must have a link to the next sentence. This creates flow, makes it much easier to read and understand, and it keeps you on the one topic.

Now, key terms. If you’re talking about something specific and you have to use a key term, use it as many times as you need to. Otherwise, avoid repetition. Try not to use the same word more than once in one paragraph. Okay? For example: if you’re using the word “moreover” in the paragraph, don’t use it, don’t use “moreover” again — use “in addition to”, use “furthermore”, “another”, etc. Try to avoid using one word more than once, especially in the same paragraph.
