I need suggestions on a title for my book.

    It has been five years since I started writing my books and they are all...except one, nearing completion. The problem I have is that every time I read a chapter or two, I want to change it a little here and there and so I'm never going to finish if I keep this up. I should just give it to someone to edit it for me and then be satisfied. I still haven't decided on a name either....any suggestions? My first book is an autobiography of myself and family. We have had a very interesting life. From moving to Mexico and living in a tent for twelve years and traveling over a dirt road for five hours that resembles a cow trail to many other experiences that most would find shocking and incredible. My next book is a collection of true sayings from the mouths of little children that are downright hilarious. Each saying will be accompanied by a cartoon type caricature depicting what the saying is about. My last project is a book about the circumstances surrounding the kidnapping and assassination of two peace activists in the state of Chihuahua Mexico. The title of my first book is The Big Family, but I want to change it so I need some suggestions. The next one is titled Kids Who Tell It Like It Is. I might change that one also. Any ideas? The last one is Of Murder, Mayhem and Mexico. That one I like so we might keep it that way.

I like some of these suggestions. Though I don't know exactly what is encompassed in the book, I would, from your descriptions above, consider:

-In The Potters Hands.
-Real Life.
-Our Choice.
-Lafe In The Fast Lane. (couldn't resist)
-On Purpose.

I would want to read a book about a family if they were bold, unusualy titles that made me grab the book and read the rest of the cover. If you're unique (and I know you are), then say so.

Just my two cents.

God Bless,
Jaime D. Buckley
