Diary of a Broken Mind: A Mother’s Story, A Son’s Suicide, and the Haunting Lyrics He Left Behind
After much back and forth and in reviewing comments from all of you, we finally decided on the subtitle. It had to capture what the book was about and those who have read it agree that this works.
I finished the last proofing. Kelly Browning, a friend and former employee is proofing, too. She’s really a pro I just pretend to be. Final nit changes will be sent back to the publisher and it will go to the printer this week where it will wait in line. Proofing was a very short timeframe. That’s the publishing world.
I should have a cover to show you some time this week. I’m very tired.
