  1. After thirty good years working as a screenwriter, I had one idea more suited to a book. My writer friends liked my title, but while hearing Ms. Nickles talk about the five seconds you have to grab someone’s attention, an alternate title popped in my head. Consensus is it’s ten times better. If it ends up selling some copies, I’ll come back on here with both titles to illustrate the effect of recognizing the need for something surprising and unique.
