My book proposal is almost done. Again.
The first version went out to several publishers. Some liked it. Some did not. In the end, no one decided to publish it. The original version was Law of Attraction-centric and after The Secret, most publishers were inundated with LOA proposals. While I like to think my style of writing is personal and unique enough to set me apart, the marketing departments of the publishers were not convinced.
So it was back to the drawing board. And I had an important question to answer. What sets me apart? What’s unique about me?
I thought back to when I was a boy and what I valued.
You know who popped into my head? The Fonz.
Drew and brother Ned on the ferry.
Like millions of people I was a big fan of the Fonz. I was always into the concept of "cool."
As I grew older, my notion of cool evolved from an externally-based concept (i.e., Levi’s are way cooler than Wranglers!), to an internally-based one (i.e., do I feel happy?). In fact, it was my resonance with cool that got me into attraction in the first place.
And so my book explores the essence of cool (I define cool as feelings of Freedom, Ease, and Connection) through a series of essays, similar to how I write the features in my newsletters.
I’m feeling good about what I’m putting out there. I’d love to be known for defining cool in terms of a feeling (rather than how other people think of you) and sharing my insights as to the building blocks (and common barriers) for creating a very cool life.
Kinda stuck on the title though. Been thinking about it too long. Could use some feedback.
I want the title to be catchy, cool (of course), and capture the essence of the book.
The subtitle is clearer: Adventures in Creating a Life of Freedom, Ease, and Connection.
What would be most helpful is your opinion of what should go before the colon!

Thanks for your help!
P.S. If you have a title suggestion, add it in the comments. I was getting too many suggestions in the live poll.
