Contest.

Lisa Stein wrote in with what I think is an excellent idea. My book (Hee! That sounds funny!) has a working title, but there might be a better title out there. Offer up your suggestions for the book's title. If your title is The One, you'll get an autographed copy of my book (Hee! Still funny!).

Lisa's title suggestion was Tea in My Lap.

I like Tea in My Lap!

I'd suggest The Hole in My Head, but I don't know if you want to relive that whole experience!

So is this 90,000 words in the same vein (or, better, FROM the same vein) as your blog? Helps to know what we're titling...

Meanwhile, congratulations, and add Wisconsin to your book tour!

I like Kathryn's 'The Hole in My Head'.

Here's mine 'The Quintessence of Quinn'.

I can think of lots of great titles that refer to blog posts, but if this is to be mostly original material, then those references won't make sense to new readers. Seems likely you'll pick something from the new stuff. Hooray on the book - you're a fantastic writer & you've more than paid your dues right here. I always describe you to friends as David Sedaris meets Erma Bombeck (I hope thats okay). Now they'll finally believe me because you're published.

I also like No Scandal Here (the normal adult life of a former child actress)

I'd build on Stitchy Finger's idea:

Quinntessence.

How about "Family and Life." It would denote two major achievements, AND be a double entendre, since the word "Family" in this case would also refer to the series.

Something you posted recently struck a chord with me- made me laugh and think.

Here's a title!

Quinn Hasn't Been Arrested....Yet

;) Not that you WILL be, or anything. Just seems you were on to something with that all former child stars seem to have ended up being arrested.

Love the blog, can't wait for the book. Best of luck.

I like several of these suggestions. What about combining? "A Whole in My Head, Tea in My Lap"?

Congratulations! Now I can say something like, "Yeah, I read her blog before she became all famous."
Oh, and I would strongly suggest that you refrain from using your last name anywhere in the title of the book. How to put this delicately? It could be mistaken for porn.

Quinn dear,

My entry for your book title is one of my favorite of your lines from Good-Bye Girl "Huh..?"

Best wishes on your new venture Mike McDonald Ramona, CA - mmollyspop@aol.com

Mary is right - Alan Cumming has a whole line of body care products with double entendre names.

I've given up on working Lil Skank into a title. The title I have is long but it sums it up for me.

Feeding the Homeless One Cheese Pizza at a Time and Other Confessions of a Former Child Actor

Who wouldn't read that?

Are you still taking suggestions? My brain is slow to think of any. How about Serenely Stuck?
