I always giggle a bit when I see movies or TV shows about book publishing. Like most shows based on people’s professions, it tends to be…well…glamorized. So, if you’ve seen Younger or The Proposal, enjoy the entertainment!

The truth about much of publishing is that there are often a lot of people in a room making big decisions–from what meetings to take with agents and authors, books to buy, covers to fight for, and most frequently (in my opinion) what title and subtitle is right for the book.


On this episode of Bound + Determined, I’m breaking down the anatomy of a subtitle.

Why focus on the subtitle, you ask? Because it’s incredibly important for attracting the RIGHT people to your book. So, let’s break it down and go through some examples together.

Tune in and let me know what subtitle you’ve been noodling!
