The Final Title

Here’s what will be on the cover:

The Autism Mom’s* Survival Guide: Creating a Balanced and Happy Life While Raising a Child With Autism (Trumpeter, 2010)
(*and Dad’s Too!)
[[copyline]] With insights and strategies from researchers,
professionals, and parents

Turning it in next week!! Thank you to all who let me interview them and to those who gave me your stories! I could not have done it without you.


Um….I hope you don’t have an apostophre (sp?) in the final title for Dad’s, because that is rather grammatically incorrect.
The title is great otherwise 🙂

Editor and publisher approval?

Yes, the idea came from Eden herself (and the Editorial Board)…

Well, thank you, Kate! The thing is, it is meant to be Dad’s Autism Survival Guide (as in, belongs to Dad, just like the former part is that which belongs to Mom…) so actually the apostrophe is correct where it is. However, your point is well taken. It may be that it is awkward as it is, so I’ll think about that. 🙂
