What’s in a name – well, a lot really!

 

Recently I published a book – PLANET DANCING. It is about conserving nature. It contains six large ideas how we, all of us, on a world scale, might become involved. The book has a number of illustrations that are clearly of a wildlife nature. The cover too has a wildlife look to it. All of that should suggest that the subject matter is nature conservation.

Wrong.

In one shop the book found its way onto the ‘Astronomy’ shelf. In another it was placed in ‘Geology Section‘.  In a university bookshop it was proudly displayed under ‘Arts and Dance’.

I offer this to those who are contemplating writing books on non-fiction. Be extremely careful that your title does not mis-lead. Hope this is of help to some.
