Help wanted for a new book title
No matter what title I come up with, the publisher will change it. Nevertheless, I need a catchy title in order to hook an agent, and he in turns needs such a title to hook an editor.
The book will bear a vague resemblance to the bestseller "How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It" but will just consider short-term dangers, especially as regards keeping a low profile. Perhaps how to prepare for:
..... A serious financial meltdown
..... A biblical storm such as Katrina
..... A power outage that lasts for month or more
..... A national airport shutdown such as on 9/11/2001
..... A terrorist attack causing a mass exodus from the cities
One title I've considered is Why to Become Invisible Before Disaster Strikes but there must be better ones out there. If you think you have the answer, please send it to my new forum.
