    davidrm wrote 'Indie Game Development Survival Guide'; do you think you could get away with 'Indie Game Marketing Survival Guide'?

    I know it was put out by Charles River Media...Maybe they would be interested in publishing your book. It's quite a unique subject for this particular genre.

    or

    shareware marketing tricks
    shareware marketing techniques
    shareware marketing secrets
    shareware marketing bible
    shareware marketing - the definitive guide

    Surely the information in your book could be applied to any kind of kind of small developer software marketing.

    in fact, what about small developer software marketing.

    [edit]
    Actually, i like Erik's last title....LOL :)

    I checked out your blog and saw the title 'Joseph Lieberman's Guide to Independent Game Marketing', it seemed a little formal so i ran it through the snoop dog translator, it came out as 'Josizzle Lizzle Guizzle to Indizzle Gizzle Mizzle'...might make it appeal to the younger market...fo sho.

    Wow

    I had no idea this post would get so much traffic, lol. Either the free book idea is appealing or you just like making fun of me and my grand ambitions (most likely the latter)

    Keep em comming, even the funny ones.

    And who said my book won't have a free trial!? It won't, but I want to know who's spilling the beans. Heheh.

    Seriously, there are a lot of good names already in the hat from this thread alone. I think I am going to regret making a public request... from no ideas to too many!
