    Would you read this if it were a book?

    I am currently writing a book and hub pages has helped me out greatly.. I have made zero dollars on this site but that isn't why I am here. I wrote " The Sun Shines Bright: A Revelation" as a preface to the book I am working on. Does this sound like something you would read?

    For me it depends more on content and subject matter.  From the title it appears to be non-fiction, is that right?  I would have to know more before I would know if it is something I might read.

    Update:  I did read it and, respectfully, there are a number of errors in spelling and grammar:  are instead of our, things like that.

    It seems a bit rough in the making but if you were to make it a little simpler and more catching in its simplicity than I think it would draw more eyes to it; it is best not to overdo things and titles are one of them.

    I think the biggest challenge people face are striving to create titles that lure another in with a few words. If there are too many it becomes a cluttered title.

    In some cases, less is better.

    Going out on a limb now, and without knowledge of the context of the book, I would maybe say that "Enlightened by the Sun" would be better or "The Solar Key to my Revelation" {even though it is about as lengthy as your own title}

    It is a bit rough.. i agree. this was written off the top of my head. I guess I should have refined it a bit before I asked this question. I have refined it a bit and have actually outlined about 20 chapters.. I will reintroduce it shortly.. thanks for the feed back.

      You're very welcome but it is good you asked it and got the feedback in the first place; constructive criticism and refinement are the biggest parts of the writing process so keep the enthusiasm! It was intriguing nonetheless.
