After extended agonizing I'm getting comfortable with the title 99 Jobs: Blood Sweat and Houses. Then immediately in the jacket copy I hope people will read this:
I repair homes. With each job I enter somebody’s life. Here are 99 "tool belt tales” about good hard work and the people I’ve met.
My goals are modest. At a minimum, I hope to fund the cost of hiring a professional editor and a good book designer. If I can raise more than the minimum, it can pay for a tiny publicity campaign and maybe even a low-budget book tour.
I'll keep you updated.
