After reading through allllllll the crazy-amazing and just plain weird titles below and brainstorming with my publisher and editor, we’ve come up with six finalist titles for the next My Life / Tom Weekly book. It’s time for you to have your say and let me know which you like best in comments below or on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. Thanks!
1. My Life & Other Failed Experiments
2. My Life & Other Stuff You’ll Never Believe
3. My Life & Other Doomed Adventures
4. My Life & Other Ninja Guinea Pigs
5. My Life & Other Bendable Rules
6. My Life & Other Brain Freezes
It’s that time of year again. I’ve written ten new short stories for the next book in the My Life series starring Tom Weekly and I need a title. If you come up with the title, you’ll win a signed copy when the new book hits shelves in March 2018 and you’ll be the first person I thank in the acknowledgements at the back of the book!
My Life Series Book Titles
The series began with My Life & Other Stuff I Made Up and the titles have become weirder as they’ve gone along. The last two books were My Life & Other Exploding Chickens and My Life & Other Weaponised Muffins.

Sneak Peek of My Life Book 6
To get you thinking, here’s a sneak peek of some of the stories in the new book…
There’s a very tense guinea pig hostage situation and a story about a disastrous author visit to Tom Weekly’s school (no bearing on reality, of course). There’s a story where Nan enlists Tom’s help to steal a fruitcake so she can win the Kings Bay Show Fruitcake Bake for the ninth year in a row. There’s another where Tom decides to make his mark on the world by eating a car.
