While it's been snowing, I've been writing,

and at last, I've written the final sentence of the rough draft for my third novel, but it still doesn't have a TITLE.
Please help me . . .
If you saw the following titles on a book shelf, not having a clue what the book might be about, which one would intrigue you enough to want to read it?

Broken Ties
Definite Colors
Son of Three
The Invisible Son
Lost Ties
Abandoned by Three
Family Ties

Would you take a minute and let me know; or if none of them grab your interest, tell me that too. I really would appreciate it.

Now, it is time to revise, revise, revise, and make this novel worthy of you, my loyal readers.

It is NaNoWriMo time...a National group challenge to complete the rough draft of a 50,000 word novel/book during the month of November. I'm taking the challenge, but I NEED YOUR HELP. I always have a title before writing, this time I only have a working title, Family Ties. I am not at all satisfied with it. So here is a short synopsis of my story:

What drives us each day?  Career, money, fashion, latest IT device? Or is it blood? The burning, savage need to discover whose red cells flow through our bodies? Al Jimson takes us on his life's journey of parental disappointments and loss. He shares his farm boy childhood, love of guitar and college achievements. All along his journey, Jacqueline seems to be the one positive that keeps him going, along with his much loved, well worn, green teddy bear. All he needs is to find 'Greeny's' mate to bring his life full circle. Al is driven, he accomplishes, yet he continues to thrust through life searching for the answer. Who am I?
And here is my challenge to you, my fans: email me your suggestions based on the above synopsis. If I choose your title you will received a signed copy (upon publication and distribution), and a gift card to Hastings, Weller Book Works, or The Kings English. 
My email address is:
