    "Death wasn't His Final Chapter" = The words Death, His, Final & Chapter are not add ons or participles whereas the word "wasn't" is. Come on now. I may not remember the official terms or phrases but I do know that word is different than the rest.

    The words you don't capitalize are like "a" "or" "the" "of" and so forth. Not sure either what a "solid noun" is. Googling it brings up compound nouns which isn't right.

    I'm not sure how to describe it but since I don't feel like trying to explain it to every person who asks, I'm just gonna make the change.

    If you don't want to believe me, maybe believe all these books:
    http://www.amazon.com/Man-Who-Wasnt-There/dp/B0046LUG26
    http://www.amazon.com/Wasnt-Your-Fau...dp/B00PTIF3Q4/
    http://www.amazon.com/Wasnt-My-Fault.../dp/B003V4B4L6
    http://www.amazon.com/They-Said-Wasn.../dp/1412082129
    http://www.amazon.com/Cat-Who-Wasnt-.../dp/B000OCXJA2
    http://www.amazon.com/Sorry-Wasnt-Wh.../dp/B00XH72IMG

    And I'm sure there are plenty more. Of course if you want to get around it, you can put it in all caps or all lowercase. Then it won't matter.

    I understand but the problem I'm facing now is that I would have to republish my entire book on createspace because they don't allow you to change the title of the file after you've already submitted it.

    Although, I changed it every other place I could but if you find somewhere that's not updated, will you please let me know?

    The rule is you don't capitalize articles (a, an, the), prepositions (such as by, from, to, through, etc.), and conjunctions (such as and, but, or, after, until, etc.) unless it is the first word of the title, then you capitalize.

    Do a retro video with Barry Manilow singing

    JUST A GIGOLO and do a goofball video and make it viral.

    You have 5 seconds to hook the millennials now and viral videos do it.

    Then link to the book and change the title

    JUST A GIGOLO

    Lol, but the book needs serious editing bro.

    Paragraphs are way too long for this keep me interested generation.

    They fall asleep with long paragraphs.
