The name game....

This post comes late, I know. I have been all consumed with revisions and renaming my new novel. My friend and mentor, hated the name "Homecoming", and my agent, wasn't too thrilled about it either, so I had to find a new one. Every time I took a break, I would jot down ideas for a new title.

I can name anything. It's one of the ways that I make my living, but when it comes to naming my own books...I am hopeless!! I want the name to say everything and I want it to be catchy and I want it to have a wide appeal, and I want, I want, I want...sigh. Let's face it, a great name can make all the difference, it can stop that browser in the book store from browsing and get them to actually pick up your book and turn it over to read the back, or better yet, open the first page and get so hooked on the story that they have to buy it!!

After many terrible suggestions, I think I just might have it...a name that makes people go...yes, I want to read that! I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, it's back to revisionland.
