Titles, Titles, Titles

February 17, 2012

Titles.  I hate ’em.  Really.  I mean, yeah, finding a great title for a book — THE perfect title — that’s really fun.  A great feeling.  But other than that coming up with titles just sucks.  And that’s part of what I’m doing today.  I’m sitting in front of my computer working on a proposal for my next two novels.  I know what they’re about, mostly.  But I have no idea what to call them.  And so I go to Amazon, and as ideas occur to me, I search their books section to see if anyone has used the title before.  Not that this would absolutely rule out any given option.  No one can copyright a title, which is why you sometimes see two or three or five books with the same title.  But all things being equal, I would rather come up with something original.  I have a title for one of the two books.  At least it’s a working title.  I know that I’m not ready to commit to using it by the fact that I’m not willing to say what it is.  Not yet.  I don’t like it enough.  Maybe it’ll grow on me.  Maybe not.  But it’s good enough for now, and I still have another book to name.  –Sigh–  I wonder if a beer would help….

Hope you all have a good weekend.
