Do you ever wonder if the title of your current wip is suitable, or the best in charge of your entire novel?
I've been weighing up titles for my current wip and to tell you the truth I have ended up with two. lol.. Airborne and Forgotten Memories. We all want our titles to be catchy and represent the story idea inbetween the pages don't we?
My last novel had seven titles and I managed to come up with one. I know that if an editor doesn't think the title suits you have to come up with something else, or they will inspire you.
The problem is I'm truly stuck for a title. Finding one to represent the entire novel and what it is about is a crushing experience at present. lol.... I know it depends on who you are targeting. Like the, Dashing Prince of the Pacific, I think that is somewhat Harlequin. The Arranged Marriage or Marriage Menu, all harlequin.
But what about those others that are slightly romantic suspense... so I've got Airborne and Forgotten Memories. Just something for me to ponder while I think about my next manuscript. Yes, I have finished at 68.000 words but wanted it to be seventy but that shouldn't be a problem.... Hmmm. Who am I targeting. Well, I originally thought a particular publisher but I don't think they publish amnesia and aircraft stories. Then I see so many more publishers I can send it to. So hopefully this one will find a home soon.
I was also thinking, I'm making my trailer for this one after the last dramatic episode. lol..
How do you go with your titles? Do you thrash them around in your mind, or do you have others to help you. If the latter is the case, don't they have to read the manuscript to form an opinion? Well, I do. I have to know all about the story to form some type of title.
I guess a title is not something to be overly stressed about, but I do. :) Forgotten Memories rings a bell. Even though, if the publisher already has that title then it's a no go. lol...
Okay, guess what it's nearly the weekend and I'm looking forward to having the few days with hubby. Not much else going on my home front. As for work, my novel Heat in the Outback has had its final errata completed. Yah.. for its release on the 7th June Us. 8th June in Oz.
Have a great weekend, and a lovely time. Meanwhile I'll be contemplating my next wip and thinking what title to use. :)
