In this post I shall tackle the subject of choosing a title for your book.
I find it to be very, very difficult. My current title was Amber but I decided to change the title to Blood Stone--which stands for protecting against all evil, which fits the theme of my book perfectly.
I wonder, are authors ever permanently happy with their title? Or are they always second guessing it, even after it is published. I want to be more than content with my title and right now I am. I wanted a title that resembled my MC's purpose and Bloodstone gives me that satisfaction.
Some questions to think about...
What inspires a title? A character? A place in the story? A song? A line? A scene? Maybe all of these things?
So tell me, what inspired your title? Are you happy with it? Are you still indecisive about it?
Also, what do you guys think, which is a catchier title, Amber or Bloodstone?
The night was strange, almost alien. I felt them watching me; their whispers were carved into the center of my thoughts, haunting me in my wake and sleep. I felt the urge to flee but something kept me here, made me stay where danger lived. I knew that something was her.
