My novel has a new title!
As is fairly common, my publisher retains the rights to re-name my work. This is actually a good thing for me because:
- They have a finger on the pulse of the market and can come up with a title that will grab eyeballs and sell.
- I suck at titles.
At first the new title didn’t send me. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either. Over the past week, however, I have come to like it. It’s got a noir feel to it, and while my novel is decidedly not Chandleresque, in the plot there are a lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what-have-yous, so I think the title is appropriate. Maybe even a little foreshadowing.
My publisher came up with a new title, sub-title, and series title. Yes, this is a series, at least three books. I’m working on the outline for the second book right now.
Title: The Guilty Die Twice
Sub: A Legal Thriller
Series: Brothers in Law Series
Since dev edits are done, we’re closer to a publishing date. I’ll keep you posted on when that might be. A few more months at least, I think.
