I have a Title

Book Two in the Time of Transition series lost a title back in July. Turns out another book book coming out from Torin the same time period had the same title. And I totally understand why they made me change my title instead of the other author. His books are SpellQuest and then Spellbound. Mine were THE WISH LIST and then Spellbound.

So I sent my editor a list of possible titles--yes, they were mine, although one was suggested by my husband.This is the kind of thing they don't prepare you for when you first start out writing. You need to talk to other authors about titles. And as clever as you may think a title is, it may not work for marketing, so you have to be prepared to come up with alternatives.

But now a title has been chosen. I like it. Yes, it is a famous line from another book and movie, but I love the book and the movie, and it fits.

And so without further ado, the title of Book 2 in the Time of Transition Series:

*~*~*AS YOU WISH*~*~*

Coming from Tor Books April 2011. Watch for the cover soon.

Books I'm reading now:
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Proof by Seduction by Courtney Milan
The Perfect Poison by Amanda Quick

A laugh

I'm in the middle of the final two chapters of the rough draft and don't have time for a long thoughtful blog, but I hope this leaves you with a smile.
It's A Trap!
