Must Have a Title #MRFWauthor
When I come up with a final title, I try to consider the book as a whole and find a title that is meaningful to the story and characters in some fashion. I think I've been really lucky when it comes to the books and stories I've sold to publishers. I've only had one title changed and that was for One Week in Your Arms. My original title was One Week in Paradise, which I've used a lot in the promo I've done for it because that is actually what the brunt of the book involves is a one week trip to Hawaii. I would have loved to have had the book titled One Week in Paradise, with a billionaire (subtitle) with tagline: How can she say no? But that was not to be.
Also with titles that are books in a series, I try to make them work together. In the Love Heals All series, the first book had 5 words in the title, so I came up with longer titles for the next two books so they would blend. I also matched the titles for my historical series, which I still haven't finished.
That about wraps it up for titles. I hope everyone has a good weekend!
