A few days ago I sent a list of 62 possible titles for Juneau Book 1 to my editor. It was a total crazy brainstorm of a list, more meant to provoke thought than to offer a final choice, and some were pretty silly. (Juneau, for those who don’t know, is the name of the main character, and wasn’t ever meant to be a title.)
Today, while sitting in the hot tub with Anna Carey, Tara Hudson and Michelle Krys (okay…that was just so fun to write) I heard my iPhone buzz and saw an email from my editor that had honed the list down to three choices.
I told my hot tub companions the summary of the book, and the three potential titles, and we all voted for the same one. I reported the unanimous decision back to my editor, and she confirmed that the title of Juneau Book 1 will be…
are you ready?…*drumroll*
AFTER THE END
I hope it’s mysteriously vague enough to tempt you to read it. I can’t wait to see what the design team does with the cover!!!
And because I’m NOT going to give you a photo of the hottub where the voting action went down, here is a photo of the river running through our backyard. (I swam across it and back today. It was pretty cold. I’m the only one who has ventured in.)
