The original title of Pride and Prejudice was First Impressions. When it was submitted to a publisher, was not even read and was returned unopened.Putting aside the blatant irony of this scenario, it got me thinking. Titles are important. Even if the publisher changes them later, the author still has a responsibility to name her books well.
It's not really my strength.
My most recent book (queries sent: 3) has been in the works since October 2009. The main character's name has long been Ivolet. And, like the great majority of my books, the title mirrored the MC's first name. Ivolet. My lovely CP thought that it was the title. I did, too.
What's the title of your current WIP?
MC = Main Character
CP = Critique Partner
WIP = Work in Progress
