Most marketing departments change authors' titles to suit their marketing plans.

I'm often inspired by song lyrics or common phrases that are upbeat or, sexy, or amusing. I always try to use the title somewhere in the book.

I also begin the hunt for a title by thinking of the tag line as part of the title. Like, "She didn't want to find...Love in a Pawn Shop" and "She needs a lover with a ... Slow Hand"

I decided years ago that if I wanted my titles to succeed with publishers I'd need to dress them in a good tagline. My idea worked.

The books that didn't get past the marketing people are Perdition House Part 1 and 2. My editor didn't like the word Perdition, whereas I find it smooth and easy on the tongue...the sound and rhythm of the word appealed to me. I also had a great deal of fun using it in dialogue throughout the series. "It's lovely in Perdition." or from a hero's perspective in dealing with a strong minded woman, "Life's hell in Perdition."

Now that I have re-issued the series I've renamed it Perdition (from Midnight Confessions) because readers would ask me for "Perdition House" books. Something that didn't surprise me in the least. After all, the house itself is a character, and the reviews that come in point that out, too.

Thanks so much for asking this question: I LOVE coming up with titles!

I am between manuscripts. It is, bar none, the weirdest place in the world to be. I already went on and on about exactly how weird it is on Word Wranglers, so I will have to dig deeper for conversation here.
Since I am in the strange place I’m not going to write about, I thought I’d go ahead and talk about starting a new book. How do you do it? Do you have a routine when you start? What comes... Read more of this blog post »

Anthea Lawson
“carried the full knowledge of how a man and a woman fit together. The plunge of his tongue into her mouth, her yielding softness—all this was part of the dance, a promise of deeper intimacies. She pressed herself closer to him, yearning spiraling out from her center. Nicholas”

Laura, thanks! I didn't know where this would even show up. LOL

I know all the books I've written that have been reviewed are here somewhere. But yes, I guess I'll try to maybe add them to my profile? Or maybe just finding them would be great.

I have to tool around on the site to figure things out , but I'm really glad you're here!
But I'd also like to start a list of what I've been reading lately.
