Multi-published author Bonnie Edwards lives with her husband and pets on the rainy coast of British Columbia. Her earthy, irreverent, love stories sometimes have a paranormal twist, likes curses and ghosts, other times not. But her books always entertain and guarantee a happy ending.
With four ongoing romance series (Tales of Perdition, The Brantons and The Christmas Collection) and contemporary family novels in her newest series, Return to Welcome, she rarely spends a day without writing. She has written novels, novellas and short stories for Kensington Books, Harlequin Books, Carina Press, and Robinson (UK) although now she publishes her work herself. Look for more exciting releases throughout 2018…

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!

When I write, I put my heart into each book, and with that, I add a bit of knowledge from my hard-won experiences. So, you might say, the characters reach their happily-ever-after ending by learning from their mistakes, just as I have done over the years.
The following are some “gems” of wisdom buried in the stories I create.
Loving in isolation was pointless. True love was mutual. Quid pro quo.... Read more of this blog post »

“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.
