A Goodreads user asked Amanda Hamm:

What is the title of the second Coffee and Donuts book?

Amanda Hamm I’m not sure yet. I want to call it Sofie Waits. When I told my husband, however, we had a conversation that went something like this:

Him: She waits? She just waits? That makes it sound like nothing happens.
Me: You’ve read my books, right? It’s not a thriller.
Him: Yeah, but she waits? That’s not even an action word.
Me: Something happens when she waits. It makes sense when you read it.
Him: It doesn’t matter how clever it is if no one reads it.
Me: Do you know how long it took me to come up with that?
Him: Do you want people to read the book?
Me: Yes. And I like that title.
Him: That doesn’t make anyone want to read it.
Me: I would read a book called Sofie Waits. If it had an interesting description and a good cover and…

He was just shaking his head at me at this point so I gave up trying to convince him. Now I’m trying to decide if being stubborn about the title would be tenacious or just pig-headed.
