One of the things that has helped/hindered the success of my book, REBEL HEART, is that there are a lot of other books out right now with that title. (I actually pilfered it from an instrumental by The Corrs, and it still screwed me.) I mean it helps because people who are searching for the other, more well-known versions might discover mine, but what if it hinders me because they’re ticked that my book isn’t the one they thought it was?
This vexes me. I am terribly vexed. Maybe I should only use one popular word in a title and make the rest unique. Yeah! That’s it. Okay, let’s see…”Runner” sounds cool. Plenty of action in that word. All right, we’re on track. Just gotta make sure it’s not taken.
Crap. Okay. I’ll just check the rest.
That looks weird. Where’s Han Solo?
Stupid–kites don’t run.
Okay, sure. Cool. I’ll keep looking.
Grrr, that would have been a great title! Maybe I’ll riff it. Switch the words or something.
Well…I can tweak that a little bit…
OH, REAL MATURE.
I officially give up.
Maybe there are some, like, vampire ideas that haven’t been taken yet.
