Book title reveal!!

First, I want to thank everyone for their support on my last post.  Hopefully I will hear back from the other job I interviewed for.  I would like to put those coffee servings days behind me and resume my "writing while drinking coffee and tipping days". :)

Also, I am ONE follower away from 200 and super excited!  I am planning a great celebration on July 7th for my second blog-iversary and hopefully having 200 followers!  You won't want to miss it!

I have been working on Book 2, the companion novel to "Nameless".  I've just thought up two new characters, Jessalyn and Tobias.  I'm very excited to start writing them in chapter 5 or 6.  Jessalyn is a young woman who was born deaf and Tobias is her best friend.  They are pretty sweet and different from the rest of the characters introduced so far.  I am a little nervous about writing a character like Jessalyn, but I will do my research like a good little writer.  She's definitely going to be a spunky character and a good friend for Dalia.

Today, I decided to reveal the title of Book 2 and the opening line.  Then I wouldn't have to call it Book 2 anymore. :)  I'm very happy with the name and I hope that you like it!!

Without further chatter, here is the name of the companion to "Nameless" - 




Peace wasn’t possible until he paid for the dead children and the dark blood upon his hands. 



What do you think? :)

  3. Does that say "Unless"? I remember someone else's blog recently where they had decided on a one-word title, which I think can present challenges if you're selling most of your books over the Internet because if you type "Unless" into Amazon's search engine you'll get hundreds of thousands of hits, so your book will probably end up on page 300 or something of the list, which forces people to have to search by author name and title name. Some people just won't put in that kind of work.

  4. I really like Unless. I think it sounds perfect for the sequel :) And I love one name titles. I wish I could think of them, lol.

    And thanks for joining the What If blogfest! Super excited to see what you come up with :D
