Release Date is Coming Soon

Okay, fellow writers. As you may know, I've been in the process of finalizing the paperback copy editing and proofing. Only a couple of chapters remain, and the paperback version release date is drawing near.

However (and this is where I'm requesting your assistance) I'm having second thoughts about the book title. As we all know, the title is a critical element in the book writing process. Originally, this manuscript was entitled The Treasure of Morro Bay. Shortly after it was completed, I decided a sequel would be a good project to work on. So, after the sequel was finished, the title of the original changed to A Tale of Two Hearts: Book One in the Treasure of Morro Bay Trilogy. The sequel became Deja Vu: Book Two, etc.

But now, I'm considering changing that before it goes to print and becomes, forever, that title. Here are my thoughts, and I would appreciate yours very much. In fact, if you look to the right sidebar, you will see the three titles I'm considering. I hope you'll take a moment and add your vote. There's not a lot of time, so please direct your friends to this blog so they can add their opinions as well.

Thanks to all.

  1. Well, I'm not sure, but I'd just like to caution you about changing it at all. Why?

    I work at a Barnes & Noble in Independece, MO and just the other day I had a woman come in asking about your book. She actually had all the whole title (a miracle in itself, trust me). I could assume she follows your blog and would be aware of the change, but I don't know all the different places your book it listed - if the title gets changed and people don't know, they'll be asking for this book and in some sense it won't exist.

    Granted, that's only one person, but I think it's something worth thinking about.
