Today I need a little help. My editor emailed me saying I have to change the title of Kindred Book 2 because there is already another book coming out with the same title. Oye!
Coming up with a "reel 'em in" title is not my strength. The second book picks up exactly where the first book ends. I can't give anything away because I don't want to spoil the first one for readers. Let's just say things are about to get very ugly for Serenity and Cyrus.
Originally, book 2 was titled Keeper of the Flame. It's a reference to the Egyptian Goddess Sekhmet. The goddess protected the good and annihilated the wicked.
Flame is also used by Kindred in reference to one's life. Based on the way things unfold for Serenity and Cyrus, it was an apt title.
So, I've decided to let you all help me decide. Below are some contender replacement titles.
Vote for one in the comments section or even suggest a new one. If I pick a new one recommended by a commenter, that person will receive a shout-out on Facebook, Twitter, my blog of course, and a huge thank you in the acknowledgement section of the book.
A. Curse of the Blessed
B. Lady of Flame
C. Guardian of the Flame
D. Leave a suggestion in the comments.
I sent out my first newsletter this morning. I offerred 3 e-ARCs to the first three people who requested one. Within less than an hour, I had about ten mails asking for one.
The lucky winners are:
Celina K., Holly, & Isabelle F.
So what should be the title of Kindred Book 2?
