Titles: Go For Launch!

*First: Have you commented on each of the Spring Break posts over at The Daily Dose? There's a $75 Amazon gift card, copy of SHADE and other awesome stuff up for grabs there if you do! When you're done here, pop over there and enter! You must comment on each Spring Break post to be entered (mine was Friday!). Right now your odds of winning the grand prize or one of the runner up prizes is AWESOME.

And now:
We have a title for book 2 in the 13 to Life series. For now. ;-)

My editor, Michael, mentioned we have a title for book 2. WOOT!

Some of you may recall me on Twitter brainstorming titles. Heck, some of YOU were kind enough to jump in and help with the brainstorming (special thanks to @LynseyNewton @LovesSam @jennzahling @MattReeves17 @RachelleGardner). We went through a bunch of titles, didn't we? (Good times, good times. ;-)

And it seems none of ours made the final cut. Although I think we had some awesome ideas, this is one of those things that I readily hand over to the professionals. And the head of Marketing (a fabulous and brilliant gal) and the publisher himself agreed on what to dub book 2.

And they may be nixed, too.

Michael pointed out the title we currently have (nope, my lips are zipped--for now) for book 2 is subject to change based on how it's received at launch presentations.

What?

I know, I know. It's an interesting way things are done in publishing. Until my series got picked up I had no idea so much went on behind the scenes.

Sunday let's look at book 1 and 2's chronology from the writer's perspective (readers, avert thine eyes and pay no attention to the man behind the curtain--sometimes it's best just to enjoy a final product ;-).

Hope you're having a great weekend!
