Titles

Okay, I never title anything I write until I'm finished. Mainly because I think it is harder than writing the story/book itself. But it's never too early to start thinking about therm anyway. I'm working on the sequel to Blood-Bound, so I was wondering: How do you title a sequel? Should it have an obvious connection to the title of the first novel? How about the same number of words? Or start with the same letter? Am I making this harder than it has to be?

  1. i think you are making it a little too hard. i think having a similar cadence or some tying factor is useful, but unnecessary. i think the key is to give the book the name that fits. i'm terrible at naming things though...

  2. Mom, you are OCD. I BLAME YOU for this. Vic, I agree that making it fit is most important, that's why it's the last step for me. I usually don't know what direction my story will take until it's already written. :)
