As most of you know, I recently found out that I was going to have to change the title of the book formerly known as Exposure Therapy. So I was tasked with the job of coming up with something that was more romantic but that was still sexy and that had series expanding potential. Easy peasy, right?
I went through a few days of brainstorming both alone, with agent, and with other writers on Twitter. I then submitted five or six possibilities. Well, this week my editor came back and said that though she liked one suggestion, she really was hoping for something more romantic. And we needed the info stat because her meeting with the art and sales department for my cover was yesterday. Eek!
So back to the drawing board (and to Twitter) I went on Valentine's night. My poor husband was totally ignored, lol, while I came up with another list to send the editor. By the way, thanks so much to Jamie Wesley, Julie Cross, Tiffany Reisz, Teri Anne Stanley, Dawn Alexander, and Alyssa Palmer for all the brainstorming help. : )
Anyhoo, I sent off the list to Kate (my editor) late Monday night. Then lo and behold, I had a wonderful email first thing Tuesday morning.
We have a title!!!! Woot! Kate loved a few different ones on my list, but after checking in with the marketing department, they decided on the two that would be best for book one AND book two.
:D I heart it. I suggested it because the song Crash Into Me really does fit my book, but that title is already taken by a YA. (Lyrics for the song are at the bottom of the post if you're interested). So yay! I have a title. And so does the second book. Book two will be called MELT INTO YOU. I love that one too. So I'm super pleased and beyond excited. It's starting to feel real!
