RockStar Going Down and other titles.

It's the eve before my release and time for everything to go wrong. Honestly, that used to be my story. These days I save my stress to sweat the larger things.

So let's talk titles. Most authors agonize over blurbs but not me. It's the title that kills me. It's the first thing that grabs your attention and draws you in. The nearly naked man on the cover helps.
I like my titles to have more than one meaning, too. The entire Circle of Sanity series revolves around the word Sanity. It doesn't mean what you might initially think it means. It's capitalized on purpose and you have to read book one or four to understand why.

So here is my pre-release nugget the "S" in Rockstar is capitalized with intent, too. There is more than one star in the book. So, when I paired my Rockstar with a Star I got RockStar. Don't get me started on all the ways the pair are going down.

My next series the Fisher Men took forever. My original plan was along the lines of Hooks, Lines, Sunk. To keep that order would make a terrible mismatch with the story inside not to mention it has four books in the series. I did a google search on fishing terms, but nothing screamed "sexy."

I finally decided to use pictures in place of words. Each book cover can be read more than one way and each way would make sense. Sadly, I can't use pictures on ISBN and ASIN numbered titles so I had to pick one but I can't wait for my readers to see all of the other meanings.

Until next time,
Rebel Nicks O'Dey
