For several months in 2014 I had a feeling, no… scratch that, an urge to alter the title of my book original called HOPE. The current title seemed very ambiguous, overused within the world of media, and to be honest it felt a little ehhh. At the same time a name I gave to one of my main characters was basically screaming at me from the depths of the short novel’s pages. The name that represents an importance so great that the book’s summary is overshadowed by it.
In my mind I could hear the name being called out, yelled, posted, printed and sought after. HOPE was not really doing it for me or my current beta readers, and once they did read the book the focus was clearly on this character. I am hoping the title change pays off and clarifies the book’s “soul” sort of speak.
