  1. I like The Labyrinth House best. Unless you are self-publishing, won’t the publisher have a lot of say in the choice of title — or is that mainly true of magazine/newspaper pieces? Maybe I should ask — are you self-publishing? I still have to print out and read the first chapter.

  2. Gee, I don’t know. I think I’d have to read your novel to figure out what would be most appropriate. I have the worst time coming up with titles. I feel your pain! And since a publisher would pick the title in the end, I hate having to come up with something in the first place – but you need something.

    I am going to tell you this before you send it out to agents. ‘Lightning’ does not have an ‘e’ in it. Don’t feel bad – really! You know how I found out? When I met with an agent! She had my first chapter, and in my first paragraph I had misspelled that word, and she told me in the meeting. Just shoot me now. But I’m so glad you get to benefit from my mistake. It’s a tricky word to spell.

  3. Shelli,
    I have forever spelled that word wrong. It goes on my long list of words I can’t spell no matter how many times I check–like my brain refuses to accept the correct spelling. And here’s me an English teacher!

    Oh well. Consider it corrected.
