New Title

My very first paranormal book I wrote was hard to title... very hard. It ended up being Chasing Normal and that didn't sound very paranormal-ish, but it was all I could think of.

As we got further into the publishing process we realized that it did indeed need a new title.

But what to call it???

It took a few days and a lot of help from others, but we finally came up with a new title.

And I LOVE it. It's perfect.

What is it, you might ask? Well I will tell you....


EEEk. So fun. Here is the blurb if you haven't read it.

"Whoever said, 'parents are always right' really should have thought that one through. After all, my mom believes in vampires. Go figure."

All Abigail Thompson ever wanted was to be considered normal. Instead, she ended up a loner with a vampire–obsessed mom and a stamp labeling her the resident freak of Karma, California.

When bad boy Caleb Evans saves Abby from a mean girl attack straight out of a “B” movie, Abby’s own karma starts to improve. Maybe “normal” could become her way of life, after all. But Caleb isn’t the only boy to notice her. Once newcomer Gabriel Chambers becomes Abby’s new best friend, she finds herself trapped between two boys, both holding secrets. And when Abby learns sometimes things really do go bump in the night, she discovers one of those secrets could just get her killed.

How much do titles sway the books you buy?

  1. Should I admit that covers have more of an effect on me than titles? Hmmmm....biggest factor lately has been the author name. Gonna read anything you write girl!


  2. I'm influenced by the author first and I am a sucker for pretty covers so that's second on the list. Title comes third usually!

  3. :-) That sounds awesome. And I love the new title. Usually the author and the blurb are the first two things I notice, then title, then cover.

  4. Titles do have an effect of me at the library. Usually I'm searching through for contemporary in the YA section and I'm looking at the spines. So if I see one that sounds more contemp versus fantasy, I'll grab it.

    Doesn't make me want to read it necessarily, more just to notice it.
