I hate settling, so I'm still deciding on that stupid title of mine. I've narrowed it down. Ultimately I do not think that it's going to make a huge difference in the long run. Half the books I read, unfortunately I don't recall the title unless it's a stand alone novel.
There's probably been a book using every title imaginable. You don't want to overuse the obvious words: Dark, Dead, Grave, ugh. Whatever I choose will be mine. This is a hobby, not a career. I go to work every day and earn a very respectable living, have wonderful benefits and a retirement plan.
Doesn't mean I won't try everything before I die.
Meanwhile, I have connected with some authors who are an amazing group of people. There are some hilarious stories on good reviews, bad reviews and everything in between.
Secondly, now that I have time, I'm slowly browsing through stock photo sites and adding items to my cart which I'll consider for future books. The internet is a wonderful thing. Doesn't seem along ago when dreams of being everything from a musician, author, singer, actor, all seemed limited to who you knew in the industry and luck. Now with social websites and platforms that allow everyone to share, it gives a huge opportunity for people to be exposed to so much variety. Some for the better, some for the worse.
But ultimately, everyone has a chance to be heard.
