We Have a Title!

Finally! The book formerly known as The Waif is. . . .drumroll, please:

The Good Father

After all the hard work my readers put into helping me come up with a title, the publisher finally decided to go with one I suggested. I’m grateful to all of you for your creativity and energy. I like this title and it fits the book perfectly. When I turn in this manuscript on Monday, I’m happy it won’t say ????? at the top.

    I’m really happy with that title too! Titles can be difficult, but even though I’m not sure what the book is about, I really like that one.

    Titles intrigue me…..when looking for a book I am always drawn to the title!

    Hi Diane,
    It seems like every good title for the story you told us about I can’t wait to read this one too. When is it supposed to be in stores? Thank you and I will continue to read you, you’re definitely my number 1 author.

    I like the title. I’m so glad they listened to you and selected the name you chose.

    Chantal, I don’t know the release date, but I’m guessing spring of ’12. Margo, still revising. Not getting much sleep! Must be done by Monday. A week later. . . off to the beach, and wow, I cannot wait!
