What goes into the author's thinking as he/she selects a book title?
Does the title come easily, or is it a difficult process?
This is the subject of today's blog tour and I am grateful to have Jan Sikes as my hostess. She is an award winning author of three books and a member of Rave Reviews Book Club.
Did the titles of her books come easily?
Novy's Son, The Selfish Genius was a title for which I struggled. I also knew there would not be many, if any other books with a similar name. I believe this title lets the reader know the premise of the story.
So you might be asking, "Who is Novy?' or "What is Novy?"
Here is a short excerpt from the book that will answer your question:
I wanted the bronze medallion of our dad when he was a young child. The medallion was known as Novy, the endearing name my grandfather gave my dad. Biographies about my grandfather often refer to it. When I was a student at the University of New Mexico, I had it framed as a Christmas gift to Dad. From his words and the look in his eyes, I knew for once I had done something of which he was very proud.
I invite you to go to amzn.to/25HsWky where you will find Novy's Son at the reduced Kindle price of 0.99 from June 6-13.
