                                                  BOOK TITLES

                     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 where you will find Novy's Son at the reduced Kindle price of 0.99 from June 6-13.
