Romance Writers Report: The Art of Choosing the Perfect Book Title

The May 2015 edition of Romance Writers Report, the monthly magazine for members of the Romance Writers of America, published an article I wrote about how to choose the perfect title for your book. It described my experience choosing a title for my debut romance novella, “In His Corner,” published by Lyrical Press (April 2015).

  1. Great article Cindy and congrats on the nod from Romance Writers of America. It’s always nice to be recognized for your work.

    • Thanks much for your comment and for visiting. Love the name of your blog–love the positive vibes!

  2. Great article. I can’t tell you how many times I changed the title of my first book. When it was published a year ago? There was one other Better Than Perfect on Amazon but it was a nonfiction management guide. Now there are at least three other fiction titles, most also romance. But what can you do? I guess that means it was a good title. And I like ” In His Corner.” It relates to boxing but not in a cheesy way.

    • Hi Kristina. “Better than Perfect” is indeed a great title; no wonder it’s popular. How is your experience sharing the same title with other books–does it confuse some readers or does it reinforce the appeal of your book? That would make a great blog post(: Thanks for visiting!

  3. Congrats on the RWR article! I think finding the right title is so important and I love trying my hand at it. Like you, Cindy, with my the first book in my Northstar series, I thought I had. Then the publisher wanted to re-title because they were coming out with a book that had the same as my original title. I’m glad they pushed me to search for a new one, because the new one hits on the theme of the story much better.
    I like the title of your story and I’m looking forward to reading it.
