I’m starting a new book and don’t have a title, and not one character name. All I have is a premise.
Normally this wouldn’t bother me, but I’m feeling a little insecure about this project. This untitled book is a historical. I’ve never written anything other than contemporary. The subject matter is heavy and I want everything to be perfect.
The first think that attracts me to a book is it’s title, next the cover art. If I like the character’s names, (and the premise), I settle back with a smile on my face and look forward to a good read.
I know eventually I’ll have a title and character names, but I’d like to know how you, the writer, come up with title and character names for your new books. I’d also like to know how you, the reader, feel about names. For me, it almost makes the book.
