I started excitedly telling people about my new (and first) YA hi-lo novel to be published, Brom’s Quest, in the Dragon Speaker series, and I’d have people say “What? Brom?”. That made me realize that maybe Brom’s Quest wasn’t the best title. Especially for reluctant readers!
So I mentioned it to the publisher, and he agreed. And he just came up with a title I *love*. The Last Dragon. So I think that’s my new title!
I thought the title was firmed up, and here I am, only a week and a day from having signed my contract, and we’re changing the title! But it feels right to do, and I feel happy about it. I want the best title–the best *book*–that I can create. I want something that will grab readers, not turn them away.
So–what do you think of the new title? Does it grab you more than the old one?
