A Rose by Another Name?

FIRST, THE NEWS:  I have received a contract offer for Avalon, S.C.

(pausing a moment to allow you to celebrate wildly and raucously)

NEXT, THE QUESTION:  The Soul Mate Publishing Acquisitions Editor asked: “Is Avalon, S.C. the real title, or is it still a working title?”

Aha!  Good question.  I’d gotten so used to calling it that, I’d forgotten the possibility that there was going to be another name.  To be honest, I haven’t been able to think of one I like better.

But maybe you can.

So, blog community.  Submit your suggestions as comments here.  If the Acquisitions Editor and I see any we like better than Avalon, S.C., why, you’ll have the honor of naming the book!

To help you with your thinking process, I’m including a little photo montage of the novel.

Avalon 1Not Avalon, SC–there’s no hill!–but at least it gives the feel on an island off the coast of South Carolina

  1. Congrats on the contract! Don’t have champagne but will raise a glass of pinot grigio to toast your success. . . Must cogitate on alternative titles.

  2. Congratulations! Three books! Definitely needs a toast and a happy dance.

    As for a title, writing the book blurb now is a great idea. I like “Avalon, SC.” It accentuates the Arthurian connections, but the blurb might suggest other possibilities.

    • See, I like it too. And it stays with the Avalon theme. But then again I agree that the blurb might flush something else out, too. Is Strange Bedfellows going to stay with that title? What about Sir Kay? Do you have anything firm for him?
