It’s time for me to bite the bullet (we’re going all out for clichés today) and ask you brilliant, creative, honest people the question I’ve been dreading:
Does Can’t Live Without actually work as a title?
I cannot answer this question myself. I’ve been working on this book, on and off, for over six years now, and it’s always been called Can’t Live Without, so I can’t imagine it as anything else. But, as publication approaches, I have to consider the possibility that another title might be better.
A comment on a cover art review site said of CLW: ‘The title doesn’t even look like a title.’ I don’t know if they mean the typeface or the wording, but it gave me pause for thought.
Honestly, what do you think? Suggestions for alternatives? Stick with it? I want the cover to say: ‘Read me, I’m fab and interesting, and chick-litty, and you’ll be glad you took the time.’ And the title is a big part of this.
Looking forward to reading your comments…
