Thank you, again, to everyone, who took the time to submit their suggestions for the title of the third book in my K-9 trilogy. We now have a probable title: WHEN I FOUND YOU.
The reason I say probable is because there’s still a chance that it might change as it works its way through the final steps of the process. I apologize for the delay in announcing the outcome, but the selection took a little longer than we anticipated.
We had narrowed in on a couple of suggested titles, and most particularly WHEN LOVE TAKES FLIGHT. I liked the meaning and the connection to the airport setting through the reference to flight. I also appreciated that this title was suggested by four individuals!
The process is a collaborative one between author and publisher for good reason. I thought WHEN LOVE TAKES FLIGHT might be the chosen title until my publisher pointed out something that hadn’t occurred to me. We know that Heartwarming books always have a happy-ever-after ending, and it was suggested that “taking flight” could be interpreted to mean someone is running away from love—a less than happy outcome. :-(
As such, my editor and I considered a number of other options and came up with I FOUND YOU.
WHEN LOVE TAKES FLIGHT was an excellent contender and because I am truly appreciative of the time people took to offer their suggestions, I will declare the four people suggesting it as “winners,” and they will each receive all three books in the trilogy and be mentioned in the acknowledgments section of WHEN I FOUND YOU.
So, without further delay, here are the four winners:
- Summer Halls,
- Laurie Iglesias,
- June Smalls, and
- Jill Weatherholt.
Summer, Laurie, June and Jill, I have contacted you by e-mail.
Thank you, again, for everyone who took the time to submit a suggestion.
Best wishes for the holiday season!
