Some people fear change, some trudge through it with the feeling of “whatever, it’s out of my control” and some thrive, thirst for and love it. I’m definitely a thriver/thirster for/lover of change and I’ve always been that way. I get antsy. I like shaking things up with wild abandon (but with a purpose). Don’t get me wrong, I’m not impulsive. I like my change meaningful, powerful and exciting.
The change I’m about to announce falls into those three categories.
My debut young adult novel EVERYTHING’S NOT LOST has undergone a meaningful, powerful and exciting change.
It has a NEW title.
A title that embodies the book in one word. The word needed to be meaningful, powerful and exciting. That’s a lot of pressure on one word. Don’t you think? The word had to entice potential readers and capture the essence of the entire book. Preh-sure.
My editor, Annette Pollert, and the brilliant team at Simon Pulse came up with this new title and I love it. It’s perfect in every way. I can’t thank them enough for their continued dedication and hard work on my behalf. I still can’t believe this is all happening to me.
In addition to loving change I also thoroughly enjoy a good surprise. So, stop by the Dear Teen Me site on Thursday, March 3rd to read my letter and find out the new title.
