As the first flowers came up in the garden (bloodroot), I started working on round #2 with my editor at Knopf.
I've got a new title: One Came Home. Hope you like it. I do. It fits the mood of the story, the story's themes, and the phrase is in the manuscript. (As a reader of novels, I always want the title to be IN the story somewhere.) Can't be sure it'll make it onto the cover of the book -- the publisher will make the final decision, but I can say that both my editor and my agent like this title. That's a good sign!
Okay, onward! Time to make this book even better!
