Some great pointers, Nola. The Invention of Wings by Sue Kidd Monk - is a good book about slavery in 19th USA. When I saw the title, I thought it was about something else entirely (either the invention of planes, or a focus on flight in birds, reptiles, bats etc.). There is a passing mention of the phrase in a metaphorical sense but it din't really gel for me.
And I love Rainbows on my Wellies as a title - would pick that book up :)
Thanks for a great series :)
Thanks Jenny. I remember seeing Sue Monk Kidd's 'The Secret Life of Bees' before I knew what it was about. The story sounds really interesting, but the title would have made me think it was a book about beekeeping :) I guess there's always a balance between coming up with an interesting title, but also meeting the expectations of readers.
And we might have to at least write some short stories called 'A Rainbow on My Wellies' or 'Nightmare on Ghoul Reef'. Would be interesting to see how they turned out. Thanks for your comment. :)
Cool - I can feel a anthology or two coming on lol.
LOL - It could be bigger than 'Year of Pulses' :)
Oh, how exciting!
Start writing now, Kirsten. It's bound to be a bestseller :)
