Title, Title, Who's Got A Title?

Me! I do!

You see, the third book in the Demon's Lexicon trilogy used to have a title, but then my editor (The Wise and Lovely Karen) said 'Well, but after my wise and lovely edits, the title no longer fits.'

'That's true,' I said, and wrote out a list of titles.

'Hmmm...' said TW&LK. 'Let me think about it.'

The time went on. I transitioned from casual, dignified inquired to piteous scritching at My Lovely Editor's door. 'Can I be titled yet?' I implored.

And as time passed, it emerged I had a clear favourite. But it would have to be sales and marketing's favourite as well...

And it is.

Today my editor said 'You can be titled, duchess.'

The third and final book in the Demon's Lexicon trilogy is

THE DEMON'S SURRENDER

I love it, because more than one demon does quite a bit of surrendering. (Yes, especially the most important demon.) Plus, it's ominous, which I feel it should be. And it fits in with the rest of the series, which not every title we discussed did!

Plus now I get to refer to 2011 as the 'Year of Surrender.' Saucy.

So excited. Because I'm going to go against my instincts and interpret that as semi-happily as can imagine for Nick. And they all fit together so well! <3

I am pleased to see both positive and negative interpretations! Both are kind of true. Because it is always a matter of who you surrender to: Nick quite enjoys surrendering to certain people.

That's fantastic!

I'm especially pleased to hear of a title and other progress because I finally have gotten access to your first book, and when I finish it (next week I shall be at the library again!) it is only a matter of time before I speed through Covenant, and then what shall I do?

Curse you, months, for not yet being July!

This is indeed a saucy title, Madame. I look forward to it. In fact, i shall probably annoy everyone in the vicinity by looking forward to it so vocally.

I have to admit I will be slightly disappointed when it does not turn out to be a bodice ripper romance featuring a demon as the heroine. Also I have the best mental images of terrible romance covers for that now.

OoooooooOOOOOOOOOoooooo I DO like that, I really do. Even if it makes me think of Mae bending Nick backward over a table with his shirt falling off one shoulder, which...

Okay, that really needs to be fanart. Make it so, Marmelade Fishes.
