Creating a Catchy Novel Title


Personally, I like my projects to have a title before I start writing, some people don’t feel this necessary. My debut novel, currently being queried, was originally called Drift.

Here is a collection of some of the covers I have created for it over the years (there are more).

You will also notice one is called Wipeout as originally  there was two books but during a brutal edit, I cut loads , they became one.

I have recently changed the title of Drift to Jewel of the sea.  Here is the current cover and can be read on Wattpad.

  1. I LOOOOOVE making mock covers for my WIPs! So much fun…and also a great way to procrastinate 😉 I’m also one of those people who usually comes up with the title really early in the process. Like, well before I start writing. I recently made a (relatively) minor change in the title of my fantasy WIP (from “Old Blood” to “Blood of Old”) and it caused a surprising amount of anxiety! Best of luck with your querying 🙂
