After months of searching for the right title for my new novel, it finally has one. Part of the problem with titling this book for me was that it's such a special novel. It's brimming over with the best imagery I've written to date and is such a powerful and heartfelt story that I felt the title needed to convey the mood of the book. With the help of my wonderful editor and publisher, I think it now does:
Life Is But A Dream
It evokes the character's state of mind as she struggles with reality, but also captures the sense of wonder that she has toward life. It's also a play on the Lewis Carroll quote that opens the story...."Is all our life, then, but a dream / Seen faintly in the golden gleam."
The book will be out some time next year. I will of course be more specific once I know the release date.
