A Title For My New Novel

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.


  1. It also features in the early children's rhyme
    Row, Row, Row Your Boat
    and can be sad to be a central conept of the idea of Maya.
    A good title is really important. Good luck.

  2. Nah, that's not the cover art, that's just something I whipped up.
