I'm not talking about food. Because ewwwww, I mean really.
I'm talking book titles.
As an author...how do you feel about using a book title that someone else has used? Or do you become peeved when another author does it to you?
Let's face it. There are only so many titles out there. Many authors will use characters names in the titles to differentiate them. Some will use some obscure reasoning or method to do the same.
But what do you do when the perfect title for your book is already taken?
And how do you, as readers, feel about it?
I don't like dipping into the title pool and using another author's title. But I seriously have the best idea for a book. And the damn title is already taken. It's not an odd title. But the author is fairly popular. And now I'm trying to figure out what I've got going on here. I wrote over 6000 words on it today. And the story is simply flowing. Gotta love it.
So let me know what you think. I believe I'll use the title I have right now. Because, to me, it clicks.
