Next Big Thing

Had to share this post from another writer on her novel-in-progress.

Her working title is Perigee Moon, which is the technical term for when the moon is right on the horizon and appears gigantic. It’s a very evocative image.

Titles are so important in publishing. In nonfiction, authors have to get the topic and approach across with the title. In fiction, authors have to evoke some emotional response from readers…and Perigee Moon does that perfectly.

    Thank you for this post! I am so glad to hear this. I have had a couple of people say “Perigee, what’s that?!!” It’s been suggested that I change the title. But the Big Moon is part of the story so I’m keeping it.
