keep holding on

It’s that time again, friendly neighbors. Revisions of my new book are done. Copyediting has begun. I’m shifting gears, getting ready to start writing book seven.


But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Today is all about my sixth book, which will be out next year. It already has a Goodreads page. I should be able to share the cover and synopsis with you soon. And the pub date might be finalized later this month. For now, I’m stoked to share this with you: the title of my new book is Keep Holding On.

Coming up with good titles isn’t easy for me. I usually find it easier to write an entire book than to think up a winning title. When I’m working on a new book, I have a corresponding notebook that goes with it. Each notebook has a page where I brainstorm titles. Keep Holding On was one of the first titles I wrote down for this book. Then I worried that it was too obvious. But it’s actually perfect. All of my titles are three words. And they all have multiple connotations. Keep Holding OnΒ reflects the relationship between my main character and her soul mate. It also reflects the tone of the story. So I hope you like it, too!

I’m sure you know which song inspired this title. The Glee cover is a big, sparkly warm fuzzy. Kind of how I want this book to make you feel.

You’re not alone.
Just stay strong.

    I love the title of your book, it does give a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. And with soul mates involved, it seems like the best title.
