Battling Titles

A book’s title is very important so I always take great care with my own novels. It’s one of the big decisions I have to make when writing. The ‘working title’ is the title you use when you’re not completely sure what you are going to call your book and you are still working on it. Sometimes a title is obvious like The Garden of Empress Cassia. I felt that that book could not have had any other name. I am in the process of writing a young adult novel. My protagonist’s name is Mirabel so that is what the novel’s ‘working title’ is at the moment. I’ve been thinking the title could be Mirabel and the Night Star, Little Paradise or The Scent of Butterflies but I’m still searching for other possibilities and will do say until I’m finished. I’m leaning towards Mirabel and the Night Star for now but only time will tell which title the novel will end up with. It can be very frustrating at times.
