I've just sent my completed manuscript off to a professional editor. natually I'm anxius about his feedback, as a first time author, that that's not giving me as many wobbles as the thorny question of title and author. I can't move forward until I get this settled.
I've had the title of my memoir firmly in my mind from 2008, well before I started writing. It seems appropriate. Trouble is, in the meantime there are lots of entries for this name on Google and a few books via Amazon. Most of my preferred alternatives are also taken. Should I change my title?
I've also got a problem with my name.
1. It's the same as an illustrious BBC reporter and she fills pages of Google, and she's written books. 2. If one day I change my current name (via naturalisation if I'm lucky) I'm going to see my old married name on the book forever. Shheeesssh. Do I change my name to one I might have in the future?
Would really appreciate your advice
