A short piece I wrote about the frustrations of coming up with the title for my books.

As I'm nearing the end of the story, I realized I really need to start thinking of a title. "Lane's Story" is a great working title, but it's a bit boring. Or as I titled it on here, "Rogue Vampire" which although more catching still doesn't seem quite right.

There's two parts of the creative process (arguably also the marketing process) that I loathe. 1: I have great difficulty coming up with titles. Occasionally I stumble onto a gem like "Between Darkness & Light" but otherwise, I find it quite maddening. 2: Book Blurbs. I have trouble with these as well.

I try to match a good title with the character or story theme.But I find myself vexed at the moment. I envy those whose titles just come to them.

The small plus is that I think I have part of the blurb figured out. The negative is that I don't have the second part of it sorted or a title.

Do others find it this difficult as well?
