Pick the Title for Book Six

Happy holidays!

I love this time of year. My husband and I always take off the last two weeks so we can spend time with the kids from Christmas through the first week of January. It’s generally a time of sleeping in, playing games, eating a lot, and just being together. It’s the best two weeks of the year.

This year has been no different except I’m spending a lot of time writing. I have big goals for 2014 and writing every day will help me achieve them.

As I am putting the finishing touches on the final book in the Sharing Space series, I am struggling with a title. It’s the last one, after all, and it has to say so much. My husband, who is intimately aware of what happens in the final book and how it ends, has been trying to help me come up with a title, but we can’t agree on anything. I think we’re both way too close to it and there may be some serious over-thinking going on.

Then we got the bright idea to turn it over to you guys. You’re invested. You know the characters. Why not let you decide? Then we thought we’d make it into a contest because free shit. I mean, who doesn’t like free shit?

So, here’s how it will work:

  • You can submit as many two-word titles for book six as you want.
  • You can leave them in the comments below or on the Facebook status linking this post.
  • You can email them to nina@projectfandom.com if you don’t want to list them publicly.
  • You have until midnight on January 1st, 2014. (PT)
  • I’ll pick my top three favorites and create a Facebook poll where you guys will vote. The title with the most votes by the designated deadline will win.

The title MUST be two words only.

The winner will receive a signed paperback copy of the complete Sharing Space series AND will have a character named after him/her in my next book series scheduled for a May, 2014 release.

Now, you may be wondering how you can think of a title for a story you know nothing about. I got you, boo. Here’s a brief synopsis (no spoilers!) for the final book:

A new year brings a new set of challenges for Chloe and Patrick. Their relationship is still showing signs of strain due to the tragic loss they’ve suffered. When a major opportunity for Patrick leaves Chloe feeling disrespected, she makes a difficult decision she believes is best for both of them. 

Distance and the harsh spotlight of fame leave them vulnerable to outside forces dedicated to keeping them apart forever. Can they admit their mistakes and find their way back to one another? If so, will it be too late?

There you go. Help a sistah out.

Keep reading. I’m writing.

In Case You Hadn’t Heard, Book Five Is Here

You would think this would get easier. You would be wrong.

It’s 1:28am PST and I’ve been up since yesterday, 7:45am. Partly because I’m sick – I get sick right before Christmas, always – but mainly because Winter Wishes (Sharing Space #5) is now available and I have nervous tummy.

It doesn’t matter how many 5 and 4-star reviews the first four books have, I still think this is all a fluke and that everyone who liked the previous books will suddenly think they’re all shit. And demand their money back. As if awakened from a spell, they’ll flick through their Kindles and wonder how the fuck those stupid books got there.

This is very much like sending your kids off to school, out into the world, and hoping that people like them. That people get them. And that if they don’t, they’ll at least still be kind to them because they’re your babies.

So, book five is here. I really hope you like my baby.

She’s going to kill me for telling you this.

My best friend and I love to read together.

We’ve known each other since we were 13. Maybe 12. It’s been a very long time.

But we still love to read together.

In the first apartment I had on my own (a two-bedroom in Bed Stuy with a friend from high school) my best friend and I — both in our late teens — used to lie in my bed, on our backs, and read the same paperback. Not two copies of the same paperback, but the same book. Sometimes we’d wait to turn the pages until we were both ready, but most times if one got a bit ahead it was okay to keep going. This would require us to switch sides, but we made it work. Books I remember reading with her like that are The Firm by John Grisham and one of the Anne Rice vampire book. Maybe The Vampire Lestat.

In our 20s, while living in separate states, we’d read the same book at the same time (separate copies, of course) and make dates to meet online to talk about it. This was before fancy texting and Facebook. I’m talking old-school AOL Instant Messenger.

Read to chapter 3 and let’s meet back here in an hour.

Are you done yet? What’s taking you so long?

I just finished. OMG! What do you want to talk about first?

We would do this all day on a Saturday. All day. You can tell this was before married life and babies came along. What I wouldn’t give for an uninterrupted Saturday to read with my best friend now.

And now, in our late 30s (Shut up. Late 30s are the new early 20s. Or something.), we still do it. But now we have Kindles, kids, husbands, jobs, and side projects. So, our reading dates look like this:

Text With Sophie

We now need two days to commit to one chapter.

Almost 40 and I am so excited to be reading a book with my best friend again.
