I find it funny that I can’t remember titles of books I’ve read or movies I’ve seen, even if I loved them.  I know that sounds odd for a writer to say, but alas it’s true.  But for some reason the practice of coming up with so many titles for Heir Force posts doesn’t seem to be too difficult.  I know the titles aren’t anything fancy, but for the most part, they seem to come pretty readily.

How do you choose titles for your projects?  Do you find it easy or hard?


I also want to thank all of you who are liking and following me!  I am having fun with the story and watching it come along.

What are these white things?” Kate knew what they were, of course, but they caught her off guard. It was way to early in the year to see white flakes drifting to the ground. And accumulating.

“Huh?” Spencer sat up, rubbing the sleep from his eyes.

Kate repeated her question.
