I Dubbed Thee...
by W. Lynn Chantale

What’s in a name? I bet you’ve heard that before. I’ve seen that tagline on everything from blogs about naming characters to baby naming books. And yet there are still many authors who haven’t realized how important it is to be unique.

I didn’t understand the importance of a title at first, but I’ll get to that in a second. Most of us spend months or sometimes even years developing our babies, our manuscripts. We toil, cry, get chastised, and finally get our precious babies all prettied up, only to slap on a title that someone else has chosen, or worse, several hundred someone’s have chosen.

Not good. As authors, we should want our books to stand out, and aside from the cover, the title is the way to go.

Now back to my title snafu. I made the unfortunate mistake of titling my first self-published novel ‘Dark Knight’. My hero was a brooding ex-Navy SEAL/U.S. Marshal who had trouble expressing his emotions. You know, a typical Alpha male. But I wish someone would’ve said, “Hey, that’s the title of a Batman movie!’

Lesson learned. Since then I’ve learned to Google. My titles may be similar to some others out there, but they are no longer identical. If a person tosses any of my titles in the search bar at Amazon, they get me. Not 12 pages of another book, movie, or (God forbid)  a feminine hygiene product by the same name.

So, the next time you’re titling that manuscript, make sure to choose something as unique as your characters.


Seducing His Wife
Get Your Copy
Haunted by nightmares, Sheridan Sinclair just wants to get through one night without reliving the terrible accident that led to her miscarriage. And she longs for the arms of the man who betrayed her. Matthew Sinclair has always loved his wife, but when she refuses to speak to him after her accident, he's left to wonder what went wrong. When a stolen kiss ignites their forgotten passion, he'll use their love as a means to get her home and in his bed again. Will a husband’s plan of seduction be enough to heal a wife’s broken heart?


Breaking Delia's Rules
Get Your Copy
Delia has just three rules for dating. First, a man should never assume he’s the only one. Second, he must stick to his day and time. Third, and most important, no sex. Following the rules has never been a problem until she meets the hottie from the pool.
Jace has only days to make every moment count, but the more time he spends with Delia, the more he realizes she may be the one. With the cruise winding down and their attraction growing, there’s only one course of action left to take. Can he convince Delia that rules are meant to be broken?



Thank you for joining us here today Ms. Chantale! It is a pleasure to get to know you and more about your books!

Readers, remember to leave Ms. Chantale some love and a valid email. I promise it's not to send you sizzling love letter but to enter your name in the hat for the giveaway of Breaking Delia's Rules! Good Luck to all!

  5. I so understand the picking a name thing. At work, it is sometimes my job to come up with a name for a new product. I can spend hours googling trying to find something that is not going to result in a lawsuit. In the words of Rizzo from Grease "Some people are so touchy".
