Blueberry is now Moonlight Secrets!

Major big announcement:

The Hotel of Blueberry Goodness has been retitled. The book is now called The Summer of Moonlight Secrets.

After revisions (which we're in the last rounds of), it became clear that the story had taken a path different from the proposal. We loved Blueberry, but we needed something that hinted more strongly at the mood and angle of the story. The hotel is still there, and so is the blueberry goodness, but now you know there's moonlight and secrets!

The new title works. And I'll come around to loving it. But crap, I hate to see Blueberry go. I bragged about that title.

Oh, Stephen! It was very hard to let go of Blueberry. And hard to let go of at least one other title that came up during the brainstorming. : {

Thanks for the good words!

Well, I did love the Blueberry title, but I also like the idea of secrets. Sort of mysterious, you know? I'm liking it! I know, I'm fickle.

Oh I like the new title, too! (I was mighty fond of the Blueberry Goodness bit, but I do understand title changes.)

Oh I sooo like secrets and Moonlight ones seem all the more hidden away.

I think it's great!!!

Love the new titled, but I will seriously miss Blueberry - you must use that title at some point in your career.

How about a sequel?

More Secrets at the Hotel of Blueberry Goodness During the Summertime While the Moon is Shining

No, don't thank me, I'm happy to do you a favor.

Thanks, you guys, for the great comments! It helps me shore up the loss of Blueberry!

Stephen--
OMG! Almost spluttered my cappuccino when I read your comment. White capris on, too. HA! Thanks for starting my day off with a laugh--I love it!

I do like "blueberry." Maybe you can use it for another story.

Wow, they're both nice titles.

Summer of Moonlight Secrets. Certainly very evocative.

Hope you are doing well.

The new title is beautiful, Danette! I know how hard the titling process can be and how easy it is to get attached. Blueberry Goodness was wonderful too & I am saluting it! It won't be forgotten. And I'm sure the story will be amazing, whatever it is called in the end. :)
