I have published three novels thus far, and I have learned much along the way, especially from the mistakes I made. Hopefully, I didn’t make the same mistakes in my latest novel, Heaven’s Conflict, The Rise and Fall of Angels, A Novel, published October 1, 2014. The title of my first novel, Generation Z, Birth of the Zompire, which is a vampire love story, is simply too long. As readers try to find me on Amazon or elsewhere, my novel doesn’t come up until they type the last letter in Zompire. So, it’s hard to find. I could have made the second phrase a subtitle, but, even better than this, I should have titled it simply: “Zompire.” Shorter would have been better.
