Title Advice from Kid Lit Author David Lubar at Cynthia Leitich Smith's Cynsations

Is that exclamation point at the end of your title a good idea? (Maybe not.)

Have you checked to make sure there isn't a similar title already out there? (You should.)

Is your title memorable or too long and complicated to remember? (Good point to consider.)

David Lubar recounts the ins and outs of the titles he's used for his books -- sharing what he's learned along the way.

While we authors don't always get the final say on a title, there's always a working title, and if we nail it, we've got a much better chance of it sticking. This article is a great place to start running your working title through its paces.

Thanks to David and Cynthia!
