Rylie has guessed correctly. The name of my next novel is Why Do I Lie? after the song by Luscious Jackson. Rylie send me an email with your snail mail address. I will send you a copy of How to Ditch your Fairy.
A Quick Note on Titles
Just because I think Why Do I Lie? is the best possible title for this book there is no guarantee that my publisher will agree with me. I thought The Ultimate Fairy Book was the best possible title for the fairy book. Booksellers thought it was confusing because it sounded like a non-fiction guide to fairies. They said it would be misshelved and lost with that title. So we went with a new title, How To Ditch Your Fairy, generously provided by Libba Bray. (Bless you, Libba Bray!)
I am working hard not to become too attached to this title—even though it is PERFECT for the book—because there may be a better, more saleable title in its future. That is how publishing works. And, frankly, if there’s another title that will sell more copies? I’m down with that.
