    A rainy dawn breaks over a slum neighborhood in Washington, DC to reveal the brutally beaten body of a prominent judge. A few hours later, a suspect is arrested. But the judge’s daughter believes there are secrets that drove her father to his death, and she wants to know what they are. Clay Warner, a down-on-his-luck insurance investigator, is determined to discover the truth – and win back the love of his life. But he does not know how deep that truth lies buried, and how far some will go to make sure it’s never uncovered.

The Name’s the Thing

Posted by Kevin on April 15, 2006

I thought of a title for my novel first thing, but I didn't have to get very far into the first chapter to realize that it probably wasn't going to be a suitable one. A little too poetic for the voice. But it'll stand as the working title though I more often think of the book as "the novel" as opposed to using the title in my mind. I'll let the story play out until a more suitable one pops into my head.

The right title is too important to rush into. I've even had a hard time naming this blog! I put it up with just my name, then titled it "First Draft," and then decided that was a little too generic. So this morning I came up with "Blood Lines." We'll see if it sticks.
