Lyn Cote here-I’m usually a forth-coming person, honest and frank, but some words are hard to say. And over a decade ago when I signed a contract for a new four-book historical inspirational series, I was told that the publisher had already chosen the title for the series. Okay–it was fine. I got busy and started writing. I’d been writing contemporaries and now I was writing my first love, historicals again. And writing a series of four generations of women in one family spanning the 20th century was a dream come true. I was pumped. The first book came out and I decided to google the series and see if anyone had noticed it.
That’s when the AWFUL TRUTH was revealed. Evidently my publisher HAD NOT googled the title. Imagine my horror–when my inspirational romance series shared a name with a PORN SITE–boasting the most beautiful women on the net. ACK!!! After some thought, I decided NOT to let my editor know. Evidently she never googled it so we never had an uncomfortable conversation. Some words are better left unsaid.
I’ve renamed the series: “The Carlyle Women” and the last of the four ebooks (also with a new title) What Love Is, is on pre-order till December 1st for an introductory price of $2.99. If you’d like more info, Click here.
