Thinking of Going From An Inconvenient Wife to The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife (Regarding the Title of the Book)

I had to do a cover to get an idea of how it would fit in the picture, and I think The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife sounds better and looks better than An Inconvenient Wife.  Here’s the comparison for anyone interested.

Any thoughts?

As a side note, regarding Richard Larson and Amanda’s romance, I have the background finished for the cover, but getting the right woman to do with it has proven a very difficult task, and I expect that to be the easy part.  I swear, you just can’t tell how things will go until you do them.   I’m still thinking of Wagon Trail Bride.

    I think adding “Earl” to the title makes it sound more like a Regency.

    • Thanks! I agree. It lets people know this is a Regency, and since I haven’t done Regency, it’s a good way of telling them what genre it is as soon as they see the title.

    The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife sounds much better. It captures the imagination of the reader and if any other readers are like me, questions pop up just because of the title. That causes me to buy the book and read.

    • Thanks! I’ve been saying both titles, and the one with Earl in it seems to roll off the tongue better. In regards to titles, I’m the same way you are. 😀

  3. I think The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife gives a little more information, so that’s probably a better title to go with. Also, it makes it sound more like a regency than a contemporary, although the picture should give that away. 🙂

    • Good point on the fact that some people might think it’s contemporary. Since I’ve done contemporaries, I think the Earl in the title will do the best job to alert people to the fact that this is a Regency. 😀

    The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife sounds better….it establishes the kind of book you are writing…. I like the cover for Richard and Amanda’s book too. Were you going to photoshop a woman in the picture too?? just wondering….also i don’t think you’ve ever described Amanda….what kind of woman were you going for for her??

    • How are you doing? I’ve been thinking and praying about you.

      I’m going with the Earl in the title for the reason you mentioned: it establishes the kind of book this is. 😀

      I plan to put up the cover for Richard and Amanda’s book in a little bit. I did find the right girl to go with it, but man, it took me about 10 tries to find one that worked with the cover. I used 9 other girls and there was either something with the colors in their clothes or the way they had their head turned that didn’t work with the background. It’s hard to explain, but I finally got a good fit. 😀
