Every book I’ve ever written has a secret title.
In my mind, the three romantic comedies in my contract will always be Piratebitch, Psychicbitch, and Winebitch.

There’s a lot of high-level strategy behind book titles that I don’t pretend to grasp. Lucky for me, the folks at Sourcebooks are keeping an eye on the market and taking steps to make certain we have the best title possible for my debut novel.

When his sleazy boss kicks him to the curb and steals his pension, Alex heads to the Caribbean with a crew of corporate castoffs to intercept an illegal diamond shipment in the most dysfunctional pirate mission in history. Things heat up when Juli – who’s supposed to be dumping her dead uncle’s ashes at sea – mistakenly stows away on their boat.
After you vote, leave a comment about why you chose the title you did. We’ll draw a name from the comments on March 31 and one lucky reader will get a signed Advance Reading Copy of the book.
Pretty cool, huh? Now here are your two choices:
Don’t forget to leave a comment about why you voted the way you did. That’s your entry to win an Advance Reading Copy of the book.
