So here is my latest irritation concerning my up and coming, soon to be published novel. I don't love the title. Honestly, I picked it randomly.
When I was writing the story, fast and furiously, I just picked a random name off the top of my head. Since I speak Spanish, the name, popped into my head. I wasn't really thinking hard, or trying to find something fantastic. I fully intended to revisit this choice of names. ( is something in the story, obviously)
Well, my publisher likes it. I've wracked my brain for a name I like better, but the only ones I come up with are too pretty and no boy in his right mind would pick it up and read it, so I've come to accept that is it. That's okay, but no one, and I mean NO ONE pronounces it right. For those of you who speak Spanish, you'll know how to say it, but the rest of the population slaughters it, which is surprising, considering it's such a teeny, tiny word.
I've considered writing it as Tanube instead. It's pronounced with the accent on the second half of the word and sounds like Tanoob. My editor does not like this spelling as it looks too much like boob. I agree! LOL
Oh well. Maybe it's meant to be. Why do I kick against the pricks? Do I have to be so dang nit-picky? Good grief, no. So, long story short. I will keep it The Eye of . So there.
