I got an email today from my wonderful UK publisher. I'd think she's wonderful under any circumstance, but since she said the following in her email, I think she's both wonderful and incredibly insightful:
I think you’ve done a brilliant job in it of combining the characters from the previous two books, and succeeding in ramping up the tension to near-unbearable levels for the third time. This is an awesome achievement. I am very excited about our plans for the trilogy.
When I wrote Life As We Knew It, I didn't know there were going to be two other books to follow, and when I wrote the dead and the gone, I didn't know there'd be another book to follow, so This World We Live In is kind of the unanticipated third volume of an unnamed trilogy. I've taken to calling it the Moon Crash trilogy, but that's very much an unofficial name.
My UK publisher is considering calling it the Survivors Trilogy, but is open to other ideas. So I figured I'd ask all of you. Should your suggestion end up being used in the UK (or anywhere else for that matter), you'll get no credit and no money and since most of you are called Anonymous, most likely I won't be able to thank you by name here.
But I'd be grateful for your thoughts and ideas. And that should count for something!
ETA: If you're shy, use the darling little email link to the right.
