I Changed my Novel Name

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ernesto Oporto @ 2:57 PM, July 9, 2014

I was on the final revision of my manuscript when I had a brainstorm, or maybe a brain wreck.

I looked at the manuscript for my novel titled VISITATIONS and decided that it should not take place in Westchester County, New York, present time.

I thought that it would add another layer of interest if I moved the story to London, England, but even more importantly, the end of the Victorian Era, when the Empire was at its peak, India was the Jewel in the Crown, and the chasm between the rich and the poor was very deep. Also, I changed the title to THE WITCH AND THE HOUND.

I believe the contrast between the two ways of lives, affecting a story where a woman of high society who happens to be a Witch gets involved in chasing a serial killer would have many possible scenes and would deepen the story with another level.

Of course now I am knee deep in research, customs, mores, rookeries, foods, transportation, ladies and lords and many more things to take into account.

Wish me luck, I’m going to need it.
