My Title ‘Silent Storm’


When I started writing my novel I decided ‘Silent Storm’ was pretty cool because it had a certain mystique about it, in addition to being descriptive of the central premise of the story. It was only after I finished writing, getting the copyright, etc. that I realized there are literally dozens of publications that have those two words in their titles.  Many of them were even of the mushy Real Romance variety. I didn’t want my book to be confused with any of that.

Sigh. What to do? What to do?

Then I realized I could add a subtitle so that it appeared to be a continuation of the title and thus could distance my book from all the others; hence, Silent Storm Death Comes To De Soto was born.  That still kept the main theme alive and even added a little more description to the title.

Of course since then, one more question has popped up, “Who is De Soto?”  Of course, DeSoto is not a who, it’s a what. It’s a Parish in Louisiana.  I’m definitely going to do a LOT more research and put a LOT more thought into naming my next book :>)

About J. D. Groover

I truely believe that what should matter most in life is how you see yourself, not how someone else tries to convince you to see yourself. *****Life is not about "finding yourself"*****its about creating yourself.!!!!! I write and post things here because I like to think I am contributing some things of value to my world. Some times a little humor, some times things with a more serious tone, but hopefully always in good taste. If what I post occasionally bites a politician in the ass, all the better :>)
