Title Time

Thankful for everyone who has taken a chance on this book. It’s finding an audience in ways exceeding all our hopes. This is a screenshot from the day I finally chose the title. I had a long list of them: “Wintering,” “OverWintered,” OverWintering,” “Blizzarded,” “SnowBound,” on and on…some good, some awful, but every time I came up with a title I liked, I did a search and sure enough it was taken. You can double up on titles (e.g., there is more than one “Truck” book) but in this case I wanted to avoid the confusion. My favorite was “Sublimation,” but as beautiful and perfectly suited as the word is to the story, it was a tad too esoteric and ungrounded. So “Forty Acres Deep” it is.
