I love oldy but goodies! My Precious Gems were revamped and rereleased last year under their original titles, Bosom Buddies and Cinderella Wore Tennis Shoes. I'll confess, I have having my titles changed and I loved that I could go back to these originals. Although, sometimes my own title bites me in the...well, butt. I wrote a proposal for A Day Late and a Bride Short. I'll confess, I don't remember what my original idea was, but I do know that when the Senior Editor for the line saw it, she told my editor she was disappointed...she thought with that title it would be a marriage-of-convenience. I do remember it wasn't that at all. Frankly, I wasn't sure how to make a contemporary story about a MOC. But I said, "It will be that." And then wrote this story I didn't expect to write. It won a More than Magic Award and was a Romantic Times Bookclub Top Pick.
I think there are two lessons here. The first is, oldies can be goodies...I hope. The second is, don't be afraid to take an unexpected path...something fun might be waiting for you!!
