Rethinking The Title
Now that I'm back to working on "CANVAS: A Jaz Dilan Mystery", I've had consider changing the title. It doesn't lend itself to a series--which Jaz Dilan Mysteries will be a series--and it doesn't really give anyone a sense of the story when you just look at "CANVAS".
I don't want the cheesy thing where you have rhyming or punny that cozy mysteries do with their titles--not that it's bad. But CANVAS isn't a cozy mystery. It's darker than that, and I don't want to mislead people.
Because the main character is a tattoo artist, I was it to have something to do with tattoos, but I don't know how to tie murder mysteries and tattoo artistry together.
Usually, titles are my forte, but this one is tripping me up. I'm not sure what to do or where to go with this.
