There’s some discussion swirling around the title for my next middle grade novel, about a figure skater from a small-town maple farm who earns a scholarship to train with the elite in Lake Placid. The original title is SUGAR ON SNOW, which I have always liked, but I’m also open-minded, since some folks at the publisher think it would be better if the title had a clearer connection to skating. So we’re brainstorming.
The other title that’s come up that I like is SUGAR AND ICE. (Thanks eluper and literaticat!)
So may I ask your opinion? Which one do you like better? Which title would make you more likely to pick up a book with a skater on the cover?
SUGAR ON SNOW
SUGAR AND ICE
…or something else?? Would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks!
