As I come to the last long push towards finishing my novel, I need to be thinking about a suitable title. Well, I've been doing that all along and it has gone through lots of changes in that time. It started out as Whitaker's Basin which will remain my name for the basin on the Trent and Mersey canal where part of the story is focussed. But it doesn't really fit the novel.
It could be some variation of The Girl in the Forest or The Picture of a Forest Girl. And as I write this very short piece an idea dropped into my mind: I quite like La Gitane et le Vannier. It'll have to be English, of course, but I think that will be where the final idea will come from.
And then there will be the question of a book cover.
