A few months ago I asked for your advice on whether I should change the title of my upcoming novel, The Art of Letting Go. My problem was that it was the same title as global superstar singer Mariah Carey was using for her forthcoming and much anticipated album. No doubt Mariah was also writing angsty blog posts along a similar theme. (Ok, maybe a little doubt...)
Well, I'm pleased to say that I have won the artistic stand-off. As so many of you advised, I did not change my title and I have just discovered that Mariah Carey has backed-down in the face of an unknown debut author. She may still have a song called The Art of Letting Go, but her album is now called Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse. My friend Sebastian has suggested I change my novel title to something along the lines of Me. I Am Chloe... The Elusive Authoress. What do you think?
