The Skeleton

In case you’re wondering, here are the chapter titles of my book.

         1. The Constant Lie

         2. Power of 8

         3. Cut the Cord

         4. Once Upon a Time

         5. Leaving

         6. Ping

         7. The Constant Lie

         8. The Empty Everything

         9. Who’s There?

        10. That Little Yellow Dot

Each chapter is the next sequential account of a specific section of the 135-year time-line; however, the uniformity of the characters and the situation binds it all together. Though each one should stand alone, as a whole I’m hoping to create a detailed world.

Yes, I know that Chapter 1 and 7 are the same. It’s deliberate. [ah, the artistry!]

And Yes, I know that Chapter 8 is the same title as the novel. It’s my book, I’ll do what I want.

Speaking of titles, right now here’s how I see it:

When you’re already designing the cover, you know you're jumping way too far ahead. I still have to write the damn thing! ha ha


  1. When I typed and printed my cover page I was so excited - and then the anxiety set in.


    The frustrations of writing! Can't let the feeling of being pleased with my writing last for more than a minute or two.

  2. Do I get a mention in the book's acknowledgement for the E-squared idea??

  3. Raine,

    I already had E2 title in mind. Really I did. It's a natural first thought. However, if you want me to mention you, I'll mention you.

    The fees for the different types of acknowledgement will be posted right before publication.
