Everything and the Moon

I like awards, and when people don't give them to me, I make them up. With my last book, Minx, I awarded myself the "Shortest Title Ever" prize. I thought I was pretty clever until my husband walked into my office, scratching his head and muttering, "Where are all the minks?" (The poor man really does not have his finger on the pulse of the romance novel industry. When I got my cover in the mail, he took one look at it and said, "Where's the exclamation point? I thought it was called Minx!")

So this time I decided to go in the other direction and try for the longest title ever: Everything and the Moon. "Nice title," people say, "but what the heck does it mean?"

This is where I usually wag my finger and say, "Buy the book! My husband is in medical school. You know how much that costs?" But I'll give you a little hint:

"Oh Torie," Robert murmured. "I'll make you so happy. I promise. I want to give you everything."

"I want the moon!" she shouted, suddenly believing that such fancies were actually possible.

"I'll give you everything and the moon," he said fiercely.

And then he kissed her.

From this little exchange blossomed an entire book. Pretty neat, huh?
