Something About Sheritta #15

20170602_093814How did you come up with the title of your first novel?

Now, if we look at the first book I finished (which hasn’t been published yet), we’re talking about “The Rose”. I chose that name because the main female character’s full name is “Annabelle Rose”, but she goes by “Belle”. This kind of echoes for Beauty and the Beast, but also in the story, the male protagonist picks her a fresh rose every day for her table. I also love the concept of the rose when comparing it to the depth of a character. Like an onion, roses have many layers and even when it fully blooms, you can’t always see its innermost core. Belle, in this story, is the flower and she hasn’t bloomed yet. She (like me) suffers from social anxiety at times and doesn’t open up to others easily. But as the story progresses, she does bloom and her petals are unfurled to show her true, beautiful self.
