Deborah’s son, Jared, envisioned a new subtitle for NEXUS. Our publisher wished to add “A Novel” but a number of people, including both Debby and I, find that subtitle redundant.
The new creative subtitle that Jared suggested is “A Neo-Novel.” How do you find this title?
We both like it because it communicates that our novel is something unique. When Arvind first heard it, he needed clarification since it sounded close to “Neo-Nazi.” This would make people do a double-take when they hear or read the subtitle. So together it would be “NEXUS: A Neo-Novel.” Definitely much better than “NEXUS: A Novel.”
