When I started this book years ago, the title was anodyne (all lower case) and the lead character was Jake Calcutta.
And eleventyleven other things were different.
Everything’s changed; much adjustment to the story, which now features Jesse Donovan, instead of, well, the other guy.
Everything changed, but the title.
The old title didn’t fit anymore.
Like renaming a child just before you send them out into the world, this is unsettling, but it’s still the right thing.
And so, the first Jesse Donovan mystery will be called That She is Made of Truth.
