Moments of a Writer's Life, #104


The Moment A Title Changed Yet Again: Simon & Schuster decided that How Harry Potter Killed My Mother was unfeasible as a title, due to concerns that we might get sued. So the decision was made to change it. The new title? Secrets of My Suburban Life. The problem with that title? To this day, I have trouble remembering how it goes. I sometimes think it might be Scenes from My Suburban Life and in fact had to double-check it in my bookshelf twice before writing this paragraph.
