Titles sell books. They also pique the readers interest and hopefully make them want to read the story. Needless to say, they are very important. That being the case, it’s not surprising that I have spent so much time coming up with the title for my book.
The first title for my book, A New Beginning, morphed more into one of the underlying themes of the story than the actual title itself. After moving on from A New Beginning, I’ve toyed around with other titles before settling on one that felt right. That title is 2021: A Time Odyssey. Well, there you have it. That’s the title of my new book.
As for the story itself, I’ve decided that I should hold off on revealing too much while I’m in the process of seeking publication. Once I have that all figured out, I’ll reveal more. One thing that I can say about the story at this time is that the story is a wild ride that is told through diverging timelines that build toward a climactic convergence.
While I continue to pursue publication, I’ve decided to do a countdown of my top 10 favorite poems from the Past, Present, and Future. Next month, I’ll reveal number 10 and explain my thoughts on the poem.
That’s it for now. These are exciting times, even if they are a time of healing, and I look forward to sharing my work with the world when the time comes.

It seems there is a twenty years shift between space and time. There is a hundred years shift between Winston and Julia of 1984, and Met and Meri of 2084. Interesting.
Glad to hear that you found my title interesting. Now, on with my search….
Wish you success on your book 😉🤞
Thank you. I hope everything works out successfully too.
2021: A Time Odyssey sounds like it fits perfectly between 2010: The Second Odyssey and 2061: The Third Odyssey. I’m looking forard to more info but I love a good poem. Good luck with getting the publishing sorted.
Thank you, Ste J. In time, I hope everything works out. Of course, the future is always fluid in nature.
