> Omg I suck at titles! This is actually really helpful, even though I do about 75% of it already. Some of those things I didn't think of. I have a horrible time with titles. Only one of my novels has a title that stands out and probably will never change, but the others change all the time and I'm never happy with them. I think about a title the whole time I'm writing the book, so that by the end, I have something tolerable to call it. I'm actually having some difficulty with the one I'm writing now, so I'll definitely sit down and do all of your suggestions.

"The characters should all be familiar: the heir to the British throne, his mischievous younger brother, his granny and the pretty commoner he meets in college. But in this version... the girl is American. Nick and Bex's love story is so fun and dishy, you'll hope for a sequel--with royal babies."―PEOPLE
American Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy tales. Her twin sister, Lacey, has always been the romantic who fantasized about glamour and royalty, fame and fortune. Yet it's Bex who seeks adventure at Oxford and finds herself living down the hall from Prince Nicholas, Great Britain's future king. And when Bex can't resist falling for Nick, the person behind the prince, it propels her into a world she did not expect to inhabit, under a spotlight she is not prepared to face.
Specifically, however, Stevenson consciously borrowed material from previous authors. In a July 1884 letter to Sidney Colvin, he writes "'Treasure Island' came out of Kingsley's 'At Last,' where I got the Dead Man 's Chest - and that was the seed - and out of the great Captain Johnson's 'History of the Notorious Pirates.'" Stevenson also admits that he took the idea of Captain Flint's skeleton point from Poe's "The Gold-Bug," and he constructed Billy Bones ' history from the pages of Washington Irving, one of his favorite writers.
