It’s not often that I second-guess choices made, usually having well-researched them beforehand. In this case, the title selected was ‘American Dead‘ keeping with the theme of the first book. That said, it quickly became apparent that the title and the cover could be misconstrued to be negative of Americans, and of the military, especially with the nuclear explosion in the background of the cover.
I had chosen both titles to avoid a conflict with other books of the same title on Amazon. So having decided to revise the title, and the cover, I had to repeat the search to avoid conflicting titles on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
Thank you to those who offered feedback. Hopefully, this cover and title will work better. See what you think.
