Monday Mentionables: What's In A Title?

Happy Monday, everyone! So the latest news with me is that I've gotten my rights back for Lost in Paradise, which is one of my favorite (and first) books, but which needs some new I've decided to release it independently with a new cover, new title, and some new content as well.

Exciting, right? While it will be a bit of a challenge, I'm looking forward to it, and to the learning process as well. The "hybrid" model of publishing is becoming more popular with authors these days, the concept of still publishing some works with a traditional publisher but combining that with self-publishing other, often shorter works as well. It will be interesting to see how that total control over the process affects me - or not. I do think I'm lucky that I'm familiar with the whole publishing process, so I know a lot of the "behind the scenes" steps. Still, a lot of this will be new. Thank goodness I have some writing friends who have done it and can help me!

Anyway, I'm in the process of choosing my title. I still want it to have a reference to Paradise (the name of the town but also, of course, the idea of a perfect place to find love), so I'm leaning toward The Promise of Paradise. What do you think? Let's see...what are some other possibilities? Thoughts?

Paradise Found
Promises in Paradise
Pleasure in Paradise
Hearts in Paradise

Like the one you are leaning to. Also thought of Searching for Paradise.
