It's a funny thing about titles. The title for a work usually comes to me first. I think of a word or phrase and say to myself, Hey, that would be a great title! and then I start thinking about plots, characters, and that sort of thing. Tecker went quickly to Robbie Toe but then just as quickly to All The Bad Things -- a phrase mentioned twice in the novel. I wrote the novel with Tecker in mind, so I'm still warming up to the change. I hope the change is for the good, though, meaning that it will appeal to a wider audience. I guess time will tell.
