Dear Evil Editor,
I am looking for representation for my novel Prophecy's Birth. I'm not completely wedded to the title, Prophecy's Birth, especially since I've seen other novels with similar titles and I wouldn't want anyone to be confused. On the other hand, if someone were looking for one of those other novels, they might find mine instead and like it better.
The title Prophecy's Birth doesn't exactly fit the plot, but it should appeal to people who are looking for a book with that kind of title. I mean, I suppose I could change it if I had to, but just by looking at it you know the type of book it is. Isn't that what a title is supposed to do? Besides, it took me weeks to come up with the title Prophecy's Birth. I wrote down pages and pages of other titles and this was the best (I took a vote).
You might be worried that the title sounds too religious or too creative. What you should really think about is the many other related titles that would obviously belong with this one. Also, depending on the font, the title Prophecy's Birth could easily fit in any section of the bookstore.
May I send you the manuscript for Prophecy's Birth (or my concept art for the title)?
P.S. Don't you think Prophecy's Birth is a fantastic title?
P.P.S. I hope I don't have to change it.
