Original title is very gollumish: In his Shadow Where he Keeps It.
"We likes the title, my precious, but we ates it because it was tasty."
Considering new titles:
In Flame's Shadow
The Shadow of Fire
Scorched in Shadow
So, I know the title isn't important but I like to have a good working title. Anyone like one more than the other or have other similar ideas?
Here is the back flap summary (which is subject to change as my characters see fit) :
Sidra is obsessed and teased by the thought of fire. It consumes her every waking thought and is the focus of all her art. Nothing matters as much as capturing the light and depth of reds, oranges, blues, purples, and the occasional common yellow.
Well, that's not true anymore.
There is something decidedly strange about the new guy in school, Seth. He doesn't seem to care about popularity or grades, and he asks a whole lot of questions about why she is called "Scorch." There is purpose in his gaze, and he hints that he's come to Vegas for a reason. When mysterious fires begin plaguing her classmates, Sidra knows it's only a matter of time before they start asking "Scorch" questions. Hopefully, no one finds the paintings of the fires that she painted before they happened. Still, they should be asking Seth. He's been at all the scenes almost immediately, and there is something funny about the air around him--he casts a strangely dark shadow over everything. Then, there is the dog that sometimes is with him. It's huge and dark but disappears like a fire jarred.
She shouldn't be protecting Seth. She shouldn't want him. Still, for a guy hiding in shadows, he sure warms her heart--it's as if she's on fire.
