I think I found the title of my book. My first book. The one I'm hopelessly slowly though nonetheless working on for BuNoWriMo.
It's got a lot of personal meaning for me from an earlier portion in my life when I had to make the decision whether I was going to continue to play these parts, one person to each group of people, or I was going to come clean, become whole, become one, and let all my worlds collide and see who I really was. Still Am. I did it. Not easy. Especially not when it's your bridal shower...but I digress.
Of course it's not a new phrase, it's a stolen pop-culture phrase. You recognize it from Seinfeld. The guy who posted the exact clip I wanted won't let me imbed it, but here's the link:
It fits my book because Leah, who's a secret agent, not only operates, literally, on many worlds. It's sci-fi after all, but the whole secret agent thing is a bit more complicated than just being say an FBI agent. She's a secret agent infiltrating another agency...and everything is falling apart because the demons from her past are coming back to haunt her. Personal issues are clouding her judgment, causing her to behave in dangerous ways, and that all may just blow her cover, not to mention the conflicts that are building in the race to fill space with floating worlds...which in the wrong hands, could be on a collision course.
I've mentioned this before, but you might have missed the post. I wrote an unfinished, short story version of this in 2/11 so if you want to get a pre-view, you'll find where the story starts here. There are five parts, links to the next one at the bottom of each.
So what do you think? Would you read this book? Do you have a title suggestion? Did you have a nice Father's Day? We spent it with my in-laws, and today I'm taking my Dad (and Mom) to lunch.
