My Novel title is INNOCENT MURDER, but the first murder occurs half way through the story. I have been told that if it is a murder story, the murder should come no further than 20 per cent through the story. Therefore I am thinking of changing the title to IMPERFECT PARTNERS. But I have also been advised that a story should keep the reader waiting; built up tension, expectation before major happenings. The trouble is I think the original title is more punchy. I would welcome any view on this problem. I cannot change the story....should I change the title?
