The title of my second book, Blood Moon, sounds like it's about vampires, doesn't it. But it's not. I chose the titles of my first two books, Cooper's Moon and Blood Moon, because of a preoccupation I have with the moon. Some people are "sun" people (my wife) and some are 'moon" people (I am one of those).
The titles also represent the general feeling of the book. For instance, I chose the title, Blood Moon, because the story deals with human trafficking and the terrible consequences of that world-wide problem.
Finally, the blood moon, the first full moon after the harvest moon, is so named because, according to legend, native Americans hunted under the light of the moon and the fields ran with the blood of their prey. It is in this setting, under the light of the blood moon, that Cooper and his friends hunt their prey, who are themselves predators.
