Choosing a title for a book

Everyone tells me that the title of the book is one of the important steps that go towards a reader choosing what book to read. At the beginning, I had a few ideas in my head, but wanted a title that was specifically Australian and reflected the spirit of the book. “For Reasons of their Own” is a line from a Poem by the famous Australian Poet Henry Lawson who wrote that the powerful decision makers didnt care about the misery they caused people affected by their decisions. My novel is about all the characters making decisons, some of which are secretive, others driven by other forces and perhaps ones they would not make unless they were placed under exceptional circumstances or pressure.

Forward, Child, Cry, Soldiers, War
