I've decided to change the name of my forthcoming (April) novella, Sea of Trees, to A Whisper of Leaves.
I'm doing it for two main reasons 1) I was never sure I'd end up going with 'Sea of Trees' because of Seichō Matsumoto's 1960 novel Kuroi Jukai (Black Sea of Trees) and 2) now that Gus Van Sant is releasing a film set in the same forest, called Sea of Trees later this year, I feel like the title is already associated with works that will be far, far better known than mine.
And so, A Whisper of Leaves it is! : )
