Clear with Newman Jones--my current novel. The TV show Fringe meets Dr. Phil on steroids.

I like short titles and ones that give us the character's name, so for me that part's good. But since I don't understand the reference to "Clear", I don't really have any idea what the book would be about. Maybe it would speak to someone more into SpecFic, but I'm not getting it. Sorry.

Looking at only the title, I wouldn't have a clue what it meant. The cover would really need to be eye-catching or I wouldn't even read the description.

Thanks for the replies. The cover will definitely make everything CLEAR. MC is a paramedic who gains the ability to erase humans' traumatic memories. Hence...clearing their minds of the awful experience. But there's a double meaning behind the word clear, which is what an EMT shouts before jolting someone back to life. Clear with Newman Jones is the title of a Dr. Phil-like TV show where guests share their memories, and Newman takes them away. ALL verified by doctors/brain researchers. No hocus pocus. :)
