Input welcome! Updating a previous non-fiction work. Working titles (need to get travel into it): Easy going, travel time. Travel bliss. Travel ease: Feeling great on the go.
Adding '-time' works in with my previous branding: Drivetime Yoga, Flytime Yoga, Officetime Stretches. Keeping an eye out for SEO considerations like working 'back pain from sitting', 'on the go', etc. into the subtitle helps. Thanks.
I'm working with a new title: Drink the Kool-Aid: A Cult Survivor's Guide to Getting Rid of the Hangover. Thoughts?
It's based on my 7 yrs in a fundamentalist cult and will be humorous and serious.
I'm trying to decide between two titles for the first book in my new series. The series follows a young girl, 15, through dating, friendships, relationships. It's a romance, geared toward the young adult market. I have a group of young girls reading and critiquing it for me and they think I should change the title. Thought I'd ask to see what you experts think :)
The series title is: The Keatyn Chronicles: Book One
Then this book title: I've died and gone to hottie heaven. OR Push me over the edge of the love cliff.
Here's a rough book cover for the book:
Don’t make fun. I mean what would you call the story of your life when you’re just starting to live it? Some names I came up with and disregarded: Leaving the love of my life to go to an east coast boarding school to become my own person. How to have your four eyed, debate team, goes to bed at 9:30, band geek roommate dump YOU as a roommate. How to survive multiple encounters with the God of All Hotties. How to (or maybe why you shouldn't) kiss four different boys in less than three days. My sex life (as in I have a sex life!!! And it’s actual hot sex, um :) yeah). The psychic panty network. A perfect four leaf clover. I’ve died and gone to hottie heaven. How to tutor a god. How getting tagged in a Facebook photo kissing someone can cause all sorts of shit. My boots aren't slutty, they're Gucci. How not to fall in love with a player. Sniffing markers when making football posters really doesn't get me high. Forget that my parents are famous actors, this book is all about me. The adorable nickname your little sisters call you sounds slutty when freshman boys say it. True love leaves a mark. Boots is the name of the monkey on Dora the Explorer. How to carefully hone your high school reputation, haha NOT! Skinny soy chai latte no whip, and so on. The point is, I came to boarding school to find myself, take control of my life, but uh, yeah, that's not working out so well... and the truth is, even I don’t know how this one will end, I’m still trying to figure it all out.
But I do know this. When I put my head on Aiden’s shoulder on the ferris wheel, I felt like I’d died and gone to hottie heaven. Just saying.
Title for my Memoir: Broken Pieces of Me (A Story of Healing and Hope) ----(abuse story)
Title for a short guide: Get Noticed: A Reviewer's Guide for Authors
Title for a F/f BDSM: Tender Love
Fat Assassins is the title. Here's an excerpt from my query letter, so you'll have context.
Fat Assassins is a completed 90,000 word mainstream fiction set in Nitro, West Virginia. Shasta M. Murray and Ulyssa S. Grant are two curvy country girls desperate for money after losing their jobs. They unknowingly accept employment as assassins for a New Jersey mobster. They quickly discover being an assassin is a stressful job with exhausting emotional obstacles. Shasta fights to overcome her gentle hippie upbringing while Ulyssa struggles to dodge her extreme Catholic mother, Darth Guilt, to finish the job and return their lives to normal.
Cataclysmic explosions, near death experiences, and federal task force mobilizations are just a few of the byproducts of their botched assassination attempts. Assisted by hillbilly friends, dysfunctional family members and deranged townsfolk they scramble between killing, getting killed and avoiding jail.
I would appreciate any feedback! Thanks!
Bear with me, this is my first post.
I'm writing a memoir based on a diary I began when I was put into chemical menopause as part of my continuing breast cancer treatment and ended when I finished my first marathon. My mother had recently died from brain cancer and I was dealing with packing away her things so there is much about cancer, aging, death and running. I originally thought I would title it Finish Line (lots of endings in this book) but at one point I quote the Emily Dickinson poem Experience, about carefully stepping through life, in the shadow of death, and one line strikes me as a possible title: That Precarious Gait. The precarious gait refers to experience, but it could more specifically refer to my running gait.
Any thoughts on which would be better? Finish Line or That Precarious Gait?
I think Running through life is a good title too, but I would hesitate with That Precarious Gait, which would make me more curious about the content. Good Luck
