I have the most trouble with coming up with titles for works. Or maybe I should say that the titles I come up with for my own works are horrible. They're usually two words, and even then, they don't tend to tell you much.
(No, I didn't come up with Conventional Demon for the first Madison's tentative title despite the fact that it is two words. I asked for suggestions from friends and family and then we voted on the favorite one....Then I wrote Book 2 and realized that "Basic Trouble" wasn't going to work for the title and that "Conventional Demon" worked much better. This was Cody's title: I asked him to come up with a title that worked on two levels and was catchy. I think he did a darn good job, and I'm hoping that when they get to read Book 2, he and all my friends and family will be as helpful again!)
I admire people who can give their novels incredibly long titles and have it work. My long titles for CE might be: Fighting Evil with a Little More than Nasty Looks or Evil Never Had It So Good; A Tale of Madison Fox's Ignorance. See what I mean? Horrible.
I've already said that I bought Prose's book (see bookshelf on right) simply because of the long title. Well, I've been excited about this week's NON author, Edward Chupack, for weeks now, ever since I stumbled across his book's title: Silver: My Own Tale As Written by Me with a Goodly Amount of Murder. The name says it all. Drop by Number One Novels to hear more about this fabulously titled new novel.
