So, as you know from my previous post, I’m writing a short story set between Entertaining Angels and Entertaining Angels book two. What you don’t know is the title. Well, me either, so I’m in good company!
Titles can be the hardest thing for me to come up, but sometimes, it’s also easy. Entertaining Angels came easily. Read Me Dead didn’t. Piercing Through the Darkness came easy, as well. Entertaining Angels short story – no, not easy. Entertaining Angels book two, may as well be titled book two! I can’t think of anything!
And everyone LOVES Read Me Dead’s title. Yeah. It’s a great title, but I spent AGES wracking my brain trying to think of the best title that would work. It had at least ten different titles before Read Me Dead happened.
But, it’s important to get the right title. I’ve been thinking about this a lot as I’m trying to come up with some titles for my books. (Well, I usually spend a lot of time thinking about these things when I don’t have a titled story or book.) Point is, a title needs to be super catchy. Because really, the first two things that people are going to notice is the title and the cover. From there, they will read the synopsis and decide whether to buy or not.
So, you need something good when coming up with a title, and I’m trying to keep that in mind as I title my short story and book two. I have a few ideas for the short story, but I’m still thinking on them.
**Update** I have thought of a title for the short story since I wrote this yesterday. It’s “Before We Say ‘I Do.” And I’m also in search of beta readers. So if you loved Entertaining Angels and you like to beta read, message me!
Anyway, that’s just a small little update of mine. Any ideas from you guys on what makes a good title? Sound off in the comments! I’d love to hear them.
