Book Title Contest

It's 2 in the morning, I'm wide awake, and I took my sleeping pill an hour and a half ago. You know what that means...It's Super Crazy Idea Time!!! (Picture me saying that like Oprah saying it's her birthday.)

Yes. I have had yet another ingenious idea that may or may not still be ingenious in the morning, but let's just go with it, shall we? So here's today's Super Crazy Idea. (My last one had me heading up a monthly book club the following morning.) I think it would be wicked cool to have a little contest involving my book. (Let's just hope there's no microscopic print in my contract prohibiting me from doing this.) See, I'm having trouble coming up with a title for it. So I thought it would make a great blog contest for my readers to come up with one! Now, I realize virtually all of you have no idea what it's about, but that's ok. It will make it all the more fun. But, because I'm cool like that, I'll give you a couple hints to help you along:

1. It's a love story. 2. It's kinda dark 3. It takes place in Seattle.

So, taking your newfound wealth of information, think up a fabulous title and put it in my comments. I'm not in any way saying I will use any of the suggested titles, but, you never know. However...............drumroll...............the person who comes up with the title that I like the best WILL be written into my book. As in their first name as a character in my book. Wouldn't that be awesome??? I think so! I'd write myself into it if it wouldn't be totally ridiculous! Leave as many titles as you want, I want a ton! The contest will go from now (cause I know you're all reading this right now at 2 in the morning) until Saturday night at midnight, PST. The winner will be announced on Sunday.

I'm so excited! Get brainstorming and commenting! Ready......set.......GO!

Rachael said...

Here are a few, I am still thinking though..."Loveless in Seattle" "This Ain't Forks" "A Stones Throw From Twilight" "The Rain" "Pike Street Romance" Still thinking, maybe you could have the person with the best AND worst titles win...

Lyssa said...

Ok did a bit of research with this:
"shot in the dark"
refering to seattle coffee lingo...thought that would be cool...
http://www.callihan.com/seattle/coffee.htm

I have nothing, but I sent your blog to my writer sister-in-law to see if she had ideas for you. You'll have to pick a few of the best and worst and make a few polls. =)

dark love...with wings

Stormy Love, cloudy love or Foggy Love

Bryan Davis said...

"The great Seattle fire" of course in reference to the fire of 1889 that destroyed the city, and also the fire in reference to love. Or "Wood chips and Glue" which is how the great fire started in 1889. Or you could go with "Pioneer Park" which is in reference to the the original city center. Then if it turned into a series maybe people would flock to pioneer square to see it. Or you could go with "Underground Love" or just "underground" in reference to old Original Seattle which is now underground. Or maybe "Maynard town" reference to what part of Seattle was originally called.

Anyway those are a few of my initial ideas. And a little history.

darkness shining
(as in the rain/love shining in the dark - and my name is AWESOME)

Ok, I was careful not to see anyone elses posts so as not to influence me. I still will not read them until I am done with my ideas. Here is my one so far:

Moving Darkness

Marilyn said...

+ Emerald Flame
+ Crave the Rain
+ Without Shine
+ Urban Crush
+ Metronatural (did you know that this is a word created to describe Seattle? I think it would make a great book title.)

Marilyn said...

Ok, here's another. I like oxymorons, and I think this sounds like Seattle...

+ Brilliant Haze (could add A or The to the front)
