Want to See Your Name in Print???

Help! I'm a title-naming-idiot. Truly. I can't come up with titles for anything. Trust me on this.

So....I need a title. For a RS. One which will encompass it being a RS, yet maybe hit the "bigger arc"....how do you come up with your titles? Mine are horrible. Right now it's entitled ONSLAUGHT OF THE WICKED, but I need it to be more RS, less horror. Any suggestions?

Post your suggestions here...whomever suggests the title I end up using, provided it's accepted for publication, I'll be sure to give you credit in the acknowledgements page. So, come on...help a writer out!

My titles are always hit or miss. When I get in a groove the ideas just seem to flow. Otherwise it's like pulling teeth. I start by just writing down things like the theme of the book, what the main characters want or need, ideas from the verse I'm using. Then I just start moving the words around, looking up synonyms, etc.

If you want, shoot me an e-mail with some of this and a quick summary of the sentence and I'll help you play around with some ideas. Somehow, it's always easier with other people's stuff. :)

I'm awful at titles, too! My titles are based on the plot, and very unoriginal. I don't know much about your plot...or am I missing something that's supposed to help me?? Ugh, sorry!

Deadly Designs

Diamonds, Desire and Death

Diamonds are NOT this girl's best friend. (LOL!)

I like "Black Ice." That one has potential.

Enemy Ice

I like the Diamonds, Desire and Death. The Desire might be a bit much for an inspirational though. Not sure.

There are LOTS of books on Amazon called Black Diamond, but not so many Death Diamonds.

Problem is, I like Black Diamonds a lot.

Okay, I still say Diamonds in the Ruff is the best. *grin*

Killer Diamonds
Diamond Cut
Cost of Diamonds
Diamond Fire
Fire & Ice
Diamond Inclusion (or maybe EXCLUSION?)
Diamond Cloud
Diamond Point
(lest y'all think I've lost my ever-lovin' mind, those are all terms used re: diamonds...just so ya know LOL)

Okay...that's enough for me. I still prefer the very first one. LOL But that would be telling, wouldn't it?? :-)
