Title Blogfest


EDITED TO SAY:
It doesn't look like my participantl link list is working.  I'll leave it here as a guide, but you'll probably need to click back to Slushpile Slut and use the master list.





The following are all titles I entertained at one point or another (some only for seconds).  The REALLY bad ones I deleted.  I have a file with possible titles and every time I thought of a word or phrase I'd add it to the list for tweaking later. 

All In Her Head
Faith's Fiasco
False Memories
Dream Lover
Mind over Matter
Dream Walker
Head Case
Memory's Mirage
Faith, Love & Marriage
False Impressions
Swept Away
Influenced
Shadows Menace
Virtual Betrayal
Unwilling Submission
Hidden Agendas
Accidental Affair
Behind Closed Eyes
Destiny's Dilemma
Destiny's Choice 
(I like these last two titles, it sounds more romance-y than the book I'm writing.)

I liked Behind Closed Eyes for two reasons...you expect Behind Closed Doors, so it is startling, which is good. And the picture that follows is someone who is in a bad situation who wants desperately to get out of it. Woooot. Great.

I LOVE Behind Closed Eyes. It makes me think of both behind closed doors and behind one's back. Two in one. Awesome title. It makes me believe things are happening behind your MCs back, and that she knows about them, but is in denial, so she shuts herself off from it. GREAT!

I know the other two have picked it as well but I ADORE Behind Closed Eyes. I would definitely pick up a book with this title in the book store

Mason Canyon said...

I like Faith's Fiasco, has a nice ring to it. Several other neat titles there too. Best of luck.

I definitely think the last two sound romance-y...something about that word "Destiny."

Head Case and Behind Closed Eyes are my top two picks.

I'm torn between Memory's Mirage and Behind Closed Eyes. I guess when push came to shove BCE would win.

Sangu said...

Behind Closed Eyes is rather nice, I think it's the one I like best!

You shouldn't copy the list here...just point back to the original host. It's kinda their blogfest after all.

These jumped out
Faith's Fiasco
Dream Walker

Destiny's Choice sounds like pet food.

I love Behind Closed Eyes. There is so much that you can read into that title.

Kris & Kels said...

Behind Closed Eyes jumped out at me. Looks like I'm not alone, either.

Hands down: Behind Closed Eyes is it!

Sandy Shin said...

Behind Closed Eyes really jumped out at me, too!

Dawn Embers said...

Nice work and wow, another person who at least tried to put all the entry blog links in their entry. I applaud you even if they don't work.

Wow. Many titles and most of them seem so different. "Faith, Love and Marriage" sounds like a relationship help book, or something faith orientated involving a relationship. Whereas, "Unwilling Submission" reminds me more of BDSM *blushes*. "Shadow's Meanace" could be more fantasy, or action orientated while "All in her Head" can be more comedic, chick lit or something of those sorts.

The last two sound like either about destiny in general, or that the character's name is Destiny.

Really, it's hard to pick. Depends on the type of book and what the overall plot entails as to which title works the best.

Behing Closed Eyes is catchy. I like that one. Makes me think about what's going on in there. =D

RaShelle said...

Whoops - Behind Closed Eyes - that's better.

Suzie said...

Behind Closed Eyes is mysterious and sexy. I love it!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I like Unwilling Submission and Behind Closed Eyes best. They both make me what to flip over to the back cover and read more.

Stephen Tremp said...

I like titles with catchy, well, titles. My books though are all one word like Breakthrough, Opening, and Escalation. Maybe I need to be more creative.

I like Head Case. It's kinda tongue-in-cheek and could have multiple meanings. I also like Behind Closed Eyes. A lot.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

My favorites are Head Case, Swept Away, and Hidden Agendas - good stuff! :-)

Roland D. Yeomans said...

I believe the winner is BEHIND CLOSED EYES. It's short. It's a hook in and of itself. And it's teasing enough to interest a browser to pick it up and read the blurb to see what it is about. Roland

Tessa Conte said...

I like Behind Closed Eyes, too ; P

Diane J. said...

I like Behind Closed Eyes. Although Head Case seems like a fun one, it makes me think the story may be quirky, funny.

Slushpile Slut said...

Hey Hey!! thanks so much for participating and putting the participants up!!

I ADORE Behind Closed Eyes!!! I think that's a brilliant title!! Good luck with choosing!!

elizabeth mueller said...

Head Case made me laugh! That sounds so funny! I liked Dream Walker. OOhh, I like Behind Closed Eyes the best! Great work!! :)

This story sounds like a romance book where the MC's influences comes from dreams and it drives her craze and she needs to decide what she needs to do...;)
