I need to come up with a name for my short fiction collection (which has now been divided into two volumes). I’ve got a few ideas, but nothing that I’m really in love with. Or more importantly, that Toni and the marketing staff are in love with. The problem with naming short fiction collections is you need something that works for a whole bunch of stories from different genres, from different worlds, and different themes. And most importantly it has to sound cool.
So you guys are smart, and you are also the target audience, so if you’ve got suggestions please post them in the comments here. If Toni picks one of them as the title we will say that we got it from you on the Thank You page, and then I’ll send you some autographed copies. This is a really informal contest, so the rules are we’ll pick what we like, and I reserve the right to say no thanks, those all suck, and then use something else (but hopefully that won’t be the case because you guys are friggin’ brilliant).
Here is the table of contents for the first one:
Tanya: Princess of the Elves
Dead Waits Dreaming
Murder on the Orient Elite
Destiny of a Bullet
Bubba Shackleford’s Professional Monster Killers
The Diary of Hannah Stone
The Losing Side
The Great Sea Beast
The Adventures of Tom Stranger, Interdimensional Insurance Agent
So go ahead and post your suggestions in the comments here. I’m sure other certain websites will also have helpful suggestions befitting me, like Not A Real Writer: Hatemonger Jerkface Bundles Some Trash. Which come to think of it, is actually kind of a cool title. 😀
