Your Book, Your Title
I’m on a blog roll! LOL
So let’s talk about titles today. How did you come up with the title of your book in progress?
Or your current book that’s been published?
Or one of your past books?
Do you go to Amazon or Barnes and Noble and put in your book’s title, before you publish it?
I have a story in an anthology that is titled, “Love is in the Air” And if you go to Amazon and search for it, it comes up on the third page. There are so many books, CD’s, and DVD’s with this title or associated with these words.
Make your title unique. When someone types in your title you want it to come up first.
When I started writing “Judged by the Cover” I tried out all kinds of different titles. As you can see here;
And as I told you on my last post, I started writing a poem, that is turning into a children’s picture book. So I started thinking about titles.
“Happy to be, Just me! This right here will bring up countless titles on Amazon. Especially the “Just Me” part which is associated with the little critters series of books for children. Such as “Just me and dad” Just me and mom” etc.
So that didn’t work. Then I tried “House of Mirrors” Yeah there are a lot of those too! In fact, when I did a search for “House of Mirrors”
yesterday, I found this book
And I should have posted my blog post yesterday, because the book was free! But it is still reasonable to buy at 99 cents.
Well that’s my take on titles. What’s yours? How do you come up with your title? Do you search for it before you get your heart set on it? Does it represent your book?
Here is a link to another look at book titles on “Writing Novels That Sell”
Happy Thursday everyone and hang in there the weekend is just around the corner! Woot! Woot!
