Help Me Choose the Name for My Book!

This is the first time this has happened to me--that I haven't been able to choose a name for a book. Usually, the title is often the first thing that comes to me. Certainly I know what the title should be before I'm finished writing it.

But this time, with the third and last in the Desolation series, I have no idea what it's title is. So, I'm putting it in the hands of my readers and friends.

Throughout this week, Tiffany Mahaffy at Escaping . . . One Book at a Time, is hosting a scavenger hunt and poll. She's revealing the mock-up for Desi 3's cover, the cover copy, and running a poll between three possible title choices. There will be prizes, so I hope you'll stop by and vote for your favorite title!

  1. I love the title of the first 2 books. So book number 3 would have to be 1-word that grabs the reader. Hum...

  2. I was thinking, as an author who has a book titled Destined, the market is getting pretty saturated with that title ... meaning only that when a reader searches for "Destined" on Amazon or B&N, lots of other titles come up. Not sure that matters to you, (and I have no idea if that's true with the other titles), but thought I'd share some food for thought. :)

  3. Ascend? It was the first thing to come to mind. You are brave, handing your title to others, but hopefully a few ideas in the comments will spark your imagination!


  4. Stress can be relentless for all involved with having to wait for problem solving solutions or unable
    to communicate effectively when needed. You can do this even if you don’t have any computer skills or any computer
    experience. Working as such an operator has many
    different advantages.

  5. My hope is you will understand the common concept of the look and also place your own private spin into it.
    Being large hit is proven to the carburetor in the entire world.
    The conversion takes place in a different chamber and there is no chance for you to inhale the vapours of butane.
