I finally solved my title problem!
After months of asking on Twitter as well as on this blog, I eventually confided in a friend about my growing frustration.
15 minutes of brainstorming later and I had not only the title for this book, but for the rest of the planned books in the Angel’s Voice series.
It’s the same friend who helped me fix some typography issues when I was redesigning covers for the series. I might just have to start paying her…
Of course we’re continuing the ‘sound’-theme from the earlier books and naming the fifth book ‘Broken Melody’. Let’s hope I don’t jinx the book by naming it. The writing has been going remarkably well and I would love to break my habit of taking years to finish books.
And yes, I know some of you will be disappointed that the book won’t be called ‘CSI: Var’nori’, but it’s very important to remember that I’m often quite sleep-deprived when I write blog posts and that I never should have shared my weird working title with you to begin with. It’s bad enough that it’s still kind of stuck in my own head…
Seeing as Ghostly Scream will soon be published, I have run into a recurring problem in what I need something to write underneath the sentence “Next Book in the Angel’s Voice Series” on the last page.
Yep. I need a title for book 5.
Like I have taken to doing with character names, I’m just gonna crowd source ideas before I drive myself insane.
Good thing about this series is that you don’t need to know anything about the content of the books to help out! The theme is pretty simple, seeing as none of the titles have much to do with the plot in the individual books. They just have to relate to the sound of a voice.
(If it includes some kind of redundancy or other things that make it sound slightly silly, that’s just a plus.)
Book 1 – Resounding Echo
Book 2 – Silent Sound
Book 3 – Quiet Whisper
Book 4 – Ghostly Scream (never really liked this one…)
Book 5 – ??? (Help me!)
So! Help me brainstorm, will ya?
Any ideas are welcome. Even if it’s just separate words, we might be able to Frankenstein a title out of it in the end.
(Also, if your help has a price, name it. Whether you want to be a character in the book or want the soul of my firstborn, I’m open for negotiations…)
