Does Your Title Sell Your Book?


Hey! You wanna write from the hip? Try this.

At a recent writers’ club meeting, Our Fearless Leader issued a challenge during the writing exercise time. Does your title sell your book? Will shoppers pick up your book because the title intrigues them? I thought it might be fun to toss this out to you all and see what comes back. Try it. From the hip.

Write three catchy titles, each using one of the words below.
  • Supper / Where / Remove
Rules: Please keep them clean. This is a family-friendly blog, you know.
  • Your title is all we want here. Don’t explain or give a synopsis of your book.
  • You may not use all three words in one title.
  • No length limit.
  • Words may be placed anywhere in the title.
  • You may add “s,” “ed,” “er,” “ing” and so forth to a word(s).
Examples (weak ones): 
  • The Sly Supper
  • Singing Where No Man Has Sung Before
  • Body Removal for Dummies; a Gangster’s Resource for the Rest of Us
Hint: You have an advantage. We only had five minutes to create our titles. Please join the fun. Hurry back with your inspiration.

Oh, wait. Click My Hats Blog and take a look at the latest post. She's real cute...

Sorry, I can't participate. You asked to keep it clean and I can't do that.

I don't think I am capable.
