Awesome. This is so hard to decide. I was thinking Dark King Rising, but there is so much more than that in the first installment. :/ Its just hard to find a good fit with so much information squeezed into a book. Do you have a hard time with naming stuff too?
Oddly, it’s one of the things I never have much trouble on. Working titles are still common, but usually once the work is done a title kind of comes to mind. “A Matter Of Honour” came almost before I had any of the storylines planned.
I guess I just suck at naming stuff lol I can pull story ideas outta my butt but have a hard time naming cities, planets, nations, characters, you name it. I want it to not only fit the person or place and feel right but flow and match the rest of the naming system. I have this thing with trying to be unique and not cheese out as much as possible on the other writer's forum I was on it was common for people to point out cliche naming and laugh a bit. :/ I get it though, we hear or read something we like and it sticks with us or we forget its origin and it sticks with us. I happened to check to see if someone used my name for a city and for the longest time I was the only one and then I came across a pharmaceutical company that is now named it. So I'm hoping they don't sue me, even though I had the name first before proper copyright. Of all the things a pharma... XD
Yeah, I wouldn't worry too much about it. I did google it (I do this for my titles, too because I also strive for unique titles) and this popped up: www.amazon.com/Dark-King-Risin…Edit I've never heard of it though personally I wasn't sure if book titles are actually copyrighted, so I looked that up as well and found a couple articles that pretty much say book titles can't be copyrighted, only trademarks can be. So unless the title is tradmarked (which I doubt it is) you shouldn't have anything to worry about, even if you wish to publish / sell the book for money sometime in the future. ^^
Thank you, I haven't made any definite decisions so this exercise will be good for me to do market research with. What is appealing to the customer? It has to grab your attention to pick it up, and then from there, you have to work your butt off hard to sell them in the first paragraph to the first pages to get bought. The quality from there should never linger but its the first impressions that matter.
