The Next Top Title Blogfest

This is my first Blogfest (hosted by the gracious wench Slushpile Slut) so *fingers crossed, big sigh* here I go:

Keep in mind I haven’t researched to see if any of the titles are already out there. They are just ones that popped in my head for this Blogfest…


WIP ONE:


No Shame for the Wicked

Immortal Dance

Stiletto Hellbound

Hot on the Heels of Hell


WIP TWO:


Her Deadly Package

Killing Time

Hunter’s Lover

Secret Denied


Okay, there's my entries - no laughing or snickers please! If this blogfest wasn't such fun, I'd never have subjected thoughts off the top of my head for review!! LOL! Now, get over to Slushpile's blog and check out all the other entries!

WIP One: Maybe I'd choose Hot on the Heels of Hell

WIP Two: I love Killing Time, but disappointingly so do many others if you look it up on Amazon. Killing is so "in your face", though, eye catching. Killing Package? Killing Stiletto? Hunter's Kill?

I'm afraid I wasn't any help. I've been struggling with mine for a year.

LOVE Stiletto Hellbound. That's a great title! Quirky and original.

Can't choose one for WIP 2, none really spark my interest. Though, Her deadly package is kinda interesting, it makes me think of a transvestite, because the use of package makes me think of male genetalia. LOL Ok, I'm a bit weird ... ;O)

Melissa said...

No Shame for the Wicked. It just makes me think of all the things a wicked person could do without feeling sorry for any of it.

Her Deadly Package. This REALLY makes me want to know what her package is - even if it a little weird like Alliterative Allomorph's train of thought suggests.

Susan Fields said...

I think I like Immortal Dance best for WIP 1. I don't know,it makes me think of scary, immortal creatures dancing in the moonlight.

I love Killing Time for Wip 2, but I see someone else already commented that it's already very popular. It still gets my vote.

Sangu said...

I kind of like 'Stiletto Hellbound', it's quirky and interesting, and I also like 'Killing Time'. 'Her Deadly Package' is not a very good title in my opinion, sorry, unless making your reader snicker is what you wanted!

Renae said...

Off topic...I love your background. Gorgeous.

Now back to the titles. Love, love Stiletto Hellbound! I would grab that one off the shelf.

For the second WIP I'd say Her Deadly Package.

Kris & Kels said...

I like No Shame for the Wicked, and I also like Stiletto Hellbound. They both made me want to know what was up.

For your second WIP, I like Secret Denied and Killing Time. :)

"No Shame for the Wicked" is great, but I also like Stiletto.

"Her Deadly Package" is pretty good, too. The others seem a bit cliche.

RaShelle said...

Hi -
WIP1 Stiletto Hellbound
WIP2 Her Deadly Package

Also, I like Hot on the Heels of Hell too. It's just fun to say out loud. Great job. LOL

Suzie said...

Thank you for your honest opinions Melaine, Alliterative, Melissa, Susan, Sangu, Renae, Kelsey, Bryan, and RaShelle... You've given me a lot of food for thought! A

nd I think I'll use some of those titles in future WIPS! This is a blast! What a great 1st blogfest! I'm off to ya'lls blogs! I can't wait! :)

Suzie said...

@Renae... Thank you! I changed it yesterday. I found it on a really cool website called Shabby Blog. They have tons of pretty things! :)

Roland D. Yeomans said...

No Shame for the Wicked

That has teases of fun and danger. What agent or reader wouldn't pick up that volume?

For the second one, I would use

LOVER OR HUNTER?

But I've cheated with that last one and added mine. Sorry, Roland

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I like Immortal Dance and Secret Denied. I tend to like shorter titles that give a hint of what's to come.

Dawn Embers said...

Interesting how a few different people are doing the number of titles for two different novels. Nice work on yours.

wip 1 - I think I like Hot on the Heels of Hell. It's different, a bit long for me but still the three H words catch my attention. I like the Stiletto part of the one title but not sure I like it with Hellbound. Maybe that's because I keep reading it as Hellhound instead of the actual word, which is Hellbound. The others are okay, but depends really on the genre the novel is placed in and the overall plot.

wip 2 - They all are a little generic for me. Killing does grab attention but I don't often read books with killing involved heavily or in the title. That's just me though. Hunter's Lover sounds more like a Harlequin type book.

Suzie said...

Thank you Roland, Sharon, and Dawn!

@Dawn - That WIP is actually aimed for Harlequin and I was trying to go with the overall theme they tend to give off. Or, at least, the theme I feel they give off.

To be honest... none of the titles for my WIP2 is working for me. I'm glad to see it's not just me!!

Truly, I want to thank everyone for giving honest feedback on these titles. I have a thick skin. So, unless your just unusually cruel in your opinions, I don't get my feelings hurt.

Olivia Herrell said...

I like No Shame for the Wicked. Is stiletto referring to a knife or heels? When I first read it I thought heels, which was reinforced by the last title. If it's heels I like Hell on Stilletos.

I also like the one Roland threw out for #2, Hunter or Lover?

cassandrajade said...

I actually really liked Stiletto Hellbound but probably because it made me smile, so it may not be the most appropriate title.
Thanks for sharing these and pointing us in the direction of the blogfest.

KM said...

"No Shame for the Wicked." Reminds me of a Broadway show with a similar name and how awesome it is. :)

Theresa Milstein said...

I've looked at a bunch of these title blogfest entries, and this has to be the hardest one. You have a gift for coming up with awesome titles.

WIP I: No Shame for the Wicked

WIP II: Secret Denied

Clara said...

Omg, are you serious? How much cooler Stiletto Hellbound can be? I´d buy it on the spot, great going! =D

I like Secret Denied for the second!

Suzie said...

@Olivia - yes, stiletto is for heels (though to be honest, I wasn't aware that it could mean a knife too. Learn something new everyday, huh?) :)

@Cassandra - Thanks for your honesty. :) And your very welcome. I have a list of several upcoming blogfests, as well, on my sidebar.

@KM - I don't follow broadway but I just love that title. I've renamed WIP1 to No Shame for the Wicked.

@Theresa - *major grin* Thanks for much for the awesome comment!!

@Clara - I know, right? I liked several of those titles so much that I've got future WIPs I'm playing with so I can use them!

@Everyone who posted - You guys are awesome! Thanks so much for making my first blogfest memorable!

Tessa Conte said...

I like Immortal Dance.
No Shame for the Wicked is nice, too, but somehow it sounds familiar already... Stiletto Hellbound is nice in and of itself but I don't think it flows as well as a title.

For WIP 2, Killing Time.
Her Deadly Package sounds a bit...dirty ; P (maybe I should get my mind out of the gutter but well, what can I say...).
Hunter's Lover is nice, but I've read a two-book combo called Hunter's Oath and Hunter's Death and having one (unconnected) called Hunter's Lover seems odd to me.
Secret Denied is also nice, not quite the same 'ring' to it, though. Seems more like a chick lit title (that's not what you're aiming for, right? If yes, sorry...)

Thanx for popping by my blog and joining the Blogfest of Death! Should be a Ball! *cheers* ehm *mwahahaha-s*

Slushpile Slut said...

Hey hey Suzie!! So happy my blogfest could be your first!! Hope it helped...Okay. I know everybody loves Stiletto Hellbound....but it reads awkward to me for some reason I can't pinpoint so I'm choosing by far & away, Hot on the Heels of Hell...effin love it!!! Evokes, chase, capture, fantasy and a stylish bitch chasing a demon...what's not to love?

For WIP #2 Killing Time because it's intriguing and non specific, can be construed so many diff ways!Thx for participating :)
