message 1: by Chris (new)

Chris Jags | 78 comments If you were to come up with a catchy slogan for your writing, what might it be?

Y'know, like "Make vampires great again!", only definitely not that.


message 2: by G.G. (new)

G.G. (ggatcheson) | 2491 comments haha I would have to go with what my MC would say.

"For star's sake, not another idiom!"


message 3: by Amie (new)

Amie O'Brien | 280 comments Okay...my real slogan for my novel is...

"She couldn't escape his love. He couldn't escape his past."

But if you are looking for something more on the fun side...

"Missionary girl wreaks havoc on a harem."


message 4: by Christina (new)

Christina McMullen (cmcmullen) "Big words: We got 'em. Don't expect us to know what they mean though."


message 5: by Don (new)

Don H.M (theayatollahofrock) | 3 comments This is a work in progress....
"He got rejected by his crush, Now he crushes anyone that rejects him. A coming of age story about about the everyday struggle of being a dark lord and dealing with incompetent servants, pesky heroes every few thousand years and most importantly love"

This one i am definitely using:
"....ulated on my toothbrush and forgot to throw it away and ended up using it today. What are you writing down. No you can't quote me on this and put it on the back of your stupid book" - Mason, Age 21, Used the wrong kind of paste to brush his teeth.

message 8: by Thomas (new)

Thomas Everson (authorthomaseverson) | 424 comments "Turning heroes into antiheroes since 2014."

Chris Jags | 78 comments Thomas wrote: ""Turning heroes into antiheroes since 2014.""

That's a noble cause. I like it.


message 10: by Angel (new)

Angel | 216 comments This is the best way I can describe my writing in a slogan:

This is a Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory system. It cannot be reset. Those who enter may not be equipped. Certain restrictions may apply.


message 11: by Sherri (new)

Sherri Moorer (sherrithewriter) | 82 comments I have one. It's "what do you see?" My website is called "Dark Mirrors," and it's about what readers can find of themselves in my writing. www.sherrithewriter.com


message 12: by Nat (new)

Nat Kennedy | 320 comments I think an 'author' slogan is pretty useful. Like Danielle Steel's is something like 'keeps you up all night'. I would love something catchy... right now I've something lame like 'magical romance and erotica'. Sigh. Wittiness is eluding me.

How about?

A magical smorgasbord that will melt your senses or set them on fire. Or both. The possibilities are limitless.

Welcome to the Mad*West


message 15: by Rohvannyn (new)

Rohvannyn Shaw | 189 comments That's a cool idea. Maybe I should have a slogan too... my trouble is, the things I write about are pretty varied. I wonder how I can incorporate all my various themes into that? I always was terrible at sound bites.

Maybe that?

"I always was terrible with sound bites."

Or

"Challenging expectations since 1979."


message 16: by Gerard (new)

Gerard Doris | 11 comments For my adventure series I would say:
"Old school action. Modern world."


message 17: by G.G. (last edited Jan 30, 2017 06:55PM) (new)

G.G. (ggatcheson) | 2491 comments I had totally forgotten. I do have one. I used it before and will use it again. :P

We are not alone.

The other I mentioned is more of an inside joke.


message 18: by Missy (new)

Missy Sheldrake (missysheldrake) | 252 comments "Where everything is sparkly."


message 19: by Janet (new)

Janet Lynn | 31 comments My husband and I write a series together. One year I sent out several press releases and put the following:

"I've been trying to kill my husband for years and he just won't die."

I got several call backs. I guess this would work for an MC.

Love it!


message 21: by Amy (new)

Amy Hamilton | 91 comments I've used "I never claimed to be sane"
"I do whatever the little voices tell me to do"
"Fuelled by caffeine" and
"Do not disturb, disturbed enough already" about me rather than what I write. Pretty much the same thing though-I should put them in somewhere.


message 22: by Nat (new)

Nat Kennedy | 320 comments Ha! Those are all good.


message 23: by Justin (new)

Justin (justinbienvenue) | 787 comments "If Poetry is dead then I wish to bring it back"


message 24: by Isaac (new)

Isaac Alder | 60 comments I am particularly fond of one from a web-comic called xkcd: "I'm So Meta, Even This Acronym" I think it's clever enough to be worth sharing here.

For myself, I'd maybe say: "Modern Gothic from a Gothic Modern"


message 25: by Matthew (new)

Matthew R. | 4 comments Slogan for what I write:
"Your moral compass will malfunction between these pages."


message 26: by Owen (new)

Owen O'Neill (owen_r_oneill) | 1509 comments "Now how did that happen?"

or maybe just: "Oops..."


message 27: by Jane (new)

Jane Jago | 888 comments My beta reader says my slogan is.

"Yeah. Whatever"


message 28: by Samantha (new)

Samantha | 57 comments For a Les Miz fan fic I wrote the slogan was: "From one of the most beloved stories ever told....comes a new story."


message 29: by R. (new)

R. Billing (r_billing) | 228 comments I think the slogan for the Arcturian Confederation series would have to be:

"Girl power gets interstellar capability."

or:

"If women fly spaceships they can be embarrassingly good at it."

Jane herself might put it as:

"I can't leave live bad guys lying around. They make the galaxy look untidy."


message 30: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Jensen (kdragon) | 468 comments "Here there be monsters... and explosions."

Or maybe...

"A volatile experiment gone horribly wrong. Or as the gang likes to call it, just another Tuesday."


message 31: by Tony (new)

Tony Blenman | 92 comments "Every time I kill him, he shows a different face."

or

"Darkness embraces the light ... yet fails to prevail.


message 32: by Alfred (new)

Alfred Eyrie | 42 comments I suppose I could use one of the things I write in the front of my book when I sign it.

"Just because they can't see it, that doesn't mean you're crazy."


message 33: by Nathan (new)

Nathan Bush | 57 comments I might write something like:

"Analytical cop seeks cold-blooded killer for lock-in uptown, will bring own cuffs."


message 34: by C.B., Beach Body Moderator (new)

C.B. Archer | 1090 comments Mod
I have decided that my main slogan for my entire franchise is:
- Butt Stuff Happens

Hooray!


message 37: by J C (new)

J C Steel (jcsteel) No-one's going to top C.B.'s :)

Knives, spaceships, and dirty fighting - who says a mercenary cult can't be fun?

Although frankly 'Malign humour and running with sharp implements' would work equally well for mine.


message 38: by Jane (new)

Jane Jago | 888 comments Big fat lies


message 39: by Vid (new)

Vid Jr. (Vbuggs) | 3 comments Inside the Mind of A Clusterfock
