Hi! I loved BooksandCaffeine's idea so...
I really need help changing the name of my novel. I think the name sounds to religious and my book has nothing to do with religion! Any ideas? (Its about smart kids put through a test which could cost them their lives)

Addison Carmichael | 77 comments How about something like--"Ace or Die" or "Death Test" or "Passing the Test" or "A-B-C-Die". Hard to suggest anything without the basic plotline. Either way, you should pick a charged image that represents the book. That would also help you in its cover design. Hope this at least gives you some inspiration.

Hmm, I like a lot of the suggestions Addison gave. I would literally pick up any of those because they sound so thrilling y'know?
You could even just put the name of the test as the title. Like how ''The Hunger Games'' is the name of the competition/show.

I've been thinking about giving away chapter samples of my novel The Mortal Tests - thoughts


message 23: by LaNona (new)

LaNona | 1170 comments Mod
I'm thinking of doing the same as I sneak peak on my blog in a couple months!

It'll give your readers a feel of the story and help get them excited for it when it comes out!

good idea ill have to get some last minute things done and ill post the giveaway on my blog hahahaha


message 25: by Addison (new)

Addison Carmichael | 77 comments Sneak Peeks are usually a good way to drive interest on a website or blog, but usually right before release date (that's usually when I give them). Desara, not sure how far you're close to release. Is it finalized/finished? If so, I wouldn't give away several full chapters. Just do a SP on your blog of a partial to whet readers' appetites--like a prologue or all or partial of the first chapter. If it isn't finalized yet, I wouldn't do anything. You'll end up changing so much in future rewrites that the SP would then be useless. Anyhow, just some suggestions.

Thank-you for the tips! I'm self-publishing so I think I will make release date closer to Fall and Thank-you!

Omg! I havent updated! well here is the rundown:

1. I have stopped writing the Mortal Tests because I lost love in writing it and I want my debut to be something I LOVED WRITING and that wasn't going to be it so I shelved it.

2. I am still working on my poetry collection but when ths poems come they come. And I have decided on the title: Spring Time in the Cold which was a poem I wrote a while back.
3. I'll be publishing chapters from Love and Theatre whenever I am able to write one. The first chapter is already up on Wattpad! And I am fixing up Chapter 2 so it can be ready for posting and it will lead the story to a good place.
4) I have been starting stories randomly and I want to diligently write one soon when I have time and motivation and when I have a better idea of the story, especially since I am pancing.
