Packing Madness & Informal Title Contest

No. Actually, I’m NOT done packing.

Yes. I *am* freaking out.

Most of the stuff is laid out and ready to go though – I just need to get things in place.  (And grrr – my new video card appears to have crapped the bed. Always, always things just fall apart as soon as I’m trying to get ready to leave.)

But in the meantime, I’ve been asked to come up with some title suggestion for BoD 2, and most likely the series name.

Now, I’m going to be brainstorming on the plane tomorrow, but I thought I’d open this up to suggestions.  My favorite gets an ARC of book 2, whenever it comes out, as a prize. (I can’t guarantee it will actually *be* the title – publisher gets the last word on that, but I always like to hear other opinions.)

As a side note, Comb of Darkness and Headband of Darkness are my informal names for book 2 and 3, thanks to KAK…and no, they can’t be used. Also? Army of Darkness, while funny, doesn’t help me much – but if someone wants to draw a picture of Abby or Ion wearing an “S-Mart” shirt I will love you forever.

I don’t actually know if the word brush or darkness has to be in there, but if you have ideas, toss’em in the comments below. (i.e. A Brush of Shadow, for example or Doorway to Darkness. Yeah, that’s wretched. I know. >_<)

I’ll keep this open until I get back from RT on Sunday. 😀

    How about “In the Shadows”? *shrug* That’s mt best idea. 🙁

  2. I’d suggest keeping the “Darkness” part — maybe DEEPER INTO DARKNESS or FACING DARKNESS?

    It’s harder to say without knowing what Abby’s going to go through in the next one. Feel free to tease to that end. 😉

    How about Approaching Forbidden Darkness or Where Darkness Lurks or When Darkness Falls?
    Sorry I put three I hope that’s okay??

    I’m not sure this contest is still open, but I’ll give a few titles anyway. It is hard to come up with a title without knowing more of what the book is about. How about Out of the Shadows, At a Crossroads, or Path to Darkness. I can’t think of any others. How about Who Needs Brystion When They Can Have Phineas? Ha ha, I’m kidding, but I do love that unicorn.

    I do like your idea for A Brush of Shadow. How about A Touch of Darkness, Into the Darkness, or From the Darkness. I’m sure you will come up with something much more creative, but I’m procrastinating doing my work and this is a lot more fun.

    Hmmm, how about Heart of Darkness? I can’t think of anything else.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions guys! Sorry it took so long for me to comment back here, but things got a little messy in real life. 🙂

    I’ll be announcing the winner soon!
