War of Nightfall Titles

worst-book-covers-titles-9

So I’m working on book titles for the next series and having trouble.  Originally, I had cool names and some not so cool ones.  Honestly, I’m seeing that I flushed this out during a time where I thought I’d get right back to it.  These outlines are going to be harder than I thought since I have so little to work with.  Oops.  I’m currently thinking of doing one word titles, so I’ll put those down with the older ones in parenthesis.  Book 2 is the only one that has stayed the same throughout since it’s a character’s name.

Anyway, I thought I’d list them here and get some feedback.

War of Nightfall

  1. Evolution (Realm of the Night/Dawn Fangs/Natural Selection)
  2. Lost
  3. Temptation (Queen of Apelios)
  4. Antithesis (Durag’s Wrath/The Orb of Durag)
  5. Hunger (Mistress of the Corrupted/The Ravenous Ones)
  6. Fear (Stronger/Clash of the Abominations)
  7. Anarchy (Children of Anarchy)
  8. Eulogy (Clyde/Death of Shadows)

I Will Try This Again with Synopses on Thursday!

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. Wow! I love the one name titles. Makes it real clear what the book is about.

  2. Hmmm, mixed feelings here. Some of them are pretty close to other titles (Lost) and none of them says vampire to me. Fangs for the Memories, and Peg O’ My Heart are old vampire jokes, but seem to get the point across. I prefer the longer titles in parenthesis. — you asked.

    I also love the one-word titles.

  4. One word titles are tough. I know they show well on covers, but I don’t feel they really give a good enough hint to what’s Inside. I thought about Alliances for Naked Alliances. Alliances sounds more dystopian, or sci-fi, or, IDK…a war story? Throwing Naked from the Naked Eye series just put a twist on it that suited the style of the book…the niche genre it belongs to. (And there was another book with the title: Alliances. So, not very original. There are tons of crime novels with one word titles…”Busted”, “Toxic”, “Client”, “Ungoverned”. “Dodgers”,…and so on. I tend to pass over them. Unless the cover really sucks me in. Then I’ll read the blurb.

    • Alliances definitely sounds like a war one. I can see how they don’t explain much, but I’ve also been told that my longer titles reveal too much. It’s like you can’t win. Starting to wonder if I should do a combination and use what feels right for the story. The two word titles of the Bedlam series seem to work, but keeping the theme going is a little bit of a head scratcher.

  5. Surfed back through, because it’s an interesting topic. Looks like I’m in the minority. If they all had the series name, one word titles makes more sense.

    I like the one-word titles. But I can’t wait to see the synopses.

  7. Coming up with titles is an evolving process. My Frank Rozzani series uses the name Frank in every title and something arriving at a title is harder than writing the book.

    • Definitely one of the first hurdles. I do something similar with my Bedlam series where Bedlam will be in every 2 word title. ‘Legends of Windemere’ didn’t have a theme though, so I’m swimming in uncharted waters for myself. Hopefully I present better ones tomorrow after I do more work on them.

  8. One-word titles have definitely been a trend of the past few years. You might want to search on Amazon by your titles and make sure they haven’t already been used. Or if they were used, it was by something unrelated so there won’t be confusion.

    • I wouldn’t be surprised if most of them are used. With one word titles being popular, all the juicy ones and their synonyms are out there. ‘Lost’ and ‘Anarchy’ certainly, so I’ll be depending a lot on the series title too.
