This week I have mostly been thinking about what to call my next book.
It’s funny, because I already thought I knew, but then, it was just a working title that I got to used to, not necessarily the best title for taking it out to the market.
So, although I still do like ‘The Great Connection’ which it also thematically and literally a strong link to the book, it perhaps lacks a bit of promise/intrigue/explicit sci-fi allusions.
However, as I hope this may be the first of a series of books (it is written with possible sequels in mind, even though it has a concluding arc for the main character and plot) – I’m heading towards a ‘Series’ name (The Great Connection) and a title name…?
What better way to find out if this could work than by asking my millions of fans? (That’s you two by the way).
Here is my latest short-list encapsulated in a quick logo design which in no way reflects what it will eventually look like…
As you can see, I’m trying to bring out the ‘worlds’ side of the story… as after all, this is a ‘First Contact’ novel. Also the latent intrigue of waiting/waking… a story starting.
I’m not going to tell you what ‘Renatus’ is, to see if anyone does point out if that is a problem.
So, my millions of fan, what do you think? Do any of these make buoyant any vessels of any kind for you?

Marketing Budget: £0.69 (the price of the bottle of tonic I took around to a friend’s house yesterday to discuss book titles… they provided the gin).

I like worlds awake.
Thank you very much for letting me know! I like that one too…
I had a quick look at your book and I like what I see so far. The synopsis tells me that it is a very good quality book. If you are interested in book promotion, book reviews and other related services, please email me at pluxedo AT gmail.com to get screenshots and samples of my past client work.
