Oh, to be entitled

From Loretta

Yswfrontsm200dpi I've spent a delightful week at Candice Hern's discussion board, talking with the Bluestockings about Your Scandalous Ways & my heroes & heroines, & sharing my addiction to crumbly old books.  It made a nice finish to long workdays of trying to beat the WIP into submission.

However, since the battle involved some forays into crumbly old books and buying a couple, that was fun, too.

What isn’t fun is coming up very soon, I think:  Titling the WIP.

Oh, sure, I have a working title: Gag Me With a SpoonBetty_huttton_spoonThis is my reaction to most of the titles I come up with.

I have a fallback title but I’m not in love with it.

Strangely enough, the majority of my books carry the titles I originally gave them.  Along with most of the traditional Regencies, the first three Carsington books have my original titles.  But Not Quite a Lady, like other of my books, involved considerable discussion with publishing professionals.  Likewise Your Scandalous Ways, which started out as Not Quite a Hero.

Chess_pieces The Lion’s Daughter started out as The Black Queen.
Captives of the Night started out as The Golden Prince.

Making titles isn’t easy.  Sometimes you nail it the first time.  Other times you end up with a title you don’t love but accept as the best you can do at the time.

Woman_with_knife We can’t just stick any title we want on a book.  There are titles that might sound “too contemporary” or “too romantic suspense” or “too mystery” or “too historical fiction” or too Monty Python.

Then there are good words and bad words, and these change over time as well as from publisher to publisher.

Many of you can easily list the current popular title words:  Scandal, Mistress, Secret…etc.  Listing them is one of those entertaining book games, like Make Fun of the Cover.

Some publishers' titles are distinctive, even to me, a writer stupendously oblivious to publishing trends.  At Harlequin, for instance, I noticed the interesting He/She titles:  Virgin Slave, Barbarian King; Scandalous Lord, Rebellious Miss; Notorious Rake, Innocent Lady.

1805courtshipcaricature Thing is, I suspect that Innocent Slut, Lazy Duke is not going to go over really well with my publisher.   

Sometimes authors are inspired.  The perfect title comes as a bolt from the blue.  Sometimes…not.

And sometimes readers (including me) think they can do better.  Or at least funnier.

What about you?  After seeing what you lot can do with photo captions, I’ve wanted to set you a titling challenge:  Pick a book or two or five and rename it/them.

To get you started, here are a few that came quickly to mind:

Frankenstein_1831_insidecoverwGone With the Wind
Sense and Sensibility
Moby Dick
Frankenstein
Great Expectations

But feel free to choose your own.  Some of you may have books you’ve been longing to rename.  Now’s your chance.  Serious or funny–it’s up to you.  A good chunk of the U.S. is enduring beastly hot, muggy weather at the moment.  We could use a laugh.

The winner will be chosen based on my whim.  Said winner gets an autographed copy of a Loretta Chase book of his/her choice.

But wait, there’s more!
Holland_hs_bkAnyone who wants to think up a title for my new book, here’s your opportunity.  I’ll provide no further details, so let your imagination run free.  If I actually end up stealing–I mean using it, you’ll win a special bonus prize…which I'll tell you about as soon as I figure out what it is.

  1. Just off the top of my head, here are a few renamed titles:
    Moby Dick = A Whale of a Bad Time;
    Gone with the Wind = I Will Make You Give a Damn! ;
    Frankenstein = Cloning for Dummies
    I will be back if I think of others! 🙂

  6. If only my books were properly sorted, I could probably find my copy of NOW ALL WE NEED IS A TITLE, which is a list of original titles of books that fortunately got rethought. The one I remember is the original title of THE GREAT GATSBY: TRIMALCHIO IN WEST EGG.
    How about: LADY CHATTERLEY’S LOVER—>YOU’RE A GAMEKEEPER AND I’M GAME

    To Find You Again
    Regretfully Mine
    Impossibly Yours
    Never to Lose You
    What the Lady Wants
    My Wicked Darling
    Intercepting Love
    The Patient Heart Waits
    A Vixen of My Own
    Love’s Departure
    Stealing Fate
    Encounter with the Devil
    A Lovely Road to Ruin
    Romancing the Rogue
    Unforgettable Melody
    Anyone But Him
    Blame It on Destiny
    Meant to Be Mine
    Entanglements of the Heart
    OK, that’s enough. You may roll your eyes now! 😉

  36. oh, please don’t do that, teasing us with something so delectable as a Monty Pythonesque title hint and then not sharing it – oh tell us, please please please???
    I like ‘Not Quite a Hero’. Much more distinctive, much better tie-in with book 1 of the series and (forgive me) not so generic. And now that hero and lady are covered, and assuming this is going to be a continuing series, it invites speculation on the next few:
    Not Quite an Antagonist turned Protagonist
    Not Quite a Sibling/Cousin/Bosom Friend of Almost Lady
    Not Quite a Jilted Fiance who then finds True Love
    Not Quite a Paid Companion who aspires to Almost Lady
    Not Quite a Long Lost Distant Relative
    Innocent Slut, Lazy Duke made me chuckle but I can see how it might be too much of a departure from precedent
    (taking self out of draw)

  41. Excellent work already! I’ve laughed out loud as well as said, “Hmmm” at some of the suggested titles for my WIP. I should reiterate–for those uninspired by the five titles I suggested to start with–that the game includes renaming _any_ book. That includes mine–so Maya & anyone else who has alternatives–here’s your chance.

  61. Glad I could give you a laugh, Patricia! All I can see whenever I read the title GWTW is Carol Burnett and that dumb curtain rod through the shoulders of her dress…I still laugh over that one. 😀

  101. It’s really hard to come up with interesting and original titles that also fit into what publishers are looking for, but here’s my stab at it~ Since I read that your WIP is going to be about a marriage of convenience (can’t wait!!), what about the title “Convenient (to) Love”? Or has that been used before? *g*
