    What's a better title?

    Discussion in 'Fantasy' started by Lone Wanderer, Jun 4, 2019.

    Simple enough, I'm struggling to find a great title for my fantasy novel. If you knew nothing else, and was just looking at books on a store shelf, which of these would stand out the most?

    First chapter in case you're interested :)

    I can't decided an it will only let me choose one. Definitely not either of the Cosmos ones. For me it's between Blood of the Ancients, Blood of the Witch or just plain old Witch (but I'm a sucker for one word titles).

    The title "Ancients" sounds very good.

    I like Blood of the Ancients, but without the Exodus-part (unless it's part of a series, in which case the Exodus might make more sense).

    To be perfectly honest, none of them would really compel me to pick them up. I like blood of the ancients best, but it still sounds kind of generic. I look at it and automatically think the cover would be of a svelte hero, magic sword in hand, looking up a curving staircase at some fair maiden wearing a long shapely gown who may or may not me either doing magic or being kidnapped (the maiden being kidnapped, not the gown, though that too may be a possibility).

    It's hard to say without knowing the content, but of the options Witch appeals to me most .
