Hello again, blogosphere pals! I'm back from my little hiatus with query materials, new pages for Book #2 in my space opera series and some awesome beta feedback.
What have you guys been up to?
The flurry of new books being released this fall also got me thinking about titles, and it struck me as funny how vastly different literary and genre titles are in style and tone. This isn't really a shocking news flash, of course, but I'd never stopped to think about it before.
As a genre gal myself, I'm drawn to those kinds of titles--punchy, intuitive, action-oriented. Whereas, literary titles often are more subtle, thought-provoking and beautiful in sort of a you-won't-understand-this-until-you-read-me kind of way.
It made me wonder what some of our favorite genre books might be called if they were accidentally stocked on the literary shelves:
Dragons in Winter - Game of Thrones
The Secret Keeper's Godson - Harry Potter
When Faces Lit the Sky - Hunger Games
Of Oceans Born - Percy Jackson
Love's Undying Thirst - Twilight
Okay, I had way too much fun with that!
