Titles

» Posted on Sep 28, 2005 in Blog | 8 comments

I am title challenged. I have to come up with a new title for one of my Love Inspired Suspense books and I need help. A short synopsis of the book:
Emma witnesses the murder of her brother and has to flee for her life through the woods because the killers are after her. In the dark she ends up on the highway into town in the path of an oncoming car driven by Colin, a minister with a SUV full of teenagers. She tries to get out of the way but is shot and spins into the approaching vehicle. Guilt ridden, Colin pledges to protect her from the killers who are still after her, even though she doesn’t remember much concerning her brother’s murder. Temporarily blind (no physical reason for it), Emma reluctantly accepts Colin’s assistance. They are thrust into the mystery surrounding her brother’s murder, fighting the bad guys as well as their feelings for each other. Any suggestions?

  1. I’ll be thinking of a title cause I’m pretty good at them, but boy I can’t wait to get my hands on that story! :0)

    Hugs.

  2. I totally suck at titles…

    Fighting Blind

    LOL well I though I was going to have more than one idea… apparently not. Sorry.

  3. Sweet Protector

    Tender Protector

    Protecting Emma

    Through the Night
    (or Into the Night)

    Out of the Darkness
    (this has a twofold meaning, she ran out of the darkness into the path of his vehicle, and I’m assuming essentially she comes out of the darkness of her blindness, but it still sound suspenseful to me.)

    This Present Danger
    (may be too much like This Present Darkness by Frank Peretti or Clear and Present Danger, but I checked amazon.com, there’s not another book by this exact title.)

    Sorry, Margaret, that’s all I can think of for now. If I think of something better, I’ll come back. 🙂

  4. Okay, it’s probably been done but the first thing that pops in my head is BLIND WITNESS.

  5. BLIND FAITH,
    is the best I can come up with!

  6. Maybe it’s too cliche, but what about “My Brother’s Keeper” since the death of her brother will have to be solved and she’s blinded emotionally from the trauma. Sounds like a good story!

  7. Blind Site (instead of hind site) or Blindsite or Blind Sight
    Pledge of Honor
    In His Sights
    Through Emma’s Eyes
    Through the Eyes of Emma
    Colin’s Honor
    In Plain Sight
    Eyes of the Heart
    Sacred Vision
    In Emma’s Eyes
    Blind Evidence
    Evidence of the Heart
    Blind Eye-witness
    Low Visibility
    Lethal Gaze
    Opaque Glimpse (because murder is dark. LOL!)
    Cloak of Evidence

    Okay they’re getting goofy, I obviously need to stop typing and go to bed. LOL! Squirl

  8. I want to thank everyone for giving me some good suggestions on a title. I have made a list to give to my publisher. It will be their decision.
