Do Any of These Titles Grab You?

leather-book-preview[1]Two weeks ago, I blogged about my struggle to find a title for my 6th Casey Holland mystery, I’ve been giving titles a lot of thought since then, especially since I’m closing in on finishing the 6th draft.

Thanks to all of those who provided helpful comments, and I’ve managed to come up with a shortlist of candidates. To me, each of the eight listed below speaks to the theme and/or crimes in the book, but let’s approach this from another angle.

Suppose you were browsing through the mystery/thriller section in a bookstore, and saw a title on a book that you knew nothing about. Would any of these titles make you want to pick up the book and read the back cover? Maybe flip through a few pages?

  1. Senseless Acts
  2. The Blade Man
  3. Relentless
  4. Ruthless
  5. Dead Set
  6. Hell-Bent
  7. Rage
  8. Enraged

Please let me know which one(s) capture your attention, or if none of them do, and thanks again for your input!

  1. Something about The Blade Man works. I think it´s because you would want to know what or who The Blade Man is. It poses a question. So much could be done with the cover too.
