    YEA!!! Freal Attraction is the title of the erotica!!!!! Atleast I got in somehow. Thanks you made my day.

    This week I am thanking my fellow bloggers by having you pick my book trailer. My way of thanking you for being so supportive of me.

    I can’t think up a title but the urban one intrigues me.
    here is a picture of what I think an urban cat looks like. Maybe it will spark some creative flow. http://www.pbase.com/mardoli/image/54985609

    Graffiti Cat
    Alley Cat
    hmm… got to think on this more

  4. Tamara August 23, 2007 at 5:46 PM #

    Street Shifters
    Shadow Shifters
    Cat’s Kiss
    Hiss and Kiss
    Purrfect Tales
    Feral Hearts
    Feral Love
    Feral Tails
    City Tails

    (borrowed from Kipling)
    Wet Wild Woods
    Wet Wild Roofs
    By Their Wild Lone

    (just to be silly)
    Feral Tail
    Here, Kitty, Kitty
    Kittehs in Luv

    OT question: 10-12 weeks is Samhain’s current average waiting period for submission responses. I just wanted to ask if that includes partial submissions. If there’s no response on a partial in, say, four or five weeks, is it better to wait the full 12 weeks before a polite inquiry to make sure a response wasn’t sent that we might have accidentally thrown out with the spam or just not received due to squiffy servers? I hope this is not an inapproriate question here. Please go ahead and delete it if it is.

    Hi Tamara, thanks for your contributions, I’ll have to look at them more closely.

    I don’t mind you asking a question here. If you sent a partial and have the full ready now and would like to submit that in its place, you can send it to the same email address and let them know that since it’s ready you’d like the editor to have the full, just in case. It’s no problem!

    For the Urban Fantasy:
    Scratches in the Dark
    Shadow Games
    Fangs and Tails
    Urban Tails

    For the Romance:
    Entwined Tails or Tales

  7. Angie August 23, 2007 at 7:21 PM #

    Hmm, I like Shadow Shifters and Shadow Games.

    I must admit Urban Tails made me laugh πŸ˜‰

  8. Jessica August 23, 2007 at 8:29 PM #

    LOL. I’m glad you liked it.

  9. Melissa August 24, 2007 at 8:25 AM #

    More inspiration…


    a few more title suggestions.

    Purr for me..
    Bast’s Playground
    Hissy Fit (ok, that may have been used as a chick lit title…but it’s still cute)
    Urban Pride
    Bast’s Pride

  10. Jackie C August 24, 2007 at 8:42 AM #

    For the Urban:
    The Purrfect World.

    I’m still thinking about the other one.

    So far I seem stuck on “Prowlers”.”I’m stuck on Prowlers and Prowlers are stuck on me.”
    Sorry, could not resist.
    Time for coffee.

  11. Lesley August 24, 2007 at 10:01 AM #

    For the Urban Fantasy:
    Kitten with a Whip (Okay, I blatantly stole that off a postcard I sent to my husband before we got married)
    Kitten’s Got Claws

    Fluffy Wishes and Catnip Dreams

    Have I mentioned I’m not the best title writer? hehe :loser:

  12. December August 24, 2007 at 10:38 AM #

    Darn, mine have already been suggested. Feral Attraction is great!

  13. Kaye Chambers August 24, 2007 at 12:56 PM #

    Okay – I’ll admit to having absolutely NO suggestion on titles because my feet haven’t touched the ground, yet. :cheer:

    Urban Tails made me laugh, though. *grins*

    Thank you for the very warm welcome and the laugh.

    For the Romance One:

    What about Pounce: Tails of Two Kitties

    Or Pounce: A Romance Shifter Anthology

  15. BevL(QB) August 24, 2007 at 3:08 PM #

    Urban Tails made me laugh, too! Good One!
    And that made me think of…

    Tails from the City
    Sex and the Kitty (too chick-lit?)
    A Tail of Two Kitties
    When Fur Flies
    Musk-Cat Love (sorry, couldn’t help it)
    Stray Cat Jive
    Alley Cats
    Cattery Row
    Tom, Dick and Hairy (switch the words around and you’ll realize what popped in my head FIRST)

    I don’t know enough about the romance stories, so in case one is historical or has someone with the last name Knight…

    A Knight’s Tail

    See, Jaci did this to us the other day. I don’t know about anyone else, but this stuff gets stuck in my head and makes me crazy!

    BTW, CONGRATS to all the authors involved!

  16. Cathy August 24, 2007 at 10:31 PM #

    great suggestions so far. All I’ve got is Feline Lust.

  20. Jessica August 26, 2007 at 8:47 PM #


  21. MaryM August 30, 2007 at 12:06 AM #

    Ummm. English isn’t my first language so finding titles is not easy. The only one I can think of would be My Favorite Feline for the romance :).

  22. MaryM August 31, 2007 at 12:33 PM #

    Thought of a few more!

    Feline Delights
    All Night Long
    Purrfect for you :giggle:
    Furriously yours

    Urban Fantasy:
    Night Prowl
    Animal promises
    Wild Nights
    Shifters do it Best :muahaha:

    Although I think some of these titles might fit the other category *shrug*. No idea what they’re worth, the searching was fun :).

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
