That’s right, I’m holding a title contest. I’m going to be doing a dragon anthology in the fall of 2007 (submissions to be open next week, stay tuned for details) and naming this anthology has proved a challenge (I even made my husband brainstorm with me). So I’m turning to all of you for ideas.
To give you an idea of the direction you should go for titles, the only criteria for submission to the anthology are going to be that the book be a romance and that it somehow be connected to dragons–there may be dragons in it, it might be about dragon mythology, maybe someone is seeking a valuable dragon statue…my requirements aren’t specific for the purpose of getting a variety of genres, ideas, submissions.
What I need is a title for the print anthology because the individual books will already have titles, one would hope 😉 The requirements for the title? That it somehow speak to the idea of dragons between the covers of the book, even if it doesn’t outright say it, that it be catchy and not too long. Should be simple, right?
What can you win?
An acknowledgment in the print version of the book (if we use your title and if I remember to insert it into the print galleys)

Smoking hot prize if I do say so myself 🙂
To win, you must post in the comments your title suggestions. If you have multiple suggestions, try to keep it to a couple posts, not 25 posts of one title each. And no more than 25 title suggestions (since I know sometimes people will just keep posting random titles in an effort to win). If I use your title, you’re the winner. If I don’t use any of the suggestions, a winner will be chosen at random. I’m hoping for a title I can use though because titles are HARD! Contest is open to everyone–editors, authors, readers alike and the contest closes Tuesday, January 2nd. And I’m telling you, like I told my husband, if I don’t get something that I can work with, I’m going to call it Scaling Her Walls. *smirk*
