Which Title Works?

Post by Michael » Fri Jan 27, 2012 7:15 am

If any...

I've picked up my old NaNoWriMo from 2006 and am thinking of turning it into an eBook for the Kindle. (Just to see what happens.)

The Title is: Pepperoni, Extra Murder
I'm considering: Pepperoni, Extra Death

Which do you think has a better sound to it?

Or might you have a better suggestion?

Brief Synopsis: When a routine pizza delivery turns deadly, everybody thinks the driver did it. But his story just doesn't ring true. Is he admitting to a crime he didn't commit to get the attention he so desperately craves? The feuding romanciers - a relationship advice columnist and a late night love songs dj - both have a reason to find out.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

The title sounds great, though if you were to change it, I'd would have it as:

Pepperoni with extra murder.

Prefer murder, unless of course it turns out to not be murder, in which case that's kind of a *beep* to the reader

I guess I picked it to begin with for a reason!

SPOILOR ALERT

There was Murder in the Mews where the victim committed suricide.

Why, do you want to read it? :)

Thanks for asking... After editing a few chapters I realized that the book is horribly written and needs A LOT of work. So it's back to the back burner.

I'm also trying to finish up my murder mystery party game, "(Who's Buried) Under the Big Top". I get emails constantly from people who've played my "Sour Grapes of Wrath" game and want to play more. But of course when I say "trying to fish up" I really mean "hoping it will finish itself"... lol. I work on it every once in awhile. I think part of the problem is that I'm retrofitting an old game I wrote to a new format. I should start working on something new. I've wanted to do a Halloween themed mystery for a long time. One of these days...
