Not every title, of course. The Tuyo-series titles are pretty easy! Pick a name from something in the book and there you go, boom!
The Death’s Lady titles are much, much harder.
What should I do with this novella?
a) Give up and call it “Kuomat” after the main character.
b) Call it “Redemption” after the main theme.
c) Find a phrase from some John Donne poem or some other poem so that it matches the trilogy.
d) Make up some poetic sounding phrase.
I’m really not sure! I’ve looked at a fair bit of Donne’s poetry and nothing leaps out at me. Ditto with Milton’s Paradise Regain’d. I would really like a phrase that suggests redemption. Instead, the phrases that have caught my eye are things like “All Dead Years” and “Days Forsaken,” which are not necessarily inapposite, but certainly sound excessively grim. The story itself is not as grim as these titles would make it sound.
The cover is now underway, so … I had better think about this. A lot. Really soon.
