Ten Alternative Titles for FEAR THE DROWNING DEEP

Having a critique partner like the inimitable Ami Allen-Vath is the best. Especially when she tags me for hilarious writing games like this one! Ami is the author of the forthcoming YA contemporary novel PROM BITCH, which you should definitely check out if you haven't already. :)

So, here's the game we're playing today: "Scroll through your manuscript and stop on a random place. Whatever you land on becomes one of ten terrible titles. I picked the first short sentences I randomly came across.”

And now, feast your eyes on Ten Alternative Titles for FEAR THE DROWNING DEEP:

 1. I Know Where She Lives

2. The Horrible Picture

3. The Joys of Needlepoint

4. He Was Really Naked

5. An Evil Old Witch

6. Creatures With Too Many Teeth

7. A Chorus of Sniffling

8. There's Nothing Out There

9. The Scent of Fish Guts

10. Grandad's Ghost


...Hilariously, looking at all those titles, they actually sum up a lot of FEAR! Next, I'll tag a few author friends to join the silliness:

Ava Jae, Author of BEYOND THE RED

Stephanie Strohm, Author of THE TAMING OF THE DREW

Be sure to watch for their forthcoming YA novels, and thanks for reading! Until next time.
