The Next Top Title Blogfest
Thanks to Slushpile Slut (love that name) for hosting The Next Top Title Blogfest! Follow the link to view all the other entries.
The rules are: No background, no log lines, no information. Just 3-5 titles. Okay, maybe I’ll explain in the comments. Well, here we go.
Pride, Prejudice, and Goggles
Sophia Stratton and the Fury Lords
The Stratton Chronicles. Book One: The Fury Lords
Okay, after I posted this, I thought the last couple sounded too YA so I had to add a really raunchy one:
The History of Steam Sluts of the Early 20th Century
Suggested by Valerie:
Sense, Sensibility, and Steam Sluts
Sophia Stratton and the Search for the Sea Key
Tea, Corsets, and Brass Goggles
I like Pride, Prejudice and Goggles... maybe Sense, Sensibility and Steam Sluts? :-PReplyDelete
@Valerie: I'm adding that one immediately. LOLReplyDelete
I'm with Valerie. I like the goggles one. Hers isn't half bad either.ReplyDelete
My problem is I kept reading 'fury' as 'furry' which changed things completely. Steamerica sounds like an 80's hair band to me. Although I like Pride, Prejudice, and Goggles, it's too reminiscent of and Zombies.ReplyDelete
I guess this is me not voting. I know, not helpful. I'm still stuck on Furry Lords and thinking furbies and lycanthropes. Sorry.
@Raquel: The problem with those is that my novel would somehow have to resemble those Jane Austin books. Blech.ReplyDelete
@Erin: Furry Lords FTW!
I like Sophia Stratton and the Fury Lords. It has a nice ring to it and it's easy to remember.ReplyDelete
I like Sophia Stratton and the Fury Lords. Very memorable and like RaShelle said it has a nice ring to it.ReplyDelete
Are we supposed to guess what your book is about just by the titles alone? Maybe I misunderstood Angie's rules... I'll go by and read them real quick!ReplyDelete
Okay, I'm back!! I think your story is steampunk (Nuh, really?) and it has to do with war and tyrants wanting to take over the world where women rule and men drool. ;)ReplyDelete
The title I like best is Pride, Prejudice, and Goggles. That one is fun, and places the setting just nicely!
Pride, Prejudice, and Goggles. It's clever, and makes people wonder what you're up to.ReplyDelete

I have to admit the Pride, Prejudice and Goggles is an eye-catching title. Would it make me reach out and take the book off the shelf? Yes.ReplyDelete
Sophia and the Fury Lords is my second choice. Lots of action and a little bit of luv.
I LOVE these:ReplyDelete
Pride, Prejudice, and Goggles
First one VERY clever. Second one, LOLOL. I would so pick that up if I read that title. DEFINITELY.
The Stratton Chronicles. Book One: The Fury Lords, seems so epic!! Love.it!ReplyDelete
I'm for Stratton Chronicles. I'd like the Goggles if it were attached to anything other than Pride & Prejudice...possibly my favorite book of all time, therefore it is sacred...SACRED I tell you.ReplyDelete
Steamerica I am seeing boiler room kinda grunge. I feel sweaty just thinking about it.
I liked Pride, Prejudice and Goggles, though Valerie's suggestion (comment #1) is very catchy, too. :)ReplyDelete
I like Steam Palace the best. 'Pride, Prejudice and Goggles' will fall flat in a pitch, I fear, because agents/publishers have gone way off mash-ups and I reckon they'll hear that title and think it's someone pulling another 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'.ReplyDelete
You guys are killing me. P,P&G was just a tongue-in-cheek title. The idea with that kind of book is to take the original story and rewrite it in a dift genre, which I haven't done. So I'd probably piss off Jane Austin fans. But it is pretty catchy.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the feedback, keep it coming!
Okay then, I like Steam Palace. There's some symbolism in it, I think?ReplyDelete

Two caught my eyes:ReplyDelete
- Steamerica: This is good if you're really trying to focus on steampunk (no more, no less)
- The Stratton Chronicles. Book One: The Fury Lords: You have to be careful with this because you're mixing both series title and book title. Fortunately, I think both work as stand-alones. (The Fury Lords is cool.)
I'm partial to this as my own efforts are similar, where I've got both a series title and am struggling w/book titles.
That's the problem, Andrew. You throw in a title for a joke, and it gets taken seriously. That's how one of my college friends got married! I like STEAM PALACE best. RolandReplyDelete
My fav is Steam Palace.ReplyDelete
Another one popped in my head after reading the furry comments. How about Steam Palace Fury? I don't like the PP&G one, either.
~That Rebel, Olivia
Steam Palace is what caught my attention. I'm really curious about the subject matter.ReplyDelete
Steam Palace is one that I like. It's interesting and definitely has my attention and now I relate that title to you, do to blogfests in the past.ReplyDelete
I was hoping the Pride, Prejudice, and Goggles one was tongue in cheek, not serious. I liked pride and prejudice, well the second half of the book, but don't care for anything else and it just comes off as a list even if I take out the book reference, which doesn't interest me in the way of a title.
I also like the Stratton Chronicles, as it gives the idea that this is a series and the title for book one connected with that is decent.
The last one you added, more adult one is just an lol. I have a book I bought on prostitution in the old west and I got it from Deadwood, South Dakota. For real. And that title reminds me of that book.
I added a few more at the bottom if anyone's still reading. You may have to refresh and not view in a reader.ReplyDelete
Thanks for all the comments, keep them coming!
Haha, I'm with those who said they read Fury as Furry.ReplyDelete
But, really, I think I'd go with Steam Palace, it intrigues me. And Pride, Prejudice and Goggles, of course!
I like 'Steam Palace'. Pride, Prejudice and Goggles is a bit too jane austen... and Sophia Stratton and the Fury Lords doesn't quite work for me... maybe The Fury Lords, a Sophia Stratton adventure, if you have sequels planned?
Hey Andrew!! Thanks for participating!! We all know I'm partial to sluts however, I really liked Tea, Corsets & Brass Goggles followed by The Fury Lords...The first one evokes a Victorian setting interwoven with the changing times due to innovation. And the 2nd gives a more epic feel that is hard for me to pinpoint...But I like it :) Hope the Blogfest helps in some way!ReplyDelete
