I’m trying to decide on a subtitle for my book, “A Girl Named Cord”. I’m thinking of something along the lines: Can a woman make it in the west?
What do you think?

      • Good point. Though, I think the ‘can a woman . . .’ question has been done a lot. What about a statement instead of a question? Again, out of my element. Think you need a wiser person than me here.

      • I know. But at the moment, I’m drawing a blank on something else to say. I’m hoping some of my beta readers will have an idea for me after they finish the book. This novel is aimed for a female audience, so maybe a few of the woman I know who love westerns will have an idea. Perhaps I should talk to Ionia…

  1. The first thing that popped into my head was “a modern tale of the old west” but I think it might be lame or worse, not the point.

    I’m not certain it needs a subtitle – perhaps working with the font size/type to fill the white space might help?

    • I love the sound of that, but sadly, I don’t think it fits my story. And I really don’t want a subtitle, but I have no way of changing the box size or the font size. 😦 But thank you for the idea! πŸ™‚

  2. I think it looks good with the subtitle which is not something that I have ever considered before but I guess it’s about the right one. I love Ionia’s suggestion and I think that Charles is right when he says perhaps look for a quote from the book. Is there like a cliffhanger point or a section in the book which really makes the reader sit up and take notice? Maybe something from there to grab the attention from the off? πŸ™‚

    • I’ve never thought about using subtitles either, I just wasn’t sure what they were for. And I’ve been going through the book looking for a little quote to use, how does this sound: “Gibson will pay for what he’s done.” I’m not sure about this yet, because I also like Ionia’s idea. Anyway, thanks for the suggestions! πŸ™‚

  3. I’m late to the party, because I’m catching up on blog reading. Ionia and Lavender Moon Girl’s suggestions are good ones. What did you decide to go with?
