So for a while now, I've been referring to the third book in the Scary Mary series as Long Dead. Well, there was a reason for that, and in a recent edit, that reason got cut out. I am now flailing about for a new title and can't think of one. I sort of like the title Broken Whispers, but that's more because I used to call all the ghosts whispers in the very early drafts of Scary Mary and that would seem like a nice tip of the hat to that old concept, but I'm not sure if anything in the story really denotes whispers unless you squint. Broken Screams seems melodramatic, but would sort of fit better. I could go with Broken Shadows, which would give everyone an idea what the next book is about, but I don't like the idea of using the word shadow in another title. The whole reason I'm bringing this up is because I've placed a publishing schedule page here on the blog, and I couldn't bring myself to list the third book as Long Dead since I know for a fact that won't be the title. What will it be? I don't know. Maybe I should move away from the word broken. I'll keep brainstorming as I write and hopefully come up with something in the near future. I'll have to have something by July at the very least. Can't publish a book without a title. Well, that's it for now. Thanks for stopping by!
