All Kinds of Wrong… (Puzzle & a Contest)
Thursday, February 27th, 2020

UPDATE: The winner is…Laura LeCapelain!

Thanks to everyone who got their copy of Brian!  I’ve been busy since the release, trying to find art for the new series, Montana Bounty Hunter — Something, MT. Still haven’t hit upon the name of the town yet, but it will come. I’m also looking for handsome men to be on the covers. That’s been a chore (Haha!), looking through all the pictures on the photo sites. I do however think I have my first hero’s name: Cage.

He’s a big, burly guy. I don’t know his “story” yet, but that tends to come to me once I have a title and a cover, because then I put it up on my screen and just imagine what sorts of trouble he will face.

I’m not sure about titling just yet. Did you like having their names as the titles? Reaper, Dagger, Cochise, Hook, Wolf, Animal, Quincy, and Brian… Using just their names was so dang easy. Do you want me to continue that or give the titles some word or phrase that serves as the theme of the story, like Fallout or Hunter’s Destiny? Or do you want their name with a word or phrase like Cage’s Destiny (not a title I want, just an example) or the heroine’s name, like Sarah’s Destiny? You tell me because I could use some help deciding. If you leave a comment with your idea, you’ll be entered to win a $10 Amazon gift card! And, if you have an idea for a title… Go for it! I’m in brainstorming mode, so your suggestion might strike an idea for me. Have fun with it!

So, while I was doing searches under “Hot Males”, “Handsome Men”, and “Muscled Torsos”, I came across this picture I couldn’t resist downloading because I know it will make you laugh. It’s all kind of wrong for a romance cover…

    I like the just the name, it tends to lead up to the story keeping you guessing about what kind of trouble he or she can get into just by the look of them.

    Hey Delilah.

    1. I thought this new series was going to take place in Kalispell?

    2. I like the titles with the Hero’s name.

    I look forward to reading whatever you write.

    Since this is an offshoot, I feel like you should follow the name pattern ~ Cage, Gabriel, Ricardo, etc.

    Oh and I finally came up with a town name I really like ~ Dead Cow (or Moose, Elk or Horse) Springs. There could be a whole back story on how originally a cow was found. dead at the springs and the name stuck.

    If they’re still bounty hunters I’d love for you to keep the Name as the Title… it’s really sexy… heck I wish I’d done some of my books that way… 😀

    I love the just names and I think it will fit better with the original series if it stays the same

    4:55 My! He brings to mind the Hulk. And not the nice one.
    I personally like just the names. Short and to the point. And yes, Bounty is kind of a neat town name. Good luck.

    5:25 Puzzles are not my friend. LOL I like names as titles, sometimes the name with something else, like Cage’s Destiny. I think it’s whatever seems to fit the series.

    Names are fine with me, I can connect with the series better. The puzzle was fun.

    LOL! You’re right, Delilah–he did make me laugh! 2:57

    As for titles, I do like the names as titles, but if you’re looking to distinguish them a little from the existing series, you can definitely do two word titles that include the name and a second word OR you could do the heroines’ names?

    Thank you all for helping me to choose to stick to names as the titles! I’m relieved to know you guys like that convention. So, the next MBH will be CAGE. 🙂

    And the winner of the $10 GC, chosen by a random number generator, is…#5 — Laura LeCapelain! Congrats, Laura!
