I'm working on an epic novel divided into a series - the working title is "The Bible, Part II". It's basically "Left Behind" but with the antichrist as the protagonist who fights back against God's invasions and finds a way to save humanity.
However, while the content will eventually lead to a harsh criticism of faith (in the book, Christianity is a complex breeding system to produce meek and humble slaves for an alien race), I'd rather not show all my cards with such an outlandish title.
Instead I'd like to find a name for the series and a name for the titles that is more ambiguous, but so many names have been taken. Aliens/fallen angels, a breed of superhuman hybrids, a human revolution against a colonizing alien power, mixed with religious history, corrupt church power, vampires (Jesus giving his blood for eternal life of followers, etc.)..... Book 1, 2 and 3 are basically "beginning, middle and end".
Need some kickass names. If you supply it you'll get signed copies of every book of the series when they're out.
It is HARD finding a title that isn't already taken. And everything I came up with that wasn't taken was total cheese. Sorry. . . got nothing.
I do want to say that I loved Jesus Potter Harry Christ, so I'm betting this is going to be a great series. Awesome plot! I can't wait till it comes out!
I don't like a stand-alone prepositional phrase as a title, but it would work great with a noun in front of it. I think a lot of great titles have used that form, like "The___ on the _____" or "The ____ of the ____". The series title is great. I had to look it up, but it has a nice ring to it.
I'll second the vote for the first cover. The second cover says "This is a peaceful, serene book about the apocalypse", but the first cover says "I'm going to be blowing stuff up", which is much better.
Third Testiment <-- I don't know if this has been used or not...
Or word play:
Like the first cover.....most eye catching :)
Just some words that were bouncing around my head:
Manuscript scrolls hoodwinked swindle doom design impact effect twisted script reckoning revelation deeds proclamation
Twisted Revelations…..the final act!!!
Have fun: )
