And the (Title) Winner Is...

For a few months now I've had a file on my computer named 'ExtraNormal Title Ideas'. It's a Word document that looks like this:

ExtraNormal (ExtraNormal #1)
Lame Idea (ExtraNormal #2)
Another Lame Idea (ExtraNormal #3)

ExtraNormal (ExtraNormal #1)
Lamer Idea (ExtraNormal #2)
Another Lamer Idea (ExtraNormal #3)

Every week or so I would open the file and play with the list: adding, changing and subtracting. Eventually it filled a couple of pages. One lame idea after another, with nothing exactly right. Sometimes I'd even announce to my family that I'd picked a title. I'd say it proudly, and then watch them chew on their food and stare at me like disinterested cows. (Not that they look like cows. I happen to have very beautiful children. Just that the suggested title was apparently a big snore.)

But I am happy to announce that I've finally picked a couple of winners! They fit perfectly and I love them. Even the fam gave me thumbs up. So if you hate them please don't tell. I couldn't bear to open that file again.

And long last...books number two and three in the ExtraNormal series are as follows:

Extinction Order (ExtraNormal #2) AND Exhiled (ExtraNormal #3)

Woot! Woot! Doing virtual backflips here! And now I must get back to Extinction Order! It won't write itself you know!


  1. Oh I love them. Doing back flips with you. Ah, can't wait for #2!!

  2. Congrats! Finding the right title is so exciting!!!

  3. Thanks ladies - it is great when it clicks!
