I Finally Have a Tentative Title for Another Wolves’ Heat Book

Can a book title be a spoiler? If you think so, you might want to skip this post, because I mention several. I’ll leave a bit of extra space so you don’t see anything you don’t want to see. :)

I’ve been playing around with this title for nearly six months to be honest and I keep coming back to this one: Gerald’s Lot.

Gerald is a piece of work, for sure, but he has secrets galore and he’s not at all who he appears to be to everyone else. I absolutely LOVE Gerald and I think his story is going to be so much fun to write. You’ll get more hints about him in the upcoming Cam’s Fortune. (I’m still aiming for late August! I’m going to try my best to have it out then but sometimes my ability to gauge the passage of time isn’t so great.) :D

I also have another title I’m leaning toward: Mason’s Regret. (As a reminder, Mason was one of the twins in Ian’s Choice (Ian kicked his butt, lol), and he’s also Matthew’s cousin.) :D He also has a mate—and if you’ve read all the books in the series to date, you’ve met him and you don’t even know it, because this is one pairing that did not work out so well at the end of the previous heat season (Ian’s Choice and Devon’s Gamble).

I’m not 100% committed to these yet, but writing about them here has made me realize just how badly I want to write these stories. :D

For this series, for some reason, I have to have titles first. It and my Hend & Yurt series. The titles give me the motivation to write the story, but I have no idea why.

I’m still stumped on a title for the upcoming New Canton Republic book, but I figure something will eventually come to me! For those books, I’ve never had a title before I was almost done with the story. I will say I really like where this story has gone so far! I just wish I had any idea what to call it so I could post a title for it on the site. :)

I want to also mention the new page here on the site called “Gift.” I’ve put up coupon codes that will get you free copies of the first two stories in the R’H’ani Chronicles. :D I love that little series, and since I’ll be putting out more stories in it soon, I wanted to give anyone who hadn’t read it a chance to try it. The first story really doesn’t do the series justice in my opinion. The world is so much more complex than the first one has the chance to show but the second one does a much better job with that. The third story is one of my personal favorites, but the fourth is a close second. I also happen to adore the fifth and six too! Really, I just love them all. :D I cannot be objective about my stories, sorry. ;)

    New Canton Republic Titles: Hmm, I’ve tried to think of things that connect to your characters, so here are some of my suggestions for titles! Using the pattern of previous novels, Of {…} and {…}:
    Territory (since this is so important to monsters)
    Marking (goes with territory, eh?)
    Half-Breeds (they’re awesome!)
    Mothers, Nests, Guises, (hey, more monster-terms)
    Bonds, Ties, Matches, Fate (generic terms similar to ‘mate’)
    Pheromones, Thoughts/Minds, Chemistry, Shield[s], (related to magic/magic types)
    Ships (having to do with the last novel, if there’s any tie-in to finding more submerged-ship-tech)
    Politics, Republics, Cantons, Conclaves (in case there are human or monster political plot points!)
    Zellis or Zembores (because it’s rather fun to say!)
    I do genuinely hope this helps; I’m so excited to read the next one!

    Oh, hey, thanks so much! That’s a fantastic list. It really gives me something to play with. I admit, I get hung up on stuff sometimes and lose sight of the forest for the trees. :D
