Book 8 title suggestions
The thread on Compuserve is here. If you want to see why Diana has been talking about octopus imagery in relation to Book 8, I would suggest that you read the thread from the beginning. (The recent part of the discussion starts around message number 310.) It really is pretty entertaining, even hilarious at times.
Please keep in mind that Diana didn't actually ask for our help in coming up with a title for Book 8 -- although she seems perfectly happy to discuss the pros and cons of the titles that various people have suggested. As she noted on Compuserve today,
Oh, titles always show up when they're ready. Sometimes, I have them immediately--like VOYAGER and SCOTTISH PRISONER; I knew those before I'd even seriously started work on the books. Others--like OUTLANDER <g>--didn't come around until after the whole manuscript was done. Most of 'em show up somewhere in the process, though.Anyway, I thought this would be a fun way for the rest of us to keep ourselves entertained while Diana is finishing up the writing of LORD JOHN AND THE SCOTTISH PRISONER over the next few days. After she's done with SCOTTISH PRISONER, she has said that finding a title for Book 8 is the next thing on her agenda.
As I've probably said before, it's like polishing rocks; I throw handsful of promising pebbles into the back of my mind and close the door. Every so often, I pull out a handful and check to see if there's anything shiny in it.
So, keeping in mind that this is all in fun....anybody out there have any title suggestions?
