Got feedback on my working titles? Alternate suggestions most welcome!
I've divided my Emissary book into three standalone novels and am starting to compose query letters to literary agents.
I'm trying to telegraph through my titles that my midwestern sci fi adventure story is funny-quirky (think Red Dwarf) yet not funny-absurdist (Hitchhiker's Guide).
Book I: The Emissary and The Time Bomb from Outer Space
(Previously, Door County and the Time Bomb from Outer Space. I removed the Door County because who even knows what is Door County. Seriously. All you fellow Door County residents calm down, now. I grew up in Los Angeles and Pittsburgh. I never even heard of Door County until I was 37.)
Book II: The Emissary Faces Peril and Cheese Curds
or, with a nod to Nancy Drew
The Emissary and the Clue in the Cheese Curds
Book III: The Emissary and Mindful Approaches to Everything Possibly Exploding
(going for a self-help vibe there)
If you want to join my team of beta readers let me know!
Thank you thank you thank you
I still love cats and books. Also, the shield-like properties of boxes.
