Need title suggestions for something

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Okay, so I've mentioned that I've written a science fiction book... well, there will be two more... aka a trilogy. The first one is called Library Cat-A-Log. Two and three will have the same characters, just continuing what happens in this one.

So, here's the basics: Danie is a librarian, Milo is her sizable Siamese. She gets a job on the Mars station... (this is set about 60 years from now), brings Milo with her... a whole lot of interesting stuff happens (don't wanna give too much away). I'll just leave it at that Milo becomes a CRUCIAL player in life on the station.

So, I'm trying to come up with a good Series title... so far I have the lame-o Milo on Mars... there are several others that come to mind, but they've been taken (Cats in Space, etc...). I'm at a loss.

Anyone have any ideas? I'm lost... brain doesn't wanna work. Anyone?

Hmm...

Milo Mishaps
Adventures of Milo
Milo's Adventures
Milo, Space Cat

If Milo is the main character and hero, it should include his name, or at least a reference to him being a cat, I would think.

Milo's Chronicals. How about that? (spelling may not be right...it's late )

Or Chronical's of Milo

Milo's Diary
Diary of a Cat

I'll keep thinking. Anyway, good luck! And, is your first book published? Because I would love to read it!

Secret Memoiers of Milo

Oh, now I'm going to think about this all night!

It's up on Lulu.com as of last night, but still set to private (i.e. no one else can order it yet). I ordered two copies, one for proofs for me, and one for my acupuncturist. she's an intern at the Chinese medicine school here and will be graduating on the 22nd... every time I've gone in there, she asks me how the editing is going... so I'm going to give her a copy as a graduation gift. She's been so awesome... I'm gonna miss her!

I still want to do a quick run through edit... I think there's a few things to tidy up before making it public... such as adding the Siamese face to the front cover... I still don't have a good shot... I need a large file, clear, good quality, of a Meezer face looking at the camera... still not having any luck. My back cover copy sucks too.. along with my description on Lulu.

Milo is certainly inspired by some TCS kitties here (okay, inspired by 8-Bit). I posted in the Paws & Reflect section with a link to a PDF of the first chapter... I'll post it here as well: Chapter One

I kinda like The Milo Chronicles... although I could do Meezers in Space but the other cats who will be joining Milo in book two aren't all meezers.

I'll let everyone know when the book 'goes public' on Lulu. I'd like to get an ISBN and everything for it, but it costs some Moula to do that... and Moula is something I don't have much of.

keep 'em comin'

(FYI: Lulu is a Print on Demand 'publisher' but unlike many of the others out there, they are affordable and easy to use...)

Maybe this is a silly suggestion. But could you start a thread asking people to post high quality pictures of their siameses in the angle that you need? And of course asking for the chosen picture's owner's permission to use it. This way it's legal. And maybe a copy of the file book could sort of be the reward/payment for the picture?

Milo and the Martians

Milo's Martian Mischief

A Martian Cat-astrophy

Milo's Martian Mayham

Milo + Mars = Mayham


Can you tell I like the work "Martian"

I already did that... a few folks gave me names of those who have Meezers... so I PM'ed each of them... and they said they'd send me pics, but I haven't seen any yet... There's a new person with a gorgeous Meezer... I'm tempted to ask her if I can use one of her pics...

I like it but some people may not get that Cat-et is Cadet

If you plan on doing more then this trilogy and only this trilogy will be set on Mars then how about Milo's Martian Chronicles.

But after the first book, Milo won't be the only cat... that's my concern... and the focus is more on Danie, although Milo is a major part of it...

In book one, Milo is the only cat (those dog people, you know )... but once certain things happen, other cats are permitted (a rule about limiting the number of pets on the station is lifted) to come from Earth. This is why I'd rather see a more general name, not surrounding Milo as much... yes, I guess I'm being picky...

I should get going... off to the shelter today...
