Wicked Wednesday – Wicked Funny Contest!

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution just released a list of the worst book titles and you can click here to read more of this article!

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the winner was Disney’s COOKING WITH POOH!

This article prompted memories of some old elementary school jokes about book titles. Remember them? Like YELLOW SNOW, by I.P. Daily?

It also prompted me to think about the worse titles I could ever imagine for my novels. Take THE CALLING Vampire series for instance. I’ve had DARKNESS CALLS, DANGER CALLS, TEMPTATION CALLS, DEATH CALLS, DEVOTION CALLS and BLOOD CALLS. In December, there’s FATE CALLS. Next year you’ll be seeing FURY CALLS, ARDOR CALLS and VENGEANCE CALLS.

Okay — so how’s this for a worst title ever in THE CALLING Vampire series — NATURE CALLS. LOL!

Then there’s the Chicas. They’ve done FRIDAY NIGHT and had some SEX after CATCH(ING) THEIR MAN. What’s next?

What’s next is a holiday title contest for you! From now until Sunday at midnight, leave me your ideas for the worst made-up titles ever for one of my books or a real life title from a book you’ve read/seen.


Finally, for all of you in the United States, may you all have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Well, I missed the boat here but had one for you anyway…

    Nuisance Calls…might be a comedy.

    Prank Calls…Same thing (is your blood bank refrigerator running?).

    Avon Calls/Calling…they’ve got a little something to add a little color to that pale complexion.

    Brooding Chicas… (like that year – long ago – when petticoat junction, get smart, and my three sons all had babies during sweeps.)

    Hope you had a good one…gj

  2. I actually considered BITE ME for a title one time! LOL! I am so bad with titles. I don’t think I’ve kept my title for any of the books I’ve written!

  3. Wow — You put a lot of thought into it. And yes, BLOOD CALLS — not one of my favorite titles. The original title was LOVE CALLS, but it needed to be darker.

  4. I am terrible at this. The only thing I could think of was ” Neck’s Calling” and “My Neck’s Bleeding for you” Sorry. I try harder next time. Have a great week-end.

  5. Hmmm, worst boook titles for your books? Well, how about:

    Calling All Vampires
    Shopping Calls
    Calling All Co Ed Vampires
    Calling Long Distance
    Insanity Calls
    Dementia Calls
    Hoot-Nanny Calling
    The Calling of the Small Bladder
    Calling Your Vampire In Law
    I Forgot Who I Was Calling
    The Creditors Called (and they want money)

    That’s about all I can think of this morning without a cup of coffee. I can’t actually think of really bad titles from books I’ve read so I’ll stick with that. LOL
