Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Let’s be honest: fantasy titles are not always super creative or innovative. It’s why there are so many random fantasy title generators available. Does it mean I love them any less? Heck no. But, it is fun to see how many books titles you can get with the same words. I didn’t even have to look far for this. I just opened my media library, typed in a commonly used fantasy word and *poof* I have so many books already available.
Here are my picks for five of the most frequently used words in fantasy:
<< Royalty >>
We really do love royalty, don’t we? Kings and queens, princes and princesses, they are everywhere. And I’m not gonna lie, I love me some books about royalty, so chances are if a title has one of these words in them, I’m very likely to pick them up. Case in point:
<< Dark >>
Add a touch of menace to your book title, and make it sound a lot more… well… dark.
<< Blood >>
Just like ‘dark’, nothing adds menace to a book title as much as a little bit of ‘blood’. Seriously, what is up with the word ‘blood’ in titles? None of these are even vampire books…
<< Shadow >>
Shadows are great. They are almost always around, they protect you from the sun AND they look great in a book title.
<< Storm >>
If all else fails, use the word ‘storm’ to predict that a lot is going to go down in this book. You have been prepared.
