Good Luck Thongs, Booty Calls and Other Bad Ideas

I know I’m engaging in hardcore procrastination when I start thinking up book titles and story ideas just to amuse myself—ideas that I know will never fly, that are completely weird or goofy or off the wall or just plain wacked.

Yesterday my editor asked me to send her a list of potential titles for the book I just turned in. She’ll then take the title list to a meeting with the senior editor, and they’ll come up with the best title for the book. When I’m asked for a title list, I’m always tempted to throw in one of my joke titles just to give them a good laugh, but I’m afraid no one will get the joke but me, and so, with nothing else to do with them, today I’ll share a few of my favorite wacko story ideas and titles. Feel free to use them yourself if you want to ensure yourself a flat and immediate rejection:

A Booty Call to Remember (This one’s kind of self-explanatory)

A Long Time Coming: Book 1 in the 24 Hour Orgasm Series

I Want Your Sex (Also self-explanatory)

The Wrong Hole (I’m envisioning this as an ongoing Blaze series title, kind of like how Temptation had The Wrong Bed…)

The Good Luck Thong: Four friends take turns wearing a pair of thong panties that magically brings them luck in the bedroom

Hi Jamie, you and Cindy are such a riot. :-) I think think *think* I'm going to Reno and I can't wait to meet all the poor, unsuspecting writers whose websites I read every night (as though I'll get published through osmosis...). I will probably cry and make a complete dork of myself, but hey, at least you guys will feel like movie stars for a few seconds! :-)

When I first glanced at the new blog page, I thought that was a list of titles you were actually considering and it nearly scared me away from Blaze, because the 24-hr orgasm series is definitely over the top. LOL :-)

Hi Melissa! Oh gosh nooooo--I'd never seriously consider those titles, LOL. 24 Hour Orgasm Series...can you imagine? Ha!

It would be great to meet you in Reno! I hope you can make it, and I know you'll be at National signing your own books sooner than you think.

you are funny, but, um, I am not sure I would want to wear a thong, never mind how magical it is, if it's been up someone ele's butt, and three other butts at that...I am thinking it is on the funny side I suppose. gale
