It's sad in a way, but a catchy title makes a huge difference, I think. Especially when all you get to see of the book is its spine, wedged in amongst a shelf filled with other book spines.

I like to believe that all my titles are serviceable,
but I do wonder if It Was All Forgotten
will inspire anyone to look at the book itself.

I guess we'll find out next month :)

Along with full details of the, ummm--
is it a competition,
or an exhibition only?

It's a contest, like the recent Puddle for best short story title etc.

Mhm.
I'll wait patiently, then.
But that is my favourite of titles I've chosen
for novels-in-progress,
for reasons I'll explain later,
not wanting to risk disqualification for possibly
prejudicing the judge(s).

Lol, there's no judge - or rather, everyone's a judge. The winners get chosen via anonymous vote on an LJ poll.

Would my reasoning in choosing that title
be admissible evidence, or will it be just a list of titles?
And would it be ill-advised to offer that explanation now?

Here's what we did for the Short Story Title Award earlier this year: http://jongibbs.livejournal.com/82992.html

It'll be pretty much the same thing, but with book titles.

I want to start a book called "Womantis", right after I get around to writing one called "The Blondster".

'Womantis' Would that be one for the RWA (the Womance Witers of Amewica? ;)

It's my unauthorized sequel to the SciFi Channel's "Mansquito".

Oh dear :)

I've heard rumours that they have one called Sharktopus coming soon.
