No Eels Need Apply

Okay, so I still need a new title for The Book Formerly Known As EEL’S REVERENCE. People are telling me they zip past it because they don’t want anything to do with anything with eels in the title.

When corrupt priests, greedy merchants, and local revolutionaries try to use Aunt Libby to enflame one side against another, they all learn that an old woman and a young mermayd make a serious stumbling block to their plans. Libby and Loach race against time, before the sea of the Eel runs red with blood.

Here are some suggestions I’ve gotten elsewhere. If you like any of them, please say in the comments. Feel free to add your own suggestions.

  1. The Priest Who Preyed
  2. Bound In Shallows
  3. The Mermayd War
  4. Faithful Tide
  5. Death in Priest’s Clothing
  6. Anointed in Blood
  7. The Price of a Mermayd’s Soul
  8. A Holocaust of Mermayds

Helllllllllp meeeeeeeee!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Help me name my book!!


I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Hello Marian, sorry to say that I had no idea for the title of your book. I think you have to be more focus so that you can have an interesting title.

      Thanks, Nicholle. I don’t know why this one is giving me so much trouble. Somebody suggested just REVERENCE.
