Novel, Title Help

The second Sword of the Dragon novel is under way now. I put 3,300-words in on Monday night into early this morning.

My current title idea is "Rise of the Offspring" instead of the original "Offspring"

But I'd like to steer away from the rise of, I've seen it used on a couple other fantasy novels and I don't think it's as catching as my first book's title, "Swords of the Six."

If you have ideas please post them here. I'd love everyone's imput.

Hmmm....I'll keep it in mind and try to think of something. I definately agree that something other than just "Offspring" would be more catchy. Hmmmmm...

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
