Ok guys so I'm back to rethinking my book title...here's a little history.
Since 2004 I've been referring to my WIP as THE SEVEN SISTERS BRANDYWINE or SSB for short. And for years this WAS the perfect title. The premise....
Seven sisters in a small town in Pennsylvania each recieve a magic power on their
I spent two years writing this story-over and over, learning the characters, refining the plot, cutting out plot holes, but it never worked--until...I introduced The Brandywine School for Mage and Knight Studies into the plot.
But once I had this new setting, the focus was less on the sisters and my original title no longer felt right-though I still love it as a title.
So The Seven Sisters soon became Brandywine, and then some other things and then Rose Lily.
I really liked ROSE LILY for awhile, but the title is a bit confusing....and misleading and non-information giving...I was going to call book 2 SCATTERED PETALS and book 3 FALLING LEAF...but...
I'm back to the drawing board.
Here's my latest suggestion--I could use opinions from everyone---those of you who have read portions of my WIP will understand where these titles came from, and those who don't your opinion is still really valid because I want to know what your impression would be if you found a YA fantasy by this title.
For any of my new readers (hi new readers, welcome and thanks for being here!) and those who have been hanging out with me a while and need a refresher....here's a quick synopsis.
Lilliana Brandywine, the youngest daughter of a famous family of mages is the only person in history not to develop a magic power on her 16th birthday--Magic Revelation Day. Expelled from Mage School, Lilliana accepts a place in the Knight School to continue protecting her sister from pain inducing psychic visions.
She has sworn her soul to the fight against evil, but a magnetic attraction between her and her trainer could undo everything she has worked for. Lilliana fights to regain her power, but soon discovers that if she doesn't find a way to claim her magic, someone else will take it and destroy everything she holds dear.
2 more titles to be decided
P.S. "Bound" and "Stripped" are actual terms from my WIP.
