    I just found out there is a book with the exact title of the book I am working on. I have published three Chapters on HP already. Please help me come up with an alternate title....HELP ME PLEASE!....

    The title was inspired by the story. I am stuck with coming up with something new....Again...HELP!!!


    The story is called - In The Name of Justice

    If you have a story based on the other story, but have the same title?, one has to ask...did you not think before you wrote yours?

    Without knowing more about the story, then I don't think anyone can help. Giving just the title doesn't actually help. Especially, without more information.

      Hi Cagsil,

      My story is not based on the other story. I did do some research but came up empty. It is a coincidence.

      My story is based on a Jamaican university student who was killed on his way home from school. His sister, a trainee officer searches for the killer(s).

      Here are the links:-

        How about Jamaican Justice?  Or, Justice in Jamaica, or Search For Justice in Jamaica, or Searching For Jamaican Justice....personally I like the first two. big_smile  But it's really up to you what to title your story.  Maybe something will come to you while you're writing.

          Hi Rafini, thanks for the suggestions.

          I like Jamaican Justice and Search for Justice. I am not sure about using the 'Jamaica' in the title. I am leaning toward Search For Justice.

          Thanks again.

    I can only think of 'A Sister's Justice.'

    Actually, I have seen lots of books with the same title. You can't really copyright it.

      Are you saying that the title doesn't matter so long as the story is different?

        Yes. I just did a quick search on Amazon. Type in Afternoon Delight in books and you get at least 6 with the same title smile
