      Nice.  Simple--yet causes the reader to inquire more.  Thank you!

      Yes, but not very original and most people probably wouldn't even pick up the book. Needs something more.

      I suppose different titles will appeal to different people.  :-)  What a big task to decide on just one!

      @nikashi_designs..... You may want to take a look at Stephen King's titles. Simple yet very successful.

    I like 16. My Revival: The Day I Died.
    But I think just  'The Day I Died' would be good as well.

      Thank you!  Deciding on a title is proving to be almost more difficult than writing the book!  :-)

    I would do a google search for whatever title you choose. I like Afterlife--but don't know what to add afterwards--maybe a keyword from the story. Afterlife-Alive maybe?

    A New Beginning or The rebirth, these tittles seems fitting since death signifies starting a new journey and starting all over again.

    This is an exciting concept to some.  Others give it no thought at all. However, I would expect when that time comes for all of us, we would find ourselves wanting to believe more and more as the final seconds of our lives click away.  I hope that moment will not be the end for me, but be an end of a chapter.  Take it away Mr Seger.

    "One Foot Out of The Grave"
    "Not Again"
    "Life Squared"
    I sort of like "Deaths Doorway"...The Title is something you really have to think about and don't rush it. It will hit you eventually. I think coming up with a name or title is more difficult then actually writing the book. Just a note: Try to stay away from the cliche title, Take care

      Agreed.  Thanks and good advice!  Appreciate it.  :-)

      Some times cliche is great because it IS cliche.

      I love "One Foot Out of the Grave".

  9. Insane Mundane profile image59
    Insane Mundaneposted 6 years ago

    I'd probably give it the title: "The Misconceptions of Death"

      Hmmm...I might have to play around with the word "Interlude"--I like the feel of it.  Thanks!

    "Rebirth"
    "Resurrection"
    "Departure"

    Out of the ones you suggested:
    "9. The Ascent: Life as Seen from the Doorway of Death" is a good option but I think that just "The Ascent" would be a better title.

      Thanks for your input!  I like the word "departure"...maybe that can be worked in somehow.

    In my view, the title for  your Novel  can be named after 'Crying for you after your death?'

    I would go with the simple yet effective title;Passing-On.
    I think this particular title will light up significant associations in your readers' minds and not only personalize their reading but most significantly cause significant synaptic cleft activity which will promote further reading... However, other titles that have been listed are also exceptiionally good. Perhaps when the book is written a clear title will be more easily discerned...

      I haven't thought of that one-thank you!  I value your input so thank you for sharing it.  :-)

    My philosophy with titles has usually been to keep them short. I also like alliteration, so I'm going with "Death's Doorway".

      Seek-n-Findposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I admit--I like alliteration too.  :-)  Thanks!

    The title I like most here is: "The Day After I Died." But it IS the type of title I would use.

    Of course, what you choose should touch you especially. If it doesn't feel right, keep searching, or look at your book from a new perspective until you find it.

    1. Seek-n-Find profile image84
      Seek-n-Findposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I like that one too.  :-)  And yes--I totally agree with what you are saying.  Guess what one of my favorite words is?  Perspective.  I see its one of yours too.  :-)  Best to you!!!

      Oh, yes. So much can be said with that one word. And good fortune deciding your title.
