    Help naming a book

    I just spent the last couple of weeks working on my first book (writing not reading). It's about a Charlie Manson like person using people to kill for him. They are killing drug dealers. The story revolves around one of the shooters a 16 yr old girl and her boyfriend. I am near the end of the first draft and realized I have no title. The book is most likely crap but I still want to finish. I need a name to try and publish it on Amazon Kindle's publishing service. Any suggestions? I will try and answer any questions asap.

    Mike, your Manson character's aim is to manipulate others into doing his bidding. How about 'MURDER BY PROXY'(?) Whatever you think of your book you've got to believe in it. Check that your title, whichever you choose from the 'offerings', has not been used before. There's probably a web-site you can go into that will let you know if your title's your own. You might also be asked for a subtitle - even if your main title's on record, this will decide it's your own - so analyse your story for its salient points. A three/four word subtitle might be a clincher, 'The Path of Evil'.
    Think on it, finish the book and take it to Amazon,com for Kindle and/or Paperback. Have fun with the cover!

      Thanks for the advice. A name that has not been used is difficult. Even my own name is a problem. There is already an author by my name and even my full name. I have weeks of work yet to worry about it.

      Just play about with the name. (It'll come to you whilst you're clipping your toenails or whatever). I had to add my middle name to avoid confusion with my namesake, Status Quo's ex-bass player.
