    I wrote a few books, and now I'm getting them ready to publish on Amazon, but I'm having trouble finding a name for my next book. I need a name for the series as well as a name for the first book.

    The original title was The Book with No Name: Kaylee and the Book. The story is about a book that acts as a contract with the reader who sells his/her soul for a wish. The reader is subjected to a set of brainwashing as the book controls the reader's dreams, keeping them awake in both the real world and another dimension.
    Book One. Kaylee and the Book: A young girl is temped with a wish she can't resist and a destiny as a queen in hell.
    Book Two. The Scarlet Knight: A young boy finds a book that helps him become the superheroes from his comics while he slowly loses his soul.

    When I get stuck on titles and the names of characters, I use a random name generator. You can find several by Googling! Also, I think that for the first title, the word "book" being used twice is too much. Maybe instead, it could be "Book One: Kaylee and the Wish" and the second could stay the same. Good luck!

      Thank you for your response. I was thinking last night (a new thing for me) I could use the color of her knight making book one The Gold Knight.

      I tried a few of the name generators online, and most of them are just too generic, not catching the essence of the story.

      The Book with No Name
      Book One: The Gold Knight
      Book Two: The Scarlet Knight
      Book Three: The Wondering Stranger (not written yet)

      I did something similar to another series.
      Dealing Justice
      Book One: Alice's War
      Book Two: Alice's War at Home
      Book Three: Wendy's War (written but not edited or published)

      I Published the book this morning under the name The Golden Knight: The Book with No Name Vol. One. This way when Book two is ready I can call it The Scarlet Knight: The Book with No Name Vol. 2 and so on.

    I honestly have a lot of trouble providing titles to my essays or short stories so I usually look up quotes and try to find something that resonates with a particular work. Like for instance, I was writing an essay on gender discrimination in sports and I titled it 'Watching "Birds" Play' - a reference to the demeaning comment passed at Billie Jean King and her subsequent rise as an advocate for equal prize money.
