Poll for the title of my book!

Captain’s Log, Supplemental

Blog book giveaway:
My Thursday book giveaway is The Wedding Caper by Janice Thompson.
My Monday book giveaway is Thanks for the Mammogram! AND Reconstructing Natalie, both by Laura Jensen Walker.
You can still enter both giveaways. Just post a comment on the blog posts above. On Thursday, I'll draw the winner for The Wedding Caper and post the title for another book I'm giving away.

Pick my title! The Zondervan Marketing Department is torn about which title would be best for my debut novel.

So you guys get to weigh in!

Here are your choices:

Solo Sushi
Sushi for One
Single Sushi
Solo Sashimi

Leave a comment about which you prefer and WHY. I’ll run this poll for a couple weeks to figure out which will be the title for my new book!

TMI:

Writing: I posted another "Health and the Writer" post at WriterQuotes, and an agent post at my Story Sensei blog.

And in case you missed it, my review of The Guy I’m Not Dating by Trish Perry is posted at the Fab Four Book Picks blog.

Working on my substantive edits. Please pray for me if you get a chance. I’m feeling stressed.

However, I also have hope! Read Rachelle’s post today on her blog and start praying for me!

Diet: I went running yesterday with the dog. It was a good run except that my surgery knee had a few twinges. Not good. So I think I’ll stick with low-impact aerobics with Denise Austin and my Power Yoga programs.

(Oh and Rachelle, I have Taebo, too, but I haven’t tried it since my knee surgery.)

  1. I like "Sushi for One" because it has a nice rhythm to it - it just rolls off the tongue. The others kind of trip up my tongue. :)

    Saying prayers for you.

  2. My vote is for "Sushi for One". It sounds very single chick-ish. I just like it very much. That's my answer. Heh.

    Prayers are being sent your way.

  3. I like Sushi for One too. Could also go with Single Sushi because you've used this as the series title so I think a lot of your friends and fans are familiar with it already.

  4. Hey Friend!
    Praying for you!! You will get there. God is doing a completed work - remember - He doesn't ever leave loose ends. Philippainas 1:6.
    For your title, I prefer Sushi for One. I think it looks good - Solo Sashimi works as well, but I would wonder how many reader would actually know what Sashimi is?
    Most people know what Sushi is I think!
    Anyway, that's my cent and a half for ya!

  5. Had already chosen Sushi for One as my preference - then came here to find out everyone else likes it too! I agree with them - very chick-lit-ish.

  6. I like "Sushi for One" It just appeals to me more and is catchy.

  7. Well, Camy, I'm going to be different.

    I like Solo Sushi. It's catchy, almost humorous in its ring. It trips off the tongue with a smile, almost singing its way out of my mouth.

    Solo Sashimi doesn't make me smile, nor does Sushi For one or Single Sushi. They're Ho Hum in my opinion.
    All the others are dull and boring and common. Solo Sushi is unique.

  8. Camy, I like Sushi for One. The Solos Sashimi makes me go huh? I don't know what Sashimi is.

  9. Well, I like to eat Sashimi, but I figure most people won't know what Sashimi is like Salley said.

    My favorite title is Single Sushi. Then Sushi for One.

    What did your publisher say?

  10. Single Sushi! It's hip and quick off the tongue.

  11. I like Single Sushi best because of the lyrical quality of it..

  12. I'm somewhat hesitant about naming a book--at least when it comes down to voting for it. Of the ones listed, I prefer "Sushi for One" especially since I *don't* know what sashami is though I'm guessing it's another Japanese dish.

    I like the Solo bit and wonder how "Sushi Solo" would work. I guess this comes from turning around suggestions for titles for another book, e.g., "Yours Always" or "Always Yours". One seems to have a better *ring* than the other. I know it could be confused with solo singing but the I'd say "A Sushi Solo".

  13. Sushi for One
    Sounds very chick-lit.

  14. I like these titles the best:

    1st Choice. Sushi for One
    2nd Choice. Solo Sushi

  15. I'm gonna vote for 1) Single Sushi (very catchy, and as some other people mentioned, has a chick lit sound to it) and 2) Sushi for One.

  16. I like Sushi for One. It rolls off the tongue better than the others.

  17. Solo Sushi!!! I can't think of a better title.

  18. Hey Camy, I think 'Solo Sushi' has a great ring to it, very catchy....

    ReplyDelete
  19. I like either "Solo Sushi" or "Single Sushi."

    Going off-track, you could invert the words:

    "Sushi, Solo"

    But that might just confuse things. Here's to God leading you to the perfect title!

  20. Apparently, I'm going to totally rock the boat and say I like "Solo Sashimi" best. I love the way I feel saying it.

    Also, rather than the word "Sashimi" turning me off to the title, I think it adds that litte bit of exotic flavor that makes me feel like I'm going to be in safe hands while you tell me a story about a culture different from the ones I'm familiar with.

    "Solo Sushi" feels really abrupt. I probably wouldn't just pick up a book with that title unless it had something else going for it (like, maybe, I knew the author's name ;-)).

    "Single Sushi" trips me up every single time. I just can't get the words to come out right.

    "Sushi for One" captures the chick-litty kind of feel, but doesn't give me the instant "ooh, what's this now?" reaction that "Solo Sashimi" does.

    But that's my opinion, I'll buy the book no matter what the title is. :-) And I'll keep praying that God leads you to the perfect title for this book.

  21. I like the Solo Sushi, its spanish, it's english, its got double meaning and more. Only susui, or just sushi, or . . .yeh. I like it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I like Solo Sushi personally but Sushi for One has a certain ring to it. So either one would work.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I like Sushi for One. It rolls off the tongue and in my opinion, it says what the book is about. It's short, to the point and not confusing. Solo Sushi and Single Sushi make me think one piece of sushi. And I just don't get Sashimi.

    If I was walking through a store and saw the title Sushi for One, I would be intrigued and inclined to buy it. It's simple and I think it will appeal to more people.

    That's just my thoughts.
