Arrow A Short Title Contest :D

Okay. So, I've written part of a novel, and I'm planning on finishing it after I'm done/partly done with my current project. I'm also considering publishing. The problem is, I have no clue what I should call it. So, I thought, Why not hold a contest? So, here's the plot:

Strawberry has always known her mother was hiding things from her. After all, she worked for the CIA. But the day she disappears, Strawberry hops on a train to D.C to unravel her mother's secrets along with her cat, Max, who can talk.

I should also mention the year. It's roughly 30 years into the future, and the government hides thing from people unless it's extremely important. An asteroid has been orbiting the earth for about a decade, but it posed no serious threat and the public never knew about it.

But it suddenly slams down into China when Strawberry is on the train. Strawberry, Max, another boy, and a handful of survivors make their way to the nation's capital, half because they think there's something there, and part because Strawberry was heading there in the first place. They have to battle giant dust clouds, extreme weather, and hunger as they make their way to D.C.

So, here are the details:

  • The prize will be 10 comments on whatever you want and a bookcover.

Please enter! ^_^

These are my suggestions:

Lemonade (cheesy right?) xD
'Til The World Ends (like the Britney Spears song? XD)


However long it takes them to get there. I.E., if it takes them 3 and a half days to get to DC, you could call it 84 Hours. Or something.

How I Saved The World in __ Hours. XDDD

I suck at this. Dx
Umm...

Smoothie. Or something else fruity.

A Perfect Circle.
In Order to Create the World (we must first destroy it)
TOTAL DESTRUCTION
Strike of Lightning

I dunno. I suck at this. XD

YAAAAAYYYY. 8D

http://www.kidpub.com/book-page-or-c...e-dd-796119701 Comment on dat? XD

As for the cover. Hrrrm. :3
For my new book, Ravenswood. On the cover, perhaps a creepy lookin' insane asylum, a girl/woman with curly blonde hair that looks kinda depressed, a guy with jet black hair and one blue, one silver eyes (the people aren't necessary), and try to incorporate a raven. XD And the name is Mira Willson.

Heehee, yay! xD Thanks!
