In Which I Have a Title Problem

Look! It's a book! It's a book with a rough cover and a name that, rather unfortunately, doesn't work at all.

The Choose Your Own Adventure sci-fi romance novella allows the reader to make the choices for California native Izzy Santiago when she sees a mysterious light over the desert. Will she go investigate? Will she call the police? If she does investigate, will she help the men she finds?

It's a CYOA novella so anything could happen, including dying horribly, because that's always my favorite part of choosing your own adventure. However... the name... it might be copyrighted. Even if it isn't, Amazon has several other identical titles. So I need your help.

What titles can you think of that involve Twentynine Palms, California, the desert, stars, spaceships, and don't sound like the titles for porn movies? There might be a Happily Ever After in it for you, but only if you make the right choices.


  1. Well, not sure about these but the best title was taken by a soap opera so....

    To Follow Her Heart
    The Light Beyond
    The Sands of Mystery
    From Desert to Space
    Star Dreams

    Sorry, don't know anything about Twentynine Palms to be able to include it into a title. But those are the first titles that came to me. I will think about more.

  2. I read this and went immediately to Danielle in Everafter "I could no sooner choose a favorite star from the heavens."

    Not that it helps you with a title... but it is where I went.

    I hope you figure a title out! They can be the easiest or the hardest part of the book. And I can be the worst at coming up with them.

    1. CHOOSE A STAR FROM THE HEAVENS might work, or some variation of that.

  3. Izzy's Star, Santiago Stars - or does that sound too much like a sports team?
