Name That Book

One of the things that I’ve found about myself is that I have more trouble thinking of a name for my books than I have actually writing them. This is how the other book names came about.

A Rocky Path – this was my first novel and the name wasn’t as hard. Because there is a literal rocky path in this book, but the MCs also were going down a figurative rocky path

Club Blood – Zoe Winters actually picked this one

See Me – a sudden inspiration based on a note that was found by the MC

Starfane – I tried and tried to think up something for this one. I kept trying to figure out something about the MC going through the mural, etc. I kept calling it the Starfane book so I would just have something to call it. Starfane is the world she finds through the mural. So somehow the name just stuck. And it was simple.

Ok, here’s the problem. I’ve tried and tried to come up with a name for my WIP. Very brief synopsis: Female MC sees something she shouldn’t, people are trying to kill her, she doesn’t remember what she saw, father hires a bodyguard, bodyguard is a vampire (she doesn’t know it, but the readers do), he tries to keep her safe but they keep being found, etc.

Anyway, I would love to hear some brainstorming from some of you awesome authors out there. Just any title that comes to mind. I keep trying to incorporate the word “bodyguard” or “protector” into the title, but that’s not set in stone. Come on, I need some help! I don’t want to get this novella written, only to be held up by a title. If I see the right title, I’ll know it almost immediately. So throw some things at me, even if you think they sound silly, and let’s see what we can come up with.
