I'm halfway through the third revision of a steampunk/pirate/romance I've been working on for about two years. It's still untitled. I had a burst of creativity yesterday while finishing up a chapter.
One theme in the book is how the main character evolved from her pampered lifestyle to being able to do things on her own, taking charge, and going outside of the "uppity" women's world of clothing and such. In the book there's a saying that women like that are "peacocks" because they're all looks and no mind.
But I am terrible at titles. They usually fall out of the sky an smack me in the head, but this one's eluding.
I've played with some words, like "Mech Peacock," or "The Peacock and the Mechanic," "Pirates and Peacocks," "Bronze Birds," "Metallic Peacock," "Not Just a Peacock," but none of them feel right.
