Hi guys, I'm in two minds over the title for my new book. It is a fantasy novel about an immortal assassin.

 

Option 1: The Other Side of Blood

 

Option 2: Beyond Blood

 

Please let me know your opinions :)


Desperately looking for advice on my query The Other Side of Blood

 

My published novel on Amazon The Traitor in the Trees

I like the sound of "The Other Side of Blood" better.


Nothing to reciprocate on right now; I'm off in the query trenches.

"The Other Side of Blood" sounds better.

I'll probably have to vote for Option 1 as well.

 

The second is a bit too abstract & short for my mind to really take it in very naturally.

The Other Side of Blood triggers more mystery/curiosity in the reader. It has more of  ring to it. Good luck!

I'm not sure what The Other Side of Blood means, but it's intriguing.

 

Beyond Blood also works for me. Perhaps it's another book in the "Blood" series.

I'll have to go with the second option. Although I don't understand either, the second rolls off the tongue a little better.


Would really appreciate a little feedback on my first 250 words: http://agentquerycon...ya-sci-fantasy/
