Hi Ana,

The Speed of Dreams. I'm not sure how it works and what we are meant to add or say about a book title, if anything. But when I read this, I wondered what the book is about and didn't really come up with much. The title doesn't give me an idea of genre, topic, etc. Also, is it fiction or non-fiction? Because it might be both. A title should give you a sense of something. As I know nothing about the book, and in order to bring the title closer to what I would feel brings a question to mind, how about:

Faster than dreams.

My two cents worth ...

I like it. It makes me curious about the story. How does time move differently between the waking and sleeping world? How does the speed work into the plot of a story? What kind of story would rely on the speed of dreams instead of just the content of a dream?

oooh, dream book, Yep I'd pick it up. Just to see what it was really about. Posted Image

For in all the world there is much to be seen, but much more lies in the imagination. Just don't forget to add the dragons. Dragons make everything better.

Anna, I agree with Leonardo here. It could be anything but for me to make me curious I would have to know if is a fantasy, romance, non-fiction. It would loose my interest completly if by any chance was romance (and I write romance). So, it is a bit to safe.

Actually, I quite like this title. Depending on the cover art to go with it, I would be interested in what it was about.

Transylvanian, the story is borderline science fiction. There's a space war and space ships involved but not a lot of technical stuff.

I like that. My thought is fantasy, but I think sci-fi works very well with it too, given the Speed of Light.

WARNING: posts made by Moonshade are dangerously low in Sodium. Therefore, all questions, quandaries, comments, corrections, and curiosities should be taken with a heaping dose grain of salt.

it's sort of a stylish title, but I feel it's a bit all style no substance. There's very little tension in this title, as there would be in the less fluid "The Speed Limit of Dreams" or even "The Slow Speed of Dreams"
