Great! Is it about a type of fairy that looks like a damselfly when it flutters by?

Doesn't sound like my kind of thing, but not a bad title.

I like it. It makes me think magic and/or medieval times.

I like it for a fantasy! :)
"When life hands you a lemon, say "Oh yeah, I like lemons. What else you got?"
-Henry Rollins

Realizing the plight of a writer: a) it's a lonely endeavor b) it wreaks of redundancy c) it is both satisfying and heartbreaking d) it's an exercise in futility. But when someone laughs or my words evoke a strong reaction on a page, it is all worthwhile.

Thanks! It's a futuristic retelling of Thumbelina.

I wondered if it would be that tale. I liked the premise and everything you said before. I think it'd be perfect for her. (before you wanted to call it Tiny Lina?)

Very nice. And way better than Super-Micro Nanolina, like you were going to use.

LOL. I don't know, "Super-Micro Nanolina" has a nice ring to it. ;) You're right though, "Tiny Lina" was really lame. :blush:

I think Damsel-fly might be a bit better 'cause otherwise my eyes kept going to DamSELFly and tripping over how you wanted it pronounced.

Nothing new to say title works really well. Especially for a retelling of Thumbelina.

If you're going to e-pub this, I'd be interested in doing the cover. Damselfly is a great title. Very evocative.

A really great title. 9 of 10.

I don't think it's limited to fantasy. It's one of those titles that crosses genres.

Chick lit - Damselfly
Horror - Damselfly
Space Opera - Damselfly (okay, maybe a little Serenity derivative)

WIP - Black Sea. It's not about the Black Sea.

I'm certainly considering e-pubbing this, but I have to finish it first. :) I've started working on a cover, but, while I am a digital artist, I'm not an illustrator. So I'd definitely be interested in hearing your ideas once I'm finished (portfolio, what you charge, all that good stuff). Thanks for the interest! It's very motivating. :)
