      Bookbub did a post on the most popular words in title, broken down by genre: What are the Most Popular Title Trends in Your Genre?

      I write a lot of science fiction, and here are a few titles I came up with using their results:

      Dark Star
      Shadow Daughter
      Dead Alien Moon
      Citygate
      Tomorrow’s State of Mind
      Galactic Sea
      The Stone Plague

      … um, now the bunnies are bouncing. :P

        Interesting :). Just make sure the titles aren’t in use though.

          Warchild? Claus? I don’t even know what Prador means, or Panglor for that matter. Maybe I’m misreading due to low resolution, because those really don’t seem that common.

          Earth Breakers Heretic (that one guy who doesn’t like earthbreaking… Someone build a gallows!)

          Eden Crusades (instead of worrying about taking the Holy Land, we’ll go straight to Eden)

          Warchild Filth (even warchildren need diaper changes)

          Iron Chaos Tactics (the war-winning methods of an otherwise insane military leader)

          😆

            Titles aren’t protected by copyright, so I’m not worried. :P

            I’m afraid to look at the other genres in fear of spawning yet more bunnies…

              Oh, it’s not a copyright issue but a searchable one. If a popular one exists with your title, your readers might get confused.

                The last time I made an SEO search for my free book it brought up an identical title.

                  Ok I’ve decided to switch genres and write the next hit romance novel, titled Billionaire Cowboy Love at Christmas 😆

                  That actually sounds totally beyond me, so sticking with fantasy, how about Fantasy Time Chronicles: Magic Blood Dragon
                  I think that hits all of the big words nicely!
                  :P

                    If you could somehow switch to Cowgirl you could well get a best seller with that title.
