"How do you find exciting names and titles for your poems and stories?" is a question I'm often asked at Writers' Conferences.

Finding Those Exciting Names & Titles Made Easy


Titles and Names can make or break a poem, article or story. 

So how do you think up catchy titles and interesting names? I'll let you in on a secret. This is what I use: Hollywood Classics Title Index That link will take to Amazon Kindle. If you prefer NOOK at Barnes & Noble: Hollywood Classics

For $0.99, this book will provide you not only with hundreds of fascinating titles but names as well. Movie titles are designed to catch attention.

Of course, it's not a good idea to use a recent title, but in this book you'll find thousands of titles, listed with years, going back to 1920. And of course you don't have to use them exactly. You can use them as a springboard. For example, here's a movie, "Paris Does Strange Things (1956)". You could title your work, "New York Does Strange Things" or "Chicago..." or "Montreal", etc., etc.

For names, you can pick a random page in the  movies section of this book and see the names of thousands of actors and the characters they portray. For instance, here's a 1937 movie, "Juggernaut", and an actor called "Morton Selten" and another player named "Gibb McLaughlin". You could transpose these into "Morton McLaughlin" and "Gibb Selten".

I compiled this book not only with movie addicts in mind but myself as a writer. Now you too can share in this bonanza for only 99 cents for the ebook editions. (The print edition, of course, costs more, but it is priced as low as I could make it).
