And a HUGE thank you for all the super fantastic title ideas. I love 'em! I know the font size is different on some titles GAH! I've had so much trouble with this post. I gave up. PHOOEY ON YOU BLOGGER.


  1. Hi Robyn! What a fabulous picture! Looks like an awesome time! And you have an excellent list of titles! What a great idea to solicit help from everyone.

    Hope you're having a great summer! I haven't seen you around much and have wondered how things were going! :-)

  2. I really like #2, but your last sentence in this post made me laugh and that's worth commenting on as well. :) I can't count how many times I've said the same thing!

  3. Well, I must vote for #3. Hah!

    Awesome picture!

    Have a great week!

  4. Yay for another J2TW post!!! Last week to enter!
    I vote for #3

  5. I like a lot of them, but the one I really liked was Searching for Fancy. :) Cool idea, chica! And I love the picture!

  6. My vote is for #8, The Horse Ring. I'd pick that up for sure. :)

  7. I'm glad you had fun at Sliding Rock. It looks great! And, I'm glad you got so many good entries for your book. I tried to come up with one but couldn't. I hate my own titles, so it doesn't surprise me that I hated the ones I came up for your book too! I'd vote for title #7. I love the feel it gives. And, I think it matches the title of your first book too.

  8. I connect with two if you want more of a light-hearted, romantic touch, eleven if you want a deeper, suspenseful touch.

    GREAT thoughts, girl. YOU GO!!!

  9. The sliding rock looks uttery AWESOME! What fun!!

    My vote would be
    1. Title No 10 (The Horse Pirates)
    2. Title No 8 (The Horse Ring)
    3. Title No 17 (Snatched)


    P.S. Sending (((hugs))) to you and Christopher!

    My votes are for 15 and 23, but I might have to come back and read the summary for the story again so I can see what title suits it best.

  12. First off, where is that picture. It looks awesome.

    I think I like 13 and 16

  13. Great title choices! My favorite is definitely #11, followed closely by #10. :-)

    My vote is for: 10. "The Horse Pirates"

    I'm a new Putting Pen to Paper 'stalker' and wanted to jump in here with my title vote.

    4.) "Gone In A Gallop"

    Sliding Rock looks alot like a place on Caney Fork River (TN) where I use to take my kids. Wonderful lifelong memories are being made there. :)
