Eight titles in search of a book
After all, if you read a title 'The last husband on the shelf' you might imagine the front cover with a slightly cartoon image of a woman, probably in her late twenties, with the title written in pink script, slightly embossed, with maybe a touch of silver?
Though, if you cut it to 'The Last Husband' that has a hint that it might be a thriller, or even a horror classic - white letters ( again slightly raised) - somehow even more horrific if it's shortened further to-
THE HUSBAND - where you can almost imagine the bi-line 'until death do you part?'
Anyway - here are a few more - if you feel inspired, why not comment on what the genre, characters and even setting you think these ones might be, and who knows, maybe they'll some to life one day?
Mr Montague's bicycle.
Everything I'm not.
The baboon's revenge on the collective unconscious.
The Nightingale floor
The trials of Bunbery Rudge.
A house on a mandarin shore.
