OH YES! … It’s The BRAINY Book Title Generator!

I want you to be honest.

Go on. You can tell your Auntie Tara. Were you too embarrassed to try the Chick-Lit Book Title Generator?

Was it just too darned demeaning, even in the name of fun, to attach your name to book titles for such an apparently fluffy, commercial genre? The sort you would never write? (If you ever were to write, like?)

Well, fear not! The solution, ladies and gentlemen, is to have yourself a good look at the Braniac Edition of the Book Title Generator.

Wow your friends with the unlimited prowess of the highbrow-sounding book you may never write!

Inspire the Intelligentsia with a novel title which is yards better than anything actually published!

Impress yourself with the sheer depth of unwritten fathomable truths behind your hypothetical work of literary brilliance!

I give you:    The Literary Fiction Book Title Generator.

Brainy Lit-Fic Title Generator TaraSparlingWrites

Here’s mine:

The Indubitable Torchlight Of Tuamgraney    by Tara Sparling      (that’s me)

So what’s YOUR brainy book title? Embrace free speech by leaving a comment!

    ‘The Incandescent Intelligence In Carron Row’? Doesn’t sound like a book I’d like to read, being honest. Though it does sound a bit more SF than LitFic, which (in my mind) is a Good Thing. 🙂

      Not at all, that sounds like a completely impenetrable piece of high litfic to me! Perhaps even one of those ones which wins multiple prizes, because nobody will admit how deeply they don’t understand it. Perhaps because they didn’t want to read it either. But isn’t that the whole point of high litfic?!

        :D!! Couldn’t have said it better myself. 🙂

    Heheh 🙂
    Current name – The Petrified Dowager of Lipson…?
    Alter ego – The Incandescent Devilling of Queen’s Gate :-p

      You need to write that! Doesn’t it just conjure up a pile of amazing ideas? In fact, you have a touch of the the “chick-noir” about that too – strange and nasty goings-on with mother-in-laws, perhaps – that bandwagon is still trundling down the road, don’t let it pass you by!


      • February 14, 2014 at 5:49 pm

        I like the sound of chick-noir! Maybe a short story… lol

    The Flawless Devilling in ME

    (I cheated – I’ve never lived in Maine – shhh!)


    • February 13, 2014 at 3:17 pm

      Now that’s brilliant! Plus, I totally see what you did there 😉


      • February 13, 2014 at 3:26 pm

        Oye, you see devilling as brilliant . . . a sign of the times?

        Lol – have a great day Tara!


        • February 13, 2014 at 3:45 pm

          Thanks Lawrence!
          Your story possibilities with this title are endless, even when devilling is taken for its legal meaning… there could be 3 or 4 books in that alone! You should patent it immediately 🙂


          • February 13, 2014 at 5:07 pm

            You can’t patent titles, as far as I know. I am curious to know more the legal protection of devilling! Titles and story ideas will never be a problem for me. 🙂

    ‘The Merry Eulogies in Balally’.! A tragic comedy of our time…
    I’m on it!


    • February 13, 2014 at 5:03 pm

      I can safely say I want to read that! That said though, I don’t want to write mine 🙂

    The Indefatigable Counterfoil in Donnybrook??? Sounds like a Sherlock Holmes mystery, methinks…. do you think I could get Benedict Cumberbatch for it??


    • February 13, 2014 at 8:58 pm

      I think you should get on to that immediately – but with a title like that he’ll be a shoe-in. For sure!

    The Dominant Question in Apricot(s) – fruit for thought right there!


    • February 13, 2014 at 8:58 pm

      Love it. Fruit for thought. Pun of the day to you my friend 🙂

    “The Concupiscent Torchlight of Whitney.”

    That sounds like a sordid Sidney Sheldon novel. I’ll get to writing it ASAP.

    Thanks for posting this.

      Thank you for commenting Gus – that’s a superb title!

    Petrified Provenance in Broombridge Road.
    Tis good. I can see it winning the Booker actually…..


    • February 14, 2014 at 6:37 pm

      That’s not good, it’s bloody brilliant! A shoe in for a horrifically brainy prize 🙂

    The Solopsistic Mendicants of Athens. I have to lie down now. My head hurts by the sheer brilliance of it 😀

      I’d like to reply to that, but I’m afraid it’s impossible. 75% of my brain cells are intimidated and refusing to come out. It’s a good sign – you should power on with that.

        It is rather intimidating, isn’t it?


        • March 28, 2015 at 6:09 pm

          Yep. It might not be a bestseller at first, but you’ll get all the prizes from the judges too intimidated to admit they don’t understand it…

            Have you read about the student who wrote a nonsensical paper that got published on Nature (I think), just because no one wanted to admit they had no idea what the feck he was on about? This could be my version of that! 😀

              Won’t be the first time, won’t be the last. Although, you’d better practice your straight face.

                PS Lovely use of “feck” there, Nicholas. Great stuff 😉

    The Impossible Transformation of Raymore.
    Sounds interesting, especially considering I love transformation stories.
