Over the last twelve days, I’ve been participating in WordPress’s Blogging 201 course (no, I did not grab the badge – I don’t know why). It’s been an absolute blast, and it’s also what prompted the recent design changes you may (or, if you’re like me and real observant, you may not) have noticed. Today is Day Twelve, and today’s assignment is to create a poll or survey to gather more in-depth feedback about what readers like and dislike about my blog.
I’ve been toying with the idea of adding a poll recently, anyway, so the timing of this seems like a great big hint to go ahead and do it. If you’re a regular reader here, you’ll know that I’m revising my fantasy novel, The Lokana Chronicles, for the bazillionth time. You’d think that, having written two-thirds of the series, I’d have settled on individual titles for the books, but you’d be wrong. I haven’t. Everything I come up with is crap.
So! Today’s poll is to pick the least crappy title of the ones that I’ve already brainstormed. If, however, you’re not a regular reader here, you’re probably wondering what in the world The Lokana Chronicles is all about. So, here’s the blurb, which I haven’t updated since I split the first book into two (and my duet became a trio):
When Lokana’s corrupt king and queen are murdered by a rogue priest, their son, Vegin, has two choices: plunge the kingdom into civil war or let his parents’ murderer go free. In an effort to distance himself from his father’s image, idealistic Vegin shows his murderous brother-in-law mercy, offering him a chance to help repair their society.
But Balil isn’t interested in collaborating. After Vegin names him High Priest, he works to destroy the monarchy – and the royal family – from within. When an ancient myth unexpectedly aids him in his quest to destroy the royal family, he becomes obsessed.
To save his family and reunite the kingdom, Vegin must defeat Balil, but he’ll need help. And aid in Lokana is nowhere to be found.
Behold, the poll:
If you have a better idea, please enlighten me! All suggestions are welcome! And thanks for participating! 🙂
