Title help

As I mentioned the other day I need some help with a title for a historical Pony Express story. I have several suggestions, and ran a similar poll on my Facebook author page, Lillian's Lovefest.

So my question to you is...

Which title would have you one clicking


  1. Personally, I'd go for a shorter, punchier title. The three on offer read more like straplines, tbh. How about something like:

    Dangerous Ride[r/s]
    Running the Storm/s
    Storm Runner/s
    Storm Rider/s
    [Character's Name] Ride
    Ride through Hell

    1. I was worried about the length of the titles, on the cover more than anything. The artwork is beautiful and I'd hate to cover it with words. I shall ponder on these. Ta.

  2. It has me remembering many of the historical westerns that I have read which have one word titles, Rattler (Cap Iversen), Sweetwater (Lisa Henry), Missouri (Christine Wunnike)
    So I would go for Western Run or along those lines (yeah I know its two words but get what I mean)

    1. Just got the washing in.... thought of Territory Riders if this is before statehoods.

  3. Awesome. This has given me something to think about. New poll tomorrow I think :)

  4. Well I missed this poll so I'll go on to the next one...
