Terrible Alternative Titles for DUPLICITY

The lovely Fonda Lee (author of the epic-sounding ZEROBOXER) tagged me for this fun blog tour topic, and I'm glad she did, because I've seen it around and I was about to tag myself. The rule is simple: scroll through your manuscript and stop on random place. Whatever you land on becomes one of ten terrible titles.

This would have been so much easier than trying to mash together words that had to do with mirrors and hacking. Here's what I found when I chose the first short sentence on ten random pages:
  1. Eat a Freaking Twinkie
  2. I Don't Like the Word "Pretty"
  3. This Doesn't Look Anything Like Taco Bell
  4. I Believe You Believe It's Real
  5. They Don't Have Cameras on the Roof
  6. No Internet is Really a Bummer
  7. I Didn't Exactly Think This Far Out
  8. Did You Really Kill Your Last Partner
  9. I Am Not Blond
  10. Call Me When You're Sober
Seriously how did I NOT think of #1 before the cover was finalized? Hmm. Will have to cross my fingers for a second printing ...

For more terrible titles, I tag the talented authors below!
Tatum Flynn - The D'Evil Diaries
Lori Goldstein - Becoming Jinn
Alexandra Sirowy - The Creeping
