A New Name? by Catherine Johnson

This post has been inspired by  Keren David’s blog  about alternative names for her most recent novels, This is Not A Love Story and Salvage //kerendavid.com/ten-alternative-titles-for-tinals-and-salvage/

And as I am terrible at titles I thought I would have a go.

Here’s Caraboo:


1 Girl With Wings

2 Rotten Inside

3 Ladies Love Me

4 A Deal of Blood

5 A Natural Sort of Hankering

6 Save Your Skin

7 We Are All Liars

8 Honest Eyes

9 Unrecognisable Tongue

10 A Wilder Life

And for Sawbones 2 which is being edited right now….

1 Flesh Pulped

2 Human Abbattoir

3 A Grimace or a Look

4 The End of The World

5 Low and Dangerous

6 Tightrope Walkers

7 Trepanning

8 Iron Grey Clouds

9 Influence Machine

10 Dungeons of The Conciergerie

Still can’t find a decent title for that one!.

My WIP however does have a title. For the first time in years I know what this story – if it ever gets finished and then published – will be called. But i’m not telling you yet…

See you next month


The Curious Tale of The Lady Caraboo is published by Random House on July 2nd.

  1. Hi Cathrine,

    LOVE all of those titles! 😀

    At the moment, I’m thinking of changing my title of my new story. I think I’m going to call it ‘Promises’ or ‘The Promise.’ It was called, ‘White Shadow’ but I think it needs a smaller title.
