So…normally, titles are not a problem for me. Heck, I even title my chapters, and people complement me on the amusing or intriguing chapter names.
But I cannot for the life of me come up with a title for this current book.
For the last 25 years, I’ve assumed it was going to be called: The Corruption Campaign. But it doesn’t have anything to do with that…I started the story at a different place. So that one is out.
The Dreames Whose Dreams Come True — too long and not the right mood
Creator Visions — too short
The Makers of Worlds – a bit dull
Saving the World in Silver Shoes — funny not the right mood

I'm trying to get a title that both sums up this book and fits with what is to come. I have a whole list of things that fit one way or the other, but nothing that matches the mood I want.
As I said above, the shortness has to do with the flow of other titles I have planned, rather than with the title itself.
Creator Visions really fits the book better than nearly anythign else (since that is what it is about) but my editor didn't like it when we talked about it as a substitute for my first choice for the series title, so he probably would not like it for a book title either.
All kind of close, but not quite.
I need something like We Are The Creators Of Worlds or The Birth of the Creators.
or Of Marvels and Unicorns.
The Unicorn, the Archmage, and the Yeti? The Ghost, the Raven, and the Runelord? The Gods, the Yeshue, and the Sons of Darkness?
