In which I find that my blog has a greater chance of being a best seller than Twilight

I misread the title of this post at Galley Cat as "Lulu Titlescorer Tests Your Blog's Title;" it was book in the original. But by the time I realized it, I had already plugged in "Charlotte's Library" and gotten my results--"The title Charlotte's Library has a 45.6% chance of being a bestselling title!"

EDITED TO ADD: If one considers "Charlotte's Library" to be figurative, my chances jump to 72.5%!!!!

I am encouraged (Twilight only gets a 36% chance) and happy to speak with publishers at any time.

Test your own blog's title here!


  1. Oooo! This could be fun - imagine all the different kinds of storylines that could be created under that title! Could be anything from scholarly to saucy! I think you should go for it!

  2. Thus cementing the well-known fact that I suck at titling anything - I was unable to get over 26% on any novel titles, and my blog - Fiction, Instead of Lies was only 10%.

    I give up.

  3. The title ComaCalm's Book Reviews has a 20.1% chance of being a bestselling title!

  4. I scored a 26.9 on the title of my blog if the it is figurative, if it is literal the score is only 10.6.
    Retink the title or leave it alone?
    Anyway, that was fun(?)
    Thanks, Charlotte.

  5. Very fun! Book Aunt scored 41% if literal and 69% if figurative. (What will they think of next?)

  6. Thank you all for playing!

    I am now wondering, Kate, if I consider "Book Aunt" to be literal or figurative.

  7. And I ran "Mare's War", Tanita, which I though would have the same success as "Charlotte's Library" but I guess the concretness of Library trumps the abstraction of War. But don't give up--now you Know the Secret! I'm sure "Charlotte's Library" would work well as a title for your mg sci fi.

  8. I would like to thnkx for the efforts you have put in writing this blog. I am hoping the same high-grade blog post from you in the upcoming as well. In fact your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my own blog now. Really the blogging is spreading its wings quickly. Your write up is a good example of it.
