FenCon Was Delightful, As Always

I was driving home last Monday, so didn’t get a post made. Sorry about that. The rest of the week was recouping and preparing for a speech contest that didn’t happen, but that’s another story…

The most important thing about FenCon, of course, was the debut of The Nearly Notorious Nun. I had ordered 20 copies, and came home with nine, I think. That includes one trade and one to a beta-reader, but still, not too shabby.

It was also the first outing for my newest doll:



Meet Ella Grey. She is a prominent figure in the book. 🙂

So, now that Book Two is done, and several people are beta-reading Book Three, it is time to begin Book Four. I know I had said we’d have The Atrocious Automaton Army next, but I think that I will postpone that a bit. Why? Because I really want to have fun with a real life historical incident that occurred in November of 1874, The Central Park Menagerie Hoax. There wouldn’t be time for the incidents of Army to occur before November. So, I am going to tell a story that has been hinted at here and there. The story of what happened to Jo’s parents. It should be an interesting adventure for all of us. 😉

But there is one problem…I haven’t been able to think of a really great title for this one. Which of the choices below do you like better? Or add one of your own. Be advised that I am TRYING, at least for now, to avoid using the same initial letter again, so M, N, I, and A words are out. There is also a pattern to the way the titles are constructed Adverb, Adjective, Noun. So, if you want to propose your own title, it must fit those parameters.

I can’t figure out a good way to do a poll…anyone have a favored plugin that will add a poll to a post?

Here are the choices (leave a comment with your favorite)

  1. The Really Remarkable Reunion
  2. The Peculiar Prodigal Parents
  3. The Fairly Fractured Family
  4. The _____________ ___________________ _________________


Let’s dialog! I really do need your help in this decision.

    I have a big problem. I like all of the choices. But if I just HAD to choose one, it would be #2: The Peculiar Prodigal Parents


  2. I also like No 2 best.

      I am seeing a pattern, and — to be honest — that is my favorite too…and what I have as the working title on NaNoWriMo. 😉


  3. In the one poll that I’ve done so far on my blog, I’ve used the in-built polling tool that WordPress provides. It seemed to work well for me, but then, I didn’t have thousands (or even hundreds) of responses.

    As to titles, I really like: The Fairly Fractured Family
