Book Two Title

I am still fiddling with the second book of N00b's, but hope to have something show for early this year. I've been thinking of calling it "Trinity's Ghost." Anyone out there have thoughts about that? Good? Bad?

  1. Trinity's Ghost is kind of a spoiler name, maybe just Trinity?

    ReplyDelete
  2. What about trintiy's heroes

    ReplyDelete
  3. Trinity's Heroes? Hmm...that's not bad

    ReplyDelete
  4. Seems like too much of a spoiler, as I'm assuming this means TrinIty will die.'
    Maybe Dylan's Revenge?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Don't assume. It could just mean something that's haunting his character...

    ReplyDelete
  6. Personaly I like trinitys heroes too it just seems fitting bc trinitys ghosts makes it seem like she's dead

    ReplyDelete
  7. I think a good title would be "searching for trinity"

    ReplyDelete
  8. i think the Search for trinity would be a good one, but thats just me

    ReplyDelete
  9. I would suggest something that doesn't involve names in it, because that's kind of spoilerish. Maybe something like...The Ghost? Something simple yet relating to the story. Nothing obvious.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think the name should be Government's Mistakes, I agree with the other people, a name shouldn't be in the title.

    ReplyDelete
  11. "Revenge of the noobs", only thing I could think of...sorry...

    ReplyDelete
  12. The n00b traiters

    ReplyDelete
  13. how about
    No Longer nOObs

    ReplyDelete
  14. "The Holy Ghost" maybe as the title or maybe just as a way to describe Trinity in legend (in case she's out there creating a legend for herself)...since you got the whole Trinity-Christianity thing goin

    ReplyDelete
  15. i think it should just be "rebellion"

    ReplyDelete
  16. "Trinity's ghost" works great except that it implies that she's dead. Maybe that's a good thing, because Dylan thinks shes still alive but everyone else thinks he's kidding himself at the end of book 1. Still, if that's not what you want to imply, then use a different choice of words for "ghost"

    ReplyDelete
  17. I just read this book on my kindle got so atached to it and plz hurry up on it i would just name it noob wariers book two to keep it easyer to find and buy

    ReplyDelete
  18. All i know is it needs to hurry up and get published 0.0 Im excited for it, How about Search for Trinity?

    ReplyDelete
  19. no longer noobs seems actually good and the cover just a green army helmet

    ReplyDelete
  20. I CANT WAIT TILL THE NEXT BOOK. i read the first one on my kindle and it was amazing and i cant wait until the next one

    ReplyDelete
  21. How about "The n00bs of rebellion" (book two of the n00b warriors) and no pressure or anything but could tou plz hurry up Im dying of patience for book 2!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. noob warriors book two

    ReplyDelete
  23. Scott Douglas you have the most brilliant ideas! Keep up the good work!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You could try "Trinity's shadow" it wouldnt tell if she was dead or alive. It may be a good way to express the book.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Those reviewers were very criticising. I didnt see ANY flaws with the book. Keep up the great work!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. maybe these..... "Rebellious n00bs" "The vengeance" "The n00bs revenge" "Trinity's torturer's" They aren't great but they're something!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I wonder if Scott Douglas accually reads our posts.... Hmmm...... anymore suggestions for titles? b-cuz I'm almost out. Well, how about "revenges fury" "A reason to fight" "Dylan's fury" "a casting shadow" ok thats all I got for now....

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hey Scott, I was wondering what titles you like and dislike. Its kinda nagging on me to know.

    ReplyDelete
  29. @Truett, I haven't given it too much thought...it probably will be the last thing I do before the book comes out.

    ReplyDelete
  30. You could call it The n00b Warriors: De1337ion
    It would refer to the deletion of the government without being too much of a spoiler, and would keep with the nerdy/gaming title theme.

    ReplyDelete
  31. And btw, loved the book. I'm not sure why the people you sent it to considered it too violent. Sure it was violent in some parts, but they were fairly brief. Perhaps you should send it to the people who publish Stephen King and Tom Clancy books, they're pretty in to violence =)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think it should be called 7r1n17y like trinity

    ReplyDelete
  33. I like the name n0 l0ng3r n00bs.

    ReplyDelete
  34. "The Rebellious Quest" "The coco base"

    ReplyDelete
  35. Lol every message I've sent I've sent it from my kindle. (including this one)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hey Scott? I was wondering if your atleast half way through writing the book.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The first chapter is about half done...I started working on it last week. I've been pretty swamped with other projects, but am spending my summer working on it...

    ReplyDelete
  38. How about "Guerillas in the Midst"

    ReplyDelete
  39. Okay, I know what you mean. Well good luck with the book¡!¡!¡!¡!

    ReplyDelete
  40. could u post a few paragraphs on your blog so we can get a gist on how the second one will start

    ReplyDelete
  41. I wouldnt because it might give away a few pointers and make people MORE desperate for him to finish the book. I think we should stop nagging on him.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Whatever you decide to call it, the title should include the word N00b. This word comes to identify not only your book, but the universe within it. If I were you I'd even go so far as to use the same format as the first title - something like "The N00b Revolution" "The N00b's Ghost" etc.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hey i in joyed the first book, but the title of the next book seems "off" Trinity's Ghost. It doesn't seem to match, but who am i to judge.

    ReplyDelete
  44. n00b Warriors: Hero Rebellion

    ReplyDelete
  45. Trinity's shadow that sounds good as well as me I agree with the 51's post Trinity's Ghost sounds off Its not a big deal I'm just giving my opinion

    ReplyDelete
  46. Suggestions:
    Trinity's Shadow
    The Shadow of Trinity

    Is she really dead???

    ReplyDelete
  47. I really like that title and dont think it really spoils anyhting? its sorta like hes chaseing Trinity's ghost dosent really say weather or not shes alive. but then agian thats just me. Really liked the first book and cant wait for number to!

  48. "Trinity's hero's" would be good to though i think?

    -Brady

    ReplyDelete
  49. How about dylan's search

    ReplyDelete
  50. i think it should be shadows of trinity

    ReplyDelete
  51. I would like the name "who's the n00b now?", but then again I'm not a writer so...
    But seriously, Scott Douglas your book rocks and I want the second one so badddddd :D fast!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Get your own Idea's I came up with the "Trinity's Shadow" and "The Shadow of Trinity"

    ReplyDelete
  53. He's inspired me to start writing!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. when is book 2 comeing!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. hey scott.
    i think trinitys shadow is great because its like dylan is searching for trinity but shes just out of reach.

    but anyway...i dont mind...just make it easy to find on the kindle.

    mabye...trinitys shadow(n00b warriors book 2)

    keep up the good work.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Plz tell when n00b warriors 2 is comming out.


    I CAN'T WAIT!?!

    lol

    ReplyDelete
  57. I can't wait for book 2. How about,

    NoobAgeddon!

    ReplyDelete
  58. mabye searching for trinity?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Id try something like "We are all Alive", "Noob Warriors: Trinity", or maybe even "Trinity's Alive". ether way using some form of Trinity in the title would maybe be a good thing or bad thing. But ether way i know i will be reading this book when it comes out, its one of my favorite books of all time. =)

    ReplyDelete
  60. i think trinitys shadow would be the best title it doesnt give much away and you know its going to be centered around the inner love story not the war.I dont know thats my oppinion but im sure whatever you choose will be good.Cant wait for it to come out.

    ReplyDelete
  61. When is comeing out?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I have an idea!
    How about a cross war between the 'frosties', the 'cocos' and the chimera from the resistance titles but remade to suite the story and have trinty come back. maybe she was wounded, nonmortaly but badly.
    how about that?
    p.s no leapers!
    p.s.s look them up!

    ReplyDelete
  63. N00b rebellion now thats a good one

    ReplyDelete
  64. You have to think is this the last book or are there going to be more

    ReplyDelete
  65. hi im a great fan of the n00b warriors and i really want to know when the next book is coming out. oh yeah and i think "Trinity" itself is a pretty good title already.

    ReplyDelete
  66. How about "She Lives On" or "n00b Rebellion: We Fight On"

    I don't know but great job on the first book!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I just finished reading the first. maybe something that doesn't explain stuff with trinity so it is a surprise for all. Just so it gives suspense without giving it away. you might still want to add her name in the title though if it is mostly about her or involves a lot of her.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I honestly don't have any ideas for a title though.

    ReplyDelete
  75. They should make a movie of this book.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I like
    n00b Warriors: The Third side
    The most out of what I have seen. Just something to think on.

  83. I like the name "Trinity's ghost," it doesn't say that she is dead but it also doesn't suggest that she is alive either. I think it is the perfect name! I like some of the other titles too but this one just sounded to me like a book I would LOVE to read. By the way Scott, I think you are a GREAT writer! I don't say that to many authors only ones who I think deserve it, and you certainly do! I hope you you enjoy writing the book as much as I enjoy reading them! (Alot!)

  84. "Battle Cry", "H0PE", "Cry within the Crossfire", "Personal play", "Trinity's Avenger" "Personal Clash", and "Looming Death". Hey Scott, I was wondering which ones have you most considered? The suggestions I have had (The one I think is actually good) Is "Trinity's Shadow" I was the first to come up with it. So, thanks for reading!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have read the book three times and out of all of these title suggestions I think most fitting is "Trinity's Shadow" And "Trinity's Heroes" Scott, I think you should most consider those. (But that is merely my opinion) Here is the reason why I like "Trinity's Shadow" is because it is not a dead give away or just a spark of hope. The reason I like "Trinity's Heroes" Is because well, its self-explanatory. Here is one of my own titles "Spark of hope". Thanks for reading! Lease reply with your opinion Scott!

      Delete
    2. Anonymous (awesome name, BTW), right now, the title is still Trinity's Ghost on paper, but I haven't ruled out any of these.

    3. Thank you for the input! You have really encouraged me into writing. Thanks for the book that I literally could not put down! :D

  87. What about N00bs 4ever

    ReplyDelete
  88. "Creating a fuss" "Gritting Teeth" "Adrenaline rush" "N00bs going Pr0" "Former n00bs" "Bubbling Bl00d" "Bl00d spill" "Personal Volley" "Knight in shining Armor" BTW guys I suggest not saying titles with stuff like Tr1n1t7 it isn't that attractive for a buyer. It has to be dramatic but still make sense. It should be like mine. (I am not saying that it should be mine on the cover. But its an example) the 00's I added were for the affect of the previous book. If you haven't noticed mine don't have a bunch of random numbers. The random numbers defeat the purpose of n00b warriors. Its gaming speak. Get with it. :P Hope you guys like my suggestions!

  90. Hey Scott, is the next book going to be free? Because the first one was free for a short amount of time; now its $1.99. If it is going to be free how long will it be free? Thanks! ~ Truett

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Good question. I don't know. I said all along that it would be, but things have changed in ePublishing. Everyone is coming out with different policies. Apple will let me sell it free, but Amazon could technically could remove it for charging when it's free elsewhere--BUT I can't match the free price on Amazon without putting it in the "select" program. Putting it in the select program will mean I can't sell it anywhere BUT Amazon! So it's all a giant catch-22 right now. Amazon has gotten real good at using robots to comb the Internet making sure the price of a book is not lower somewhere else.

      I was going to post it on Apple for free for a few days before releasing it elsewhere, but they don't publish books immediately like they used to...it's been taking up to two months for a book to be approved.

      Strangely, it's still free in the UK?

      Don't worry...if it's not free, and you really can't afford .99 or 1.99 or whatever it is (and there's no shame in that--I know a lot of you don't have credit cards or parent permission to use there's), then I'll find a way to get it to you. Apple gives me a very limited amount of promo vouchers that people can use to download it free.

      The book is still months from being complete, so rules and policies can change from now til then. So we'll see...

    2. Thanks for the info! There is just one thing. My kindle is on my moms account, and well she doesn't like me reading stuff like that, so I really don't want to cause a huge fuss. :/ Anyways thanks! Keep up the great work! :D ~ Truett

      Delete
    3. So I'm on your mom's "don't read" list? That makes me feel sort of smutty!

      Delete
    4. No offense inteded! I promise! C'mon she won't even let me read the The Hunger Games! :/ She doesn't even know about The N00b warriors. You are an excellent writer, indeed. She just doesn't like books about killing. (I feel too sheltered!) I just would like another way for it to get to me, if that is not too much trouble for you! Thanks! ~ Truett

      Delete
    5. That can be arranged :-)

      The N00b Warriors isn't about killing though (neither is the Hunger Games)...if anything, it's about not wanting to kill--being forced into uncontrollable situations and making choices no kids should have to make.

      Delete
    6. Well, she doesn't like books about killing overall. I totally understand the difference. Anyways, I am glad you got this incredible idea for a book. I got my cousin to buy it and read it! :D He LOVED it! Thanks for being so arrangable for me! ~ Truett

  94. It could be called Dylan's journey or Dylan's redemption

    ReplyDelete
  95. I love the book! I think that "N00bs of revolution" mentioned earlier iis a brilliant name!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Honestly it's very hard to come up with a fitting title for a book when the content is unknown. I'm pretty sure there are a select few people who know, and I doubt they will tell. A good title encompasses everything about the book, while adding to it and catching the eye of a casual observer (I was a casual observer scrolling through the free section on amazon). n00b warriors is a good title for the first one as the book is about (plotline wise) a couple of kids (n00bs) who get sent off to a war, and it goes through the lives of these "n00bs" as they fight for survival. For the second book though we have an idea, but that idea is only that Dylan will search for Trinity while trying to bring an end to the war. It could just as easily be called "n00b diplomats" as he is striving for the end of war. So essentially I'm saying a truly good title cannot be dredged up when the storyline is not known.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I think it should be called "The Search for Trinity".
    ps: I think Noob Warriors would make an absolutely great movie! :)

    ReplyDelete
  98. I think you should find someone to make the movie, anonymous :)

  104. I think 'Trinity's Ghost' is a very interesting title, but its clear that some don't think putting her name into it isn't a good idea. I agree, so, 'The Spirit of Our Warriors'

  110. Lil the status for this page is to finish book 2 as your new years resolution but its already summer break for most schools and its draft was just finished about a month ago. Not to seem too impacient but when EXACTLY is the second book coming out. I really liked the first one and I am very excited for the next one to come out.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Lol the status for this page says that Scott's new years resolutions is to finish book two but summer break for most schools has already started and the rough draft for this book has only come out about a month ago. Not to seem impacient at all but when EXACTLY is the book coming out. I'm not really knowledgeable in the writing buisness but this page was started LAST YEAR and the book (I estimate) is not exactly at a point in which we all might call close to being published. I ready the previous book in this series and I really liked it so I would like the next book to come out in a reasonable early time.

  112. The year isn't over yet...so we will see.

    The writing business varies, but when you don't really get paid to do it, it's hard to call it a business. I have another job, and book has to take second to that. I wish that wasn't the case, but until someone gives me a big sum of cash and tells me not to worry about money anymore, it's going to be a slow process, so be patient :)

    ReplyDelete
  113. Dylan's heart is not to kill, but is to fight for what he wants; Trinity. It, the title, should be based upon the mindset of the (main) characters.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Hey Scott, I'm writing a book myself, have you got any tips for me? You are the most awesome writer by the way, I <3 you!

    1. Read. And when you get tired of that, read some more! Read books like liquid! And write of course. Don't worry if you are good enough...chances are you aren't--but if you keep writing, then you will be. The only way to write better is to write more. Good luck! Send me a sample of your stuff sometime if you want another eye.

  118. The Search for Trinity reminds me of "Star Trek: The search for spock"
