I am still poking along with final edits on Scales, aka my Great Unnamed Fantasy Duology. I am, oh, 60% through what'll be my second-to-last editing pass. The last pass will be to see if I added any mistakes on my second-to-last pass, because I'm still doing fairly significant revisions. Mostly taking out words. I've chopped out about 12,000 on this pass, a few thousand by deleting whole scenes, and the majority by rephrasing things more concisely and trimming unnecessary descriptions and such. A few words here, a few there, it adds up. I am long-winded, y'all. You knew that.

Anyway, I am still indecisive over book titles, so I am going to use my time-honored resolution method of LET'S DO A POLL.

Also debating whether or not I want to go to the trouble of serializing it, so I'll throw that in here.

Also, by "which title do you like?" I mean "which title would you be most likely to remember/look at the blurb for if you saw it?" Not being familiar with the story is no impediment to voting. :) If you don't have an account to vote in the poll, feel free to leave a comment, they're open to anonymous.

I like Warlock's Redemption 2: Dragon's Legacy

and I like serials, and if you put the complete book up for sale during the serial I'd buy it right away.

I can't figure out how to comment on the main post, but I can reply here, so hope that works. I like Silver Scales/Golde Birthright, but anything with Scales in the title of the first book is likely to draw me in.

I really dislike the options "1: Warlock: Redemption 2: Dragon: Legacy" and "1: Warlock: Redemption 2: Dragon: Rebirth" because they look like they belong to two different series, "Warlock" and "Dragon".

Me three.

Oh, drat, Just noticed. I don't like "A Dragon's Scales/A Dragon's Birthright" but if you drop the "A" then they're both much better.

But I really much prefer Silver Scales/Golden BIrthright.

How long is the series gonna be, because you don't want to tie yourself to a precious metals theme and end up like "Osmium Officer", "Bismuth Balladeer" or whatnot.
