Suggest My Next Title







You can suggest a title to me here in the comments section.  Please include your email or another way to contact you (Facebook page so I can message you).  I will need to contact you to find out where to mail your free copy.


There are some guidelines.
The first three books were all "Something" Grey so I will favor any titles that are similar.  Also, I will only send a copy to the first person to suggest the title.

I won't be able to keep track of the suggestions left on my Facebook pages.  I've tried.  But, you are more than welcome to come chat with me over there.  If we aren't friends, maybe we should be.


My profile page where we can be friends and chat:  https://www.facebook.com/JCPhelpsAuthor


My fan page is where you just like everything I do and we can chat here, too :  https://www.facebook.com/AuthorJCPhelps



I've truly loved each and every title suggestion I've gotten.  

I do have a title in mind, but that doesn't mean something else might not turn my head.

If I choose YOUR title I will send you a copy of the book when it becomes available.




Book One is Color Me Grey 


Book Two is Shades of Grey 


Book Three is Reflections of Grey


Book Four is Traces of Grey


Book Five is currently Untitled

  3. Pieces of Gray

    PS-- Soooo super excited :)

  4. Thanks Misty! I'm excited too. If I keep getting title suggestions like these I'll have a tough time deciding.

    Believe it or not, Greyscale and Pieces of Grey have given me story ideas. I should have thought of this Suggest My Title a long time ago.

  5. Painted Grey, Grey Goose, Make Me Grey, Grey Stone, Turn My Brown Eyes Grey. . . I'll think of more. :-) I love things like this.

    I like your Sneak Peak! Keep it coming! (I think EOD is Explosive Ordnance Disposal though.)

    Keep going! You can do it!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Karen - Great suggestions! AND you are EXACTLY right about the Disposal part. Believe it or not, I had an argument (little argument) with someone about just that not that long ago and here I go and put the wrong one in anyway! Thanks for catching that. I've changed it in the main manuscript and will be changing it here as soon as I finish this comment. :-D

  7. "Memories of Grey" (but i suppose you'd have to kill her off in the end)

    "No Longer Grey" (sponsored by Nice & Easy hair color products)

    "Shadows of Grey" (goes covert)

    "Black is the New Grey" (spinoff!)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Thanks Mike! Love your suggestions.

    I AM going to kill someone in this book - oh wait, I kill someone in every book.

    Maybe they'd send me free hair color if I titled my book that way - not that I need it yet. *wink* Doesn't hurt to plan for the near future.

    Shadows of Grey is pretty dang cool cuz she's always covert.

    Black is the New Grey brings funny pictures to my mind - Not so sure Mr. Black - in all his buff glory - would submit to the gender change. But it could be for a great scene suggestion. The scene in the movie Total Recall when Arnold violently escapes from the mind altering machine comes to mind.

  9. Not sure what story ideas they may inspire, but I'll throw out the suggestions of Fade to Grey (as a play off fade to black) and When Skies Are Grey or just Skies Are Grey (from the "You are my Sunshine" song - and who knows maybe she perfects piloting or skydiving?)

    With all these suggestions, I think you're going to have to make the series longer! (...and I really hope you do!!)

  10. Ok, these are without reading it, but I was having fun playing with names. LOL. I'm excited to see you're working on another one!

  19. Karen - I love those too. Of those three you mentioned I think A Touch of Grey is my favorite but not necessarily my overall favorite - don't have one of those yet.

    However, A Touch of Grey might just have to become The Touch of Grey - maybe.

    These suggestions are spectacular but this is going to be so hard!

  20. I think once you're finished writing it, it will be easier to pick one. One will fit more than the rest, you know?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yes, having the book completed will give me an entirely new outlook and choosing the title will be much easier. But that doesn't mean I don't want more suggestions. :-) Having someone pop in and give me a suggestion really keeps me motivated to finish!

  30. JC,
    I just finished reading all of your (3) Grey series of books this week-end on my Kindle. I enjoyed the books tremendously and cannot wait for the next. You are a very gifted writer. I have attempted in the past to read action books like yours written by a female. I just could never get past the first 5-10 pages. These books captured my attention from the first page until the last. I might add that in addition to fabulous and great reading. I found it extremely interesting to view the world and situations from the female perspective. Please continue to write and I certainly hope you keep the Gray series going.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thanks for the wonderful comment, Anon. I'm glad you enjoyed the books. I had a great time writing them. I would LOVE to be one of those "repsected" authors, but this series is for fun and I'm so glad it's reaching an audience that was looking for what I was while writing them.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I just finished the 3 books that are out on my nook!! And I love them so much! I can't stop reading them!! They are so great at times I get goose bumps from whats happening!!! I can't wait for more of the series to come out!!! thanks for the great read!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Just a question, If your book "sucks" even though I am sure it wont, is there any possibility you would be willing to post it some where. When I really like a serious, I get really excited for the next one, to the point where that is like the only thing I want to do, read the next book, and this is how I have been feeling for the last month since I finished the first 3 books!!!!! Its a really bad longing, that will not go away!!!

  34. Kitchenlizzard - What a great compliment. I have posted the first chapter here on my blog, somewhere. I do post writing samples from time to time here on my blog. Just keep in mind that they are always without real editing so will be rough.

    If I don't finish the book I won't be posting it anywhere. That would just infuriate me, as a reader. However, I may have a scene coming up on HerBookSelf - a book blog. It's a great blog if you haven't checked it out yet. Here's a link: http://herbookself.blogspot.com/

  40. I just wanted to encourage you in addition to everyone else here...I downloaded the first book for free and I was hooked! I read them all in less then 24 hours...I can't wait to read the 4th book!! The thought of you not continuing when you have enthralled us all with your characters so far is rather disappointing...at least tie it all together is all I can request. As for titles I'm not sure if I can really add to anything that hasn't been already mentioned...they all sound so great! Personally I like "A Hint of Grey" or "Signs of Grey" mainly because Alex is already "Ms. Grey" and with her taking on her new role and following in the footsteps of her Mom now I think that these titles are outstanding if you plan on making Grey the assassin she is. Her leaving a calling card means she is leaving "hints." Just saying it has great potential depending on where you plan on taking the story, series, etc. I can only hope that you plan on more or at least tying up the loose ends. :)

      I love your title suggestions and will most definitely give them some thought as I continue to write the 4th one.

  42. I've only read the first two books so far and love them! I've got the 3rd on my Kindle already but giving my brain a little break for the rest of the day before I start reading it tomorrow.

    I hope you're still planning on the 4th book as I'm enjoying them so much. As I'm posting from England staring out at a very gloomy sky I felt the need to comment and suggest 'A Grey Day' for the next title. No idea if that's in line with how the characters develop in the book but it's all that's in my head at the moment (not helped by the fact that I'm now also listening to Madness - Grey Day!)

    I also just wanted to say that I'm really enjoying reading a book where the female lead isn't waiting to be rescued and although has feelings in the love department isn't rendered completely hopeless by it. It's very refreshing and I'm really looking forward to reading the 3rd book tomorrow :-D

  54. I cannot believe the first book was free. I would never have been introduced to this series had I not been passing time with free ebooks as I awaited Kate 6 by Ilona Andrews. I love these types of female characters. Like others above, I just wrapped the 3 book series up over the past 3 days.

    I love the way you've shaped Alex's character. I love the slow buildup between her and White. I love that you give her a greater purpose outside of just a romantic hook-up. A woman with purpose is exactly what I love to read about. Many kudos to you, and I really hope the series continues.

    I know that you already have a title for your next book (as per your husband's suggestion). But I'll throw this one out there anyway. I've seen the suggestion for Shadows of Grey above, but I was thinking more SHADOWS in GREY given the shady upbringing by her folks. I enjoyed their intentions, but the murkiness of being handled that way borders almost on genetic manipulation after the fact--and, thus, cannot be ignored.

    1. Oooh - genetic manipulation! :-D Now THAT'S an idea. If only I'd been writing scifi! I might have to move to a different genre. All of these comments and suggestions give me so many ideas. Thank you so much for the suggestions and insight. I love it!

  55. I didn't know if you meant to ask for scene suggestions for Alex's books, but here's my suggestion:

    Alex touched on the fact that her mother was always in the background throughout her childhood. Why did her mother insist on Alex being trained from childhood, but take a background role in the actual training steps? Alex's relationship with her mother reminds me of how a child abandoned by a parent interacts differently with that parent than the parent accompanying them at every point of their growing years. The treatment is so unfair to the parent who is there in the thick and thin, but the child is so afraid of the absentee parent once again abandoning them they're willing to allow them lee-way not afforded the present parent.

  57. I think these books are great. I can't wait until the fourth one comes out. I am courious to see what happens between grey and white. I'm also curious to see if you put lacewell in the book as well and to see what happens between the three of them, you could definatly have some drama their. You could call your next book losing touch of grey. and it could be about her not wanting to keep waiting around on white and have her go off mostly on her own as penumbra. just a suggestion. thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Quite insightful! I'm not going to give anything away by telling you this, because I've not completed the 4th book, but I hope to make Penumbra a bigger character. And, to be fair, Grey and Penumbra truly are not the same person. :-)

      Delete
  58. In each of the books, you provided a glimpse of Alex’s vulnerability (not necessarily weak, but of a womanly soft nature) but she always shook it off so as not to reveal that side of her. By no means do I see Alex’s character as someone who is weak; however, I believe a sensitive side of her does exist. I would even venture to say that it is the side that really wants to reveal herself to White instead of being so rigid.
    Your 4th book should continue to put Alex in exciting adventures that demonstrate her resilience, determination, confidence and strength, but also show a shedding of layers, if you will. Don’t get me wrong, I really like the way you have developed her character; however, by revealing the underlying layers of who Alex really is will, in my opinion, give readers like myself, the opportunity to see the true Alex.
    So, what are those characteristics of Alex letting her hair down that can be revealed behind closed doors when she doesn’t have to be the hard-nosed, rigid girl in front of her partners? How does her character feel when she reveals this side? Does she see it as a sign of weakness? Does she think it will interfere with her position and make her lax on the job? How would you have developed her character even further if she if she truly were attracted to a guy on a blind date? Let us see who the real Alex is and like her even more than we do already. Maybe she can reveal this side to Black and he can open up more about who he is to her because after all, Black is fond of Alex and he is also someone Alex trust. She trusts White also, but she is more reserved and timid when it comes to him.
    I don’t know if this makes sense to you or not; however, having said all of that, I think the next book could be called, “The Shedding of Grey,” The Expose’ of Grey,” or “The Rendering of Grey.”

    2. Now this is just what I needed to read. I'm just afraid of showing her softer side as she is. She's not nearly as interesting when she's not Grey - or so we think.

      Maybe a little more drama could be acceptable, but then she'll have to kick our butts after we see the "Softer Side of Grey." ;-)

      Delete
    3. Maybe just enough to let us see her in another light. I want her to continue to kick our butts and be unpredictable. I also note your title. Hmmmm, very nice!!! I like that too!!! :)

    4. I would like to get to see more of Alex's feminine side,I think she needs to show that more. Where is that Girl that at the beginning of book one who said "being a boy was better than being a girl, But being a Woman was better than being a man," or something like that. that's the Alex I want to see.(By the way I loved that line.) In book two at The dinner with her parents, The way she handled the whole dinner set up was great and that double date in book 3, it let us see that she wasn't afraid to show off that woman that she's been hiding inside, since she started at White & Associates.

      She has been in the world of White and Associates for a while know and it's great when she really lets that feminine side show,(not that I don't love the strong tough character that she is.)She is always talking about dancing and getting lost in the music, not being afraid to show of some skin in a sexy clubbing outfit. Maybe through in few adventurous dates into the mix for to have fun along with all that excitement. I hope that we get to see more of her like when she is with Will, she lets herself be feminine, flirty, and have fun. All while still find out if White really is the man for her.

I do hope you write another to complete the storyline, I think after 3 yrs of asking for us to come up with a title for the new GREY|WHITE saga you would have at least a short story for us to read.

  66. I've been reading the series and am only in the second book very close to the end (I would have finished it, but it was 11 am and I hadn't slept yet!) and I'm scared to read all of them because they are so good and I know I'll want more! Everyone says they haven't been fulfilled yet so I hope you have the drive to push through and all your readers will be here to support you. I can tell just from the first to the second book how your writing improved, which delighted me as a reader. The story to me seems seriously unique because she is this bad ass chick, but she doesn't have the bad ass attitude which would keep her in the realm of fiction, instead she is a little socially awkward keeps to herself mostly and doesn't dangle the men around. It's great. There is also a refreshing pace with her and White because instead of it becoming more and more obvious about their feelings for each other and then the reader becoming annoyed, it's instead kept as mysterious and something that changes, Grey is really upfront about her feelings instead of being cheesy like some books. Keep up the good work and I'm glad I found the first book on accident on the nook! :D

  70. I read all 3 books and fell in love with each and every member of the team. I am anxiosly awaiting the next book. I am of course wanting Mr. White and Ms. Grey together. I love their tension. My suggestion if this is the last book is ....Grey Matters as in she finally matters to Mr White

  71. I have read all three books twice now and really enjoyed all of them. Cannot wait for book 4 to come out. I would like to see Grey come out of her shell so to speak around White. As for a title suggestion how about White to Grey, especially if you are planning for them to be together. There relationship could mirror her parents relationship, since she has taken on the Penumbra persona.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Are you committing to a 4th book. I really hope so.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Evolving Grey, Revelation of Grey,
    or Evolutions of Grey....

    I am anxiously anticipating book 4!!! I would love to see Alex and Rick finally together. Maybe through the evolution of their relationship, you could have her reflect on her childhood up to that moment she first laid eyes on him at her home. In her revelation, her feeling for him can no longer be denied and she can finally go to him. Perhaps Colin can die during a mission triggering her not wanting to loose White and he can take over for the Admiral so that they can be the new "it" couple....perhaps have a little sniper of their own. That might end this series, but there is always the possibility of a spin off series with "Generation of Grey" focusing on the offspring.

  76. "Grey Area" living as Ms. Grey and becoming penumbra, it all comes with a price.

  77. What about the price of being grey? A deeper shade of grey

  78. How about "Fade to Grey"? Oh please finish the book and I really hope White and Grey get together, and not Will!!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Hope I'm not too late for this!

    I love the suggestion back in 2010 by one of your fans that wrote: Fades to Grey.

    White Fades to Grey (a play off of the earlier suggestion, where the relationship part of the story becomes closer)
    Once Upon a Grey
    Combat to Grey
    Battle of Grey (this could play off of her missions as well as her relationship with White)
    Hard to be Grey
    Must be Grey
    Struggles of Grey
    How to be Grey
    Maker of Grey (pull in a new character from her past?)
    Operatives of Grey
    Two Can Be Grey
    Must be Grey
    Versions of Grey

  80. How about:
    Into the Grey
    Steal Grey

    ReplyDelete
  81. Feeling Grey
    **which could express some of the confusion she feels about the status of her relationship with White, as well as hint at the growing confidence she feels for her capability to BE Ms. Grey

    Grey Area
    ** not all decisions are black & white: how she should proceed with her feelings for White, how she feels about her responsibility as Penumbra, which of her personas she relates to the most now-a-days, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Please have Alex and Rick get together. Alex finally decided to stop stalling and just let things happen. I hope they realise how right they are for each other and how well they can and do work together, they could be like her parents.
    Discovering Grey or Awakening of Grey (as in finding the balance between Alex, Grey & Penumbra)

  83. *Argent Grey (the tincture)

  84. I wasn't able to read all of the suggestions, too many, but here's mine...Turning Grey. Inspired by my hair :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. I know Traces of Grey just came out and book 5 may be a far away wish for now but after finishing all 4 in 3 days (I re-read the first 3 to refresh my memory of the details) may I suggest Eclipse of Grey or Eclipsed by Grey since that is one of the synonyms for Penumbra which Alex has now wholeheartedly embraced. Thanks for a great read.

    ReplyDelete
  86. For book 5, assuming Alex will return to White & Co, I think Grey All Over might work?

    ReplyDelete
  87. I think the next book title should be dimensions of grey. Not sure if that has been said yet. My email address is angel_hurley55@yahoo.com. My face book is cortney decuir hurley. I love all your books. Cant wait to read more. You are very talented.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I just finished reading the Traces of Gray and I am so looking forward to the next hopefully not long.... I am hoping to see her return to White and White and Associates. I think to finish the series off would be nice to marry her off with White and have a very similar as her parents. It's an awesome book I am not a huge reader and every time I get one of these books I just can't put it down. Looking forward to the next one in the series

    ReplyDelete
  89. Total Eclipse of Grey...it follows the role of her being penumbra :)

    ReplyDelete
  90. I was thinking of a title for book 5 and I came up with the "Revenge For Grey". I chose this because of the way Traces of Grey ended and think that it would be fitting because from the sounds of it she will get some sort of revenge, and we all know who it should be aimed at. I don't want to give away in spoilers, but I never really liked the person who betrayed her and I could see it coming from the first time they met. I can't wait for book 5!!!!

  92. Do you have an idea when the next book will release? I haven't finished book 4 because I want to go right into the next book 5 when I finish it. A couple more suggestions are: Unleashing of Grey, Remembering Grey, & Unforgettable Grey

    ReplyDelete
  93. Here are a couple more. I still like Perils of Grey but these might be good as well: Blushes of Grey, Images of Grey, Boldness of Grey

  95. No More Grey
    Where is Grey
    Back to Grey

  101. Hi how about a title of Return to Grey, I love the first 4 books and waiting for the 5th to come out. hope it's soon.

    ReplyDelete
  102. As Alex really comes into her own, I suggest, "The Capacity Of Grey."

    The Capacity to:
    Let Red Live,
    Learn from her haste at her last job,
    Thrive off of the grid,
    Complete more missions than the associates would give her,
    And importantly, to love.

    I've gotten hooked on series after series over the last several decades written by the rich and famous chart toppers. Not one of those series has me more anxious for the next release than does your Chronicles...series. Thank you!

    1. I like this one! I don't know if *I* have the capacity to let Red live, though. :-D Thank you for your suggestion and your wonderful comment. You made my day!

    2. I agree about Red. I would like to snap his neck like a dry twig. He has become a threat to National Security. He has shown nothing that would indicate that he can be trusted with Penumbra’s identity. Neither the new one nor the old one is safe. That alone could well number his days. What you do in the dark will always come to the light.
      When Alex thought that he only did what he thought was best for the company, and with her insistence that Red be protected from Collin and the admiral, she showed the content of her character, and her high moral principles. You have developed Alex into a fine lady, and extraordinary individual. It would be beneath her to kill him, without a contract.
      I think that Collin would be smart enough that if he did put a contract out on Red, he would give it to another operative, and keep her clear so that her relationship with the company, her new family that are going to miss her, would not be damaged.
      Know that I am cheering you onward. God’s speed…

  103. Just wanted to take a minute to thank all of you who are making suggestions. I haven't had the time to reply to all of you, and I see I missed some of the very early posters for book five. If I find some time I'll come back here to reply to those of you who I missed. I'm not there yet, but I'm moving forward. Hopefully, I'll be back over here trying to find the person who suggested my favorite title before the next century. Nothing is decided yet and if you submitted for number four and it wasn't Traces of Grey, feel free to resubmit your suggestion.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I think the next title could be 'Return To Grey' hope you like it

  105. I jus wanted to update my post but am not able to. I suggested a title on March 17th 2014 and I just wanted to leave my email address. It is: amawhorter03@gmail.com. Sorry for not doimg it to begin with but I completely missed that part. I am anxiously awaiting book five amd cannot wait to see the chosen title.
