Is your book title odd? Check these out and vote for the weirdest one

Selecting the right title for your book is important. It draws readers in, helps set the tone for your story, and hints at what’s to come. It can also get the attention of booksellers, agents, and editors.

But what if your title is just plain weird?

Well, for one thing, you might win an award. You can learn more in this Huffington Post article about the Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Title of the Year.

I like weirdness. Who wouldn’t be intrigued by “How Tea Cosies Changed the World,” (I love a nice tea cosy but never realized they’d changed anything more than the temperature of my tea!). And then there’s “God’s Doodle: The Life and Times of the Penis.” (Does it get any better than that for a title?)

Read about the other odd titles and then vote for your favorite.

While you’re at it, maybe you’ll find inspiration for creating your own title.
