After I found out about the fact that it was YA, I'm not so sure about the Darkness one. Sounds like a reference to suicide or something. I like "Dark Side of the Sun", though.

Okay, so spegs mentioned that it's Young Adult, primarily romance...so I'd go with "Nothing Like The Sun", personally. :nod.
Oh, and spegs...CONGRATS AND GOOD LUCK! *crosses fingers*
It won't be long before your pride and joy finally makes its debut. And when it does, I'll be ready with the cash.;)
ETA: Oops. Just so your new suggestions. I change my vote. "Dark Side of the Sun" it is. :)
Spegs--I think I would pick up ALL THAT'S BEST OF DARK AND BRIGHT first if I were in a book shop...that must be sooo exciting! :clap
It has always been my dream to someday write that "bestselling novel." I actually wrote a lot in HS, and won awards, and I still write poetry occasionally. But I still think of myself as a "writer" :) Since now I am majoring in Primary Elementary Education, and have been working with Prek-ers all semester, maybe I should try to write a children's book. Believe me, they give you lots of ideas...
Call me "wacky", but I kind of like Into that Bright Darkness. Ahhh..I'm sure I'm too late. Good luck, spegs! And if it's any consolation, I have to tell you that I have published friends who have had their book titles changed anyway by the publishing house. So whatever you pick now might not stay anyway, I suppose you just want to lure an editor with the title at this point, right?

Oh, I almost forgot: Shaz, you're wacky!
Maybe I should insist on the title "The FORT is the best site on the web." Then I add a scene where the heroine visits her online buddies and praises the wonders of the FORT. And finds out who wins the Bachelor two hours early. :)
haha "The FORT is the best site on the web" sound good to me!!!
Weeell I'm a young adult- 14- And a big romance fan, but I HATE stories that make me sad or depressed so I dont think I would pick up a book that was titled "Into that Darkness" I actually really like Dark side of the sun. Actually I don't judge a book by its title, I look more for interesting cover pictures (I know I know dont judge a book by its cover...) So if you do choose a darker title, have the cover be more representative of your story. I don't think your book is like this, but I know its going to be a funny, laugh out loud book if its you know neon pink or green or something. Dark stories are all black and scary. Fantasy usually has a picture of something made up. So yeah my vote goes for Dark Side Of the Sun! BTW :clap :clap :clap :clap :clap for Spegs!!!!!!!!
Congrats to spegs - I hope it gets published! :clap
As for a title, I don't know... I like Into that Darkness and Dark and Bright.
Spegs, that is so awesome! Congrats to you and I promise I'll go buy it when (not if) it gets published.
I don't like the term "luck" so I'll wish you good fortune. Yay! :yay
Thank you all so much!
Would you believe that after all that, she decided she liked "Twilight" best? I was really warming up to "Dark Side of the Sun," too.
Out of curiousity, there are so many talented people here, has anyone ever worked with literary agent before?
