I finished writing a cyborg science fiction romance novella earlier this week. By finished, I mean the first draft is complete. I still have about a month’s worth of revisions, editing, and proofreading to do. I am planning to publish mid-September or early October. (To be notified of its release, sign up for my author newsletter).
Here’s the first cut, unofficial blurb:
The Terran’s president’s rebellious daughter Penelope Isabella Aaron had been a pain in Brock Mann’s you-know-what going back a decade when he’d been assigned to protect her. Much has changed in ten years: “PIA” as he code-named her, has grown up, become an ambassador about to attend her first Alliance of Planets summit conference, and Brock, well, he was transformed into a cyborg after a near-fatal attack. Now a secret agent with Cyber-Operations, a covert paramilitary organization, Brock gets called in, not when the going gets tough, but when the going becomes impossible. So when he’s tagged to escort Penelope to the summit meeting, he balks at babysitting a prissy ambassador. But after a terrorist bombing, a crash landing on a hostile planet, and a growing attraction to his protectee, Operation: PIA redefines impossible.
Help me title this book!
I picture the cover with a buff macho guy on it, similar to my paranormal romance Longing, only with a “space” background. Initially, I was going to call my Cyborg Operation: PIA (A Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance). The parenthetical part would not be printed on the cover, but would appear in the Amazon listing.
Now I’m leaning toward Cyborg Protector (A Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance).
What do you think? Any other suggestions? I want to emphasize the hero and want a title with a hook to entice readers to take a closer look.
