Fun With Chapter Titles: Jill Edition

As I type this, Jill is in the editing stage and should be published soon.  Chapter titles help me to focus when I write, it keeps me from going off in various directions not consistent with the story line.  I love to have fun with these and some give my readers clues as to what's coming up.  It also gives a reader a sort of bookmark to follow if later in the book they want to refer back to something I wrote earlier. Jade was written from the point of view of Jade, Jane was written from Jane's point of view.  Jill rotates point of view between the three main characters in the Three J'amigos series, Jade, Jane, and Jill.  Here are a few of my favorites from Jill.

Chapter Two: Trolling In The Deep (Jill)
There are trolls in this one and Jill is in a deep down pile of trouble.

Chapter Three: Should I Stay or Should I Go? (Jane)
That commercial drives me crazy and since it fits, I just couldn't resist.

Chapter Five: Sixteen Tons (Jill)
The number one song on the day I was born.  This chapter is about debt.

Chapter Fifteen: I'll be Home for Christmas (Jane)
It's just that time of year.

Chapter Sixteen: No, Not in Kansas (Jade)
My favorite chapter and an introduction of a bit of science fiction to go with all the paranormal fantasy stuff. This one was a lot of fun to write.

Chapter Seventeen: Climb Every Mountain (Jill)
There is a lot of climbing in this book, so much so that I'm tempted to put it in a climbing sub-genre.

Chapter Eighteen: Clan of the Cave Bugs (Jane)
Too funny!  Here there be bugs and they aren't nice ones.

Chapter Nineteen: Queen of the Hill (Jade)
Non-stop action, humor, and fun!

Chapter Twenty-One: Bat out of Hell (Jane)
My favorite chapter (OK, I have several favorites). As with many of my chapter titles, double and some times triple meanings.

Chapter Twenty-Three: A Faerie Godmother (Jill)
This one is a great lead in to my young adult series, Norma Jean's School of Witchery.

I'm looking at a December release.  If you haven't started the series yet, it's a lot of fun.  Here are the links to the first book in the series, Jade.
