What about the Title?

As I am writing my story, I continue to read as much as I can about self-publishing to try and squeeze every last bit of information I can before I get to those steps. When I hit some piece of advice that I consider valuable, I look at what I am doing to see how my way compares.

One of the recent elements I have read in a few articles, is about the Title and how that can convey the mood of the book. Actually some are saying Title and cover art but I am not at that stage yet.

For my book, I think the title: Wall of Destruction  is good but then again maybe I am biased. So I would like to ask yall, what do you feel when you read that Title?

The latest article I read about this idea is from James Altucher’s The Altucher Confidential blog. In his post “How to Self-Publish a Best Seller: Publishing 3.0” he talks about the title and how he polled for different titles from his Facebook friends to pick the best one.

I will try a slightly different approach. I would like to ask if you think the title: Wall of Destruction, is intriguing enough to look further into?  If a book’s background is the destruction of a civilization because of flooding, would that be something that matches?

Would love to know what you think?
