If you've been around this gig for a while, you've heard the phrase 'kill your darlings'. Personally, I don't like the concept, but I think in this case, I'll allow it.
I love the title Djinnocide. To me, it's perfect. It says what I need it to say about the book - something is killing djinn (basically genocide for genies*). But it's not obvious about it. It's witty, but not overly so - like the idea I chucked early on to call this Djinn and Tonic (doesn't fit the story or I would've used it because I'm just that demented).
But I think I have to kill it**.
It's hard to wrap your brain around if you're not familiar with djinn it's hard to pronounce (djinn = 'gin', btw). Plus, it's not a real word, which makes wrapping the brain around it harder. It's an amalgam of two words and will most likely confuse the hell out of people. (Or already does as the case may be.)
So, I've put up another poll over there. Go pick the alternate title you like best, if you would.
*Hey! Genocide for Genies? Could that be the title? I've been staring at this too long when everything looks like a title.
** And with it, kill a page full of titles for subsequent books in this series - Djinnesis, Djinntuition, Djinnuine... Yeah, I have a few dozen of them. :headdesk:
PS. I tossed The Third Wish as a title because it didn't fit and I decided I didn't like it. Sorry for them what voted for it.
