I got a 63.7% chance. Not bad for a working title.

How did you score?

Anna Claire said...

Mine got a 44% chance. yay. But I typed in The DaVinci Code and got 35.9% soooo...I think it means that my book will sell a few more copies than The DaVinci Code. Am I right?

And yeah Christy, how did yours do?

Christy Raedeke said...

Mine got a 64% chance. Now I'm tempted to test "Curbside Consultation of the Colon."

Tyler said...

What a fun little tool! 45.4% for my title.

You're absolutely right, Anna! That comforts me that I'll be selling 9% higher than the Da Vinci Code. ;)

Eek! Jump received 21.1%.

This is great. I'm testing everything. I'm writing new novels based on this website. I love it. Do novel scores correlate with credit scores? Can you get a better mortgage based on this novel score? Hum.... |:~)

Breaking Rank = 55.4

Oh, man, I could play with this all night!

Jenna said...

For The Surface of the Deep, I got 69%. For The Enigma, I got 35.9%. I don't think it likes mine very much...ah, well. :D Thanks for the link.

Oh, just for fun...I checked Twilight, and it got 59.3%.

So I'm thinking that we should all take this with a grain of salt or two, right?

This is like link to add unicorns and rainbows to our blogs...I could play with it for hours. Just what I needed, another time suck! Thanks Christy!!!

Hardygirl said...

i got 69%--does this presuppose that it's actually published?? I mean, a best seller that isn't even on the market . . . wow!

EVERLASTING got 67.3%! I am kinda attatched to that title, so I hope it stays. Before, it went through a lot of changes. Rowen's Girl, An Ocean From Home, The Australian, Map to Umandu...I'm horrible with titles! Thank goodness for my agent :-)

I have the record-setting low of 11%!

jberk said...

I was thinking about it some more, and my book has basically the exact same construction title-wise as THE DIARY OF A WIMPY KID so I plugged that in & it was 10%! So there, title-machine.

Christy Raedeke said...

That's right, title judger! Stick it!

I'm glad others have become as compulsive about this thing as I have...

Crystal said...

This was fun! My title came in at 63.7%!

Thanks, Christy, for this fun diversion!
