Help me pick a name for my (second) short story collection

You guys did me proud last year. I know you'll do it again.

I am hovering around the finish line for my second short story collection, but I've had a small crisis of faith in the name for the book (again). NewMan and I went for a long bike ride yesterday and as we made our way through the streets of Amsterdam we made this short list.

  • A to Zed: Short Stories Inspired by London
  • London Eyes: Short Stories Inspired by London
  • Keep the Change: Short Stories Inspired by London
  • London, Baby: Short Stories Inspired by London
  • London Loves: Short Stories Inspired by London
  • The Lives of London: Short Stories

Four of these names are titles of stories in the collection, one is a phrase referred to in several of the stories and one is just a title that NewMan liked and I didn't completely dismiss.

It's important I also add that the stories are all different in nature. Some are funny, some are sad, some have happy endings, some don't. Oh, and some are just downright weird. I like weird.

I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments or you can email me at bird AT asthebirdfliesblog DOT com.

I've just sent out preview copies of the stories to my beta readers this week, but I'm always looking for more people to tell me their thoughts. If you'd like to be a beta reader of 2-3 of the stories (or more) let me know!
