Road Trip Wednesday- Comp Titles
So a comp title is a book that is similar to yours but way more famous. It's to help a agent understand where your book would belong on a book shelf.
For my book How To Pwn Noobz a comp title would be Scott Pilgrim Verses the World and Things Not Seen. (Thank you Ms Ortiz for the suggestions... You are in fact a mighty T-Rex)
For my book Penny and Hank, well it's a retelling of the Demeter Persephone Myth--- But if I had to make a comparison it would be a little like The Ghost and The Goth meets The Bullfinch's Mythology.
For my book New York Karma the comp title would be Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist for adults.
And for the book I've never written and never plan to, it's a mix of Twilight with a dash of Harry Potter and a tidbit of The Stand and a whole lot of smutty smut smut and some sex too and the whole thing is about a werewolf questioning his sexuality and the ghost who is trying to convince him he's straight.
