AUGUST

Start saving your books for this fun and easy challenge!

The concept of the "One Word" Challenge is to release books with a "one word" title. Sound easy? The OW Challenge will begin August 1st and run thru the end of the month. Let's see how many books with a "one word" title we can release!

This idea came to 300dogs while reading Sail by James Patterson. Books with just a one word title will count. No numbers, such as George Orwell's 1984. Books such as Sweetheart and Sandcastles are allowed since they are still just one word. Titles such as Kisser: A Stone Barrington Novel counts as the title is one word before the colon : Got it??

The book titles need to be One Word in YOUR language. They do NOT have to be English.

Wild releases and controlled releases will count the same! Multiple challenges are encouraged.

Let's have fun with this OW challenge!! Start saving books-August will be here before we know it!

You can release without joining ~~~ just release.

I'm in
with a few

 

I'll see what I can come up with.

 

Titles such as Kisser: A Stone Barrington Novel counts as the title is one word before the colon


I'll play but won't use books with subtitles after the colon; they just don't look *anything* like one word titles to me.

Can't tell if there are prizes, but if so, I'm not playing for them.

Thanks for running the Challenge again.

 

"one word" title

THANK YOU for hosting, booklady331...and for allowing ALL TYPES OF RELEASES, as I do have a few...and they will count towards your KTM Challenge, too!!! 😉

Release 1

 

For the first time, in a long time , I don't have enough books for the Dutch monthly challenge. So I looked at the Fora and found this one.
We had a one word title in June but I have just enough left for another month so I like to join this one. After all what is BC without a challenge ;-)

NOTE: Ironically, both these titles are compound words which means they actually have two words in them, But technically, they are both one word.
