Think, Create, Win!

      54 Comments on Think, Create, Win!

I need the help of my readers. You know the books, you know the story, you know the characters and that makes you the perfect experts to help me with this task! I have been trying to do this alone for a while now, and I have not succeeded. I am drawing a complete blank on this and need some inspiration from you, my readers! I am even willing to throw in a signed print edition of any one of the five current books to the person that comes up with the winning entry.

I need what is known as a “tagline” or a “slogan.” That is a catchy, and short, phrase that describes the series and draws people in. Some examples of taglines that you are likely familiar with are:

  • Disney Land: The happiest place on Earth
  • Campbell Soup: Mmm Mmm Good
  • Google: Don’t be evil
  • Wal-Mart: Save Money. Live Better.
  • Nike: Just Do It

Those big companies use those lines because they work. We see this in the book world too for example:

  •  Lord of the Rings: One ring to rule them all
  • Divergent: Once choice can transform you
  • The Princess Bride: Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure

So Facebook me, email me, comment on this post below, snail mail me, or even use a carrier pigeon! Whatever it takes, come up with an awesome tagline and then let me know! After you have sent your best one in (heck, send them all), make sure to spread the word about this contest, and the series. Thanks!!

    Thanks you two! Great start! Lets keep them coming in a brainstorm kind of fashion. Someone else where mentioned…

    “In a universe of magic and science, a new kind of hero will rise”

    its a bit longer than I was thinking, but tossing it here to see what y’all think.

  4. Kristi (Vincent's Wife)

    I like “Lost Tales of Power: Unlock the key to a magical universe.” and “Lost Tales of Power: A magical ride through time and space.”

    I guess I should add an idea to the mix though: Lost Tales of Power: Where magic and technology mete!

    And yes, I mean “mete” instead of meet.

  11. Vincent Post author

    Thanks all!

    These are great.. but still don’t quite have that punch of “One ring to rule them all”

    Keep them coming. Brainstorming will feed each of us with ideas.

    1. Vincent Post author

      Heroes of the multiverse reminds me of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 🙂 But I think its going in the right direction.

  12. Ken Davidson

    Lost Tales of Power: New space-time heroes.

    Lost Tales of Power: Magical space-time heroes.

    (space-time or space & time)

    Never tried anything like this before and trying to think and watch the Olympics at the same time.

  13. Ken Davidson

    Sorry, I did not mean it the way it came across. I was thinking more of the length of time from the beginning of the first book to where we ended in time in Sac’a’rith. I see what you mean now that you brought it up. I’ll try to think along a different line if I can get this old brain working right. 🙂

  14. Vincent Post author

    Well Ken, I think you definitely win the prize for being the most dedicated and persistent! Love it!

    1. Ken Davidson

      Just a little payback for the hours of enjoyment all your work has given me. There were times while reading your books that I would get so connected with the story line that I was living the adventure.

      1. Loey

        Lost Tales of Power – Can our heroes save the realm of magic?

        Lost Tales of Power – Spells, magic & jump space, oh my! (Just kidding with that one).

        Lost Tales of Power – An unlikely group of heroes join together to save the multiverse.

        Lost Tales of Power – Each novel leaves you yearning for more!

        Lost Tales of Power – Can magic win against evil?

        Lost Tales of Power – Can the mysteries of the multiverse be solved in time?

        Lost Tales of Power – Will our heroes be able to destroy the dark powers & save the multiverse?

        Lost Tales of Power – Masters of the multiverse.

        Lost Tales of Power – Escape to a multiverse of full of magic.

        Lost Tales of Power – You will be carried away from your everyday life into a realm of magic.

        1. Ken Davidson

          That is what is needed, if everyone would ad a list like you just did Vicent may find one that flips his trigger or someone may combine and get another idea that works. Thanks.

  21. Ken Davidson

    You have enough readers I think that more people should be able to contribute to this contest. There has to be a lot of creative minds out there, even some of your fellow authors.

    1. Vincent Post author

      Only a very small number of readers actually find their way here. I am not sure why that is yet. Maybe I need more pictures of kittens?

      1. Ken Davidson

        Kittens might be good, everyone likes kittens. Or should anyway. Maybe you could mention your blog in the beginning of your next book as a place for your readers to express ideas. Just a thought. I see Loey came up with several more suggestions.

          1. Ken Davidson

            Make sure they are protected by a force field as they might be so cute people would grab the books so fast they might get hurt. 🙂

          2. Loey

            Make sure they’re grumpy cats – you’ll save $ on the force field!

            Lost Tales of Power: Will grumpy cats save the multiverse?

          3. Ken Davidson

            I like the grumpy cats. May as well have a cat fight, get people’s attention. (Not talking about females fighting, that would get me in hot water with my wife.)

          4. Ken Davidson

            Haven’t given up yet.

            Lost Tales of Power: As you read it, you become a part of the adventure.

            Lost Tales of Power: The more you read, you and the adventure become entwined.
            (one, as one, intertwined)

  22. Ken Davidson

    Lost Tales of Power: Dare to read and live the magical adventure of the Cosmos.

    Lost Tales of Power: Let your mind be your gateway to the Universe.

  23. Ken Davidson

    Just watched Cosmos on Fox network. Was very interesting, a lot of information I was unaware of. If you missed the show you can catch it on The National Geographic channel Monday night.

    1. Vincent Post author

      Ah cool. Thanks for the heads up, but we do not have TV. It is to big of a time sync for someone with the schedule I keep. We do catch some shows on Netflix or Amazon, but I doubt Cosmos is up there yet.
