Surreal Snow Globes.
You type in something simple in Google and the next thing you're lusting over the most surreal, gorgeous, hideous snow globes. No hideous, is such a wrong word as the work of Walter Martin & Paloma Munoz is disturbingly beautiful. I was only looking for a picture of a snow globe for the blog post announcing the new title of my WIP and the next I'm in full-on lust mode.
Anyhow, this is how the original post should have read, and still does for the most part...
I retitled my WIP YA (welcome to acronymn city), Horrifiques, about a week ago. At first I was sitting with Snow Glass Globe, which I still adore but an Amazon search revealed it was too close to 'Snow Glass, Apples' by Neil Gaiman. I know titles aren't copyrighted and it's not even the same title but horror upon horror you don't want your story compared to Gaiman, it's a lose-lose situation. so I've played with words, swapped them around and finally settled on, Grim Glass Vein. I hope you approve and if you don't - :/) I work better with a title I love.
