Writers Group Name Required
« on: April 09, 2011, 02:13:19 AM »

After a long (and not enjoyable) time with a particular writers' group (thed final straw bing, having set up contacts in Waterstones and several other bookshops to promote the latest anthology, I find the 'chairperson' hasn't even filled in the paperwork to register the ISBN, on the grounds that "We didn't bother registering as we've only got 500 to sell")

So, I am going to be away to set up my own writers' group/circle - but the names I keep coming up with (Redhanded, Murderous Ink, etc) have all been taken via various domain registrations.  As I certainly need to use the web as a promotional tool, there is an obvious need to get a name that's catchy (like the Black Death), easy to remember (like thingy - you know, used to be on around about...)and based on crime/mystery writing as I intend to run on that specialisation.  Sorry, but if I get to hear someone read one more (expletive deleted) story about singing unicorns and talking gingerbread men, I swear I will take a rocket launcher to the Early Learning section of Toys-R-Us.)

Open to suggestions anyone?

Thanks for the comments - now back on line after a Windows SP1 total wipeout (the C000009A death)

I went with Murderous-Ink (so the site is now under construction at - and we're looking to build something on it soon (hosted by 000Webhosts for free, even though I didn't register the domain with them but through Freeparking.)

Now I need to push the thing and get some other likeminded people involved.

(though I have to admit, I'll also be taking the other suggestions and adding them to the Ideas box...)

Many Thanks!
