Contest: Help me name the next Dulcie book!

So, I think I'm contest crazy. LOL

Here is a new one I haven't done before...

Help me name the next Dulcie book (which is due out in Summer 2o11)

So, the only guidelines I have is that the title needs to be a play on the title of another famous book. For example:

To Kill A Warlock was a play on To Kill A Mockingbird

A Tale of Two Goblins was a play on A Tale of Two Cities

I'll run this contest for the next two weeks--so end date will be June 15th and then I'll pick my 5 favorites out of all the entries and you guys can vote on which one is your favorite.

Oh, and the winner will get a $50 gift certificate to Barnes and Noble or Amazon and a thank you in the acknowledgements section of the new Dulcie book as well as the ability to read the book before it's released!

To enter, please just comment on this blog post and include your proposed title for the next Dulcie book.

OK get those creative juices flowing!!!
