If I were titling it, I'd go with something like "Heros" or "We Could Be Heros", "A Hero In Time", or given the explicitness of the book, "The Lonely Hero" lol
I really like The Lonely Hero, as it doesn't have the "escape" factor. The time travel could be depicted in the cover illustration to portray that part of it

NOW I am thinking "Heros out of time". Or, given the sex scenes, "Heros and Eros". Or how about "Three-way Hero" - because she goes to three centuries! Srsly.

Well, it's true the title was a bit out of place. My suggestion would be 30th century superhero.

I agree the book title is rather misplaced , I suggest "30th Century: Heroes and Pleasure"

The title does not seem to indicate well what the book is about, in my opinion. I like the first one that has suggested above. :techie-studyinggray:

The word "escape" somewhat depicts negativity. If I would suggest an alternative title, it will be "30th Century: A Journey to the Past" if that would make sense.
I like this suggestion, I also thought the 'A hero in time' suggestion is fitting.

The title might be Jennifer's grief. The shadow of the century.

Nice. I totally agree with this alternate title.

Haha! Well then since just a little bit was in the 30th century it can be "Escaping the 30th Century and then moving on with the rest of the book"
Your comments sound funnier than the book itself. :) The title is obviously misleading and any of the previously suggested titles seem more appealing.

I like this suggestion as it gives you an idea of the possibilities that would be contained within the book. It also gives a sense of curiosity and wanting to know what is going on currently and why we are going on this journey. If I were to see this title on a book, it would draw me in to look at it. :D

I found the title misleading as there was more of a journey than an escape. I suppose "30th Century: Escape" sounds better than "30th Century: Journey" so I'd keep the title as it is until I can come up with something a little more enticing.
