Hey!! What's the story?

Eating Disorder by Jess Waters

They'd poisoned her food. For a while, she thought they were going to kill her. Her teeth were rotting, ribs exposed, so weak she could barely stand. Their teeth were perfect, flat stomachs, empty eyes, laughing from magazine pages. They'd poisoned her.

Then, at the very end, they'd accepted her. They took pictures of her now, put her on billboards. They told her she was pretty and they could edit out the things that weren't. They told her she would be loved. And all she had to do was poison someone else.

Title Advice?

I just completed, as near as I can tell, my first book: a collection stories disguised as a novel. I do currently have a working title that I was initially happy with, BUT it may now be too obscure or inapplicable.

The title as it is now is "The Psalterdemalion." This is a combination of two of my favorite words: Psalter, which is a small book of psalms, and Tatterdemalion, which is a man dressed in multicolored rags and tatters. My thinking was that the man character, a story thief,…

So I've got my stories together for my first collection, and am currently working on the connecting narrative. I haven't even thought yet how I'm gonna get this published. Gotta start thinking what I need to do.

Mark stood on a sea cliff top. A wave below roared in and sprayed out a ferocious impact. Its retreat left a glistening carpet of foamy shale. To his left, a slender figured girl appeared, dressed only in a skimpy black nightie. Her blonde…
