titles, series, patterns

When naming the books in a series, a certain pattern is useful. It makes them look like they have some kind of relationship to each other.

But not too much of a pattern. Because if you write, "The Red Dragon," "The Blue Unicorn," "The Green Centaur," you have kinda locked yourself in.

So -- naturally I have a series that thinks it's not just "Participle Noun" but "Participle Gold." Even two stories will set a pattern there.
