Last time I had a writer sim, I took the random name it gave me and replaced one of the words with "Duck".

My author specializes in Comic Books, based on my old City of Heroes character Whitestar.  He is up to Whitestar #17 so far, and pulling in over $6000 a week in royalties.

I had something weird happen with my author.  He went out to get the mail.  In it was a copy of the book he written and one from the book club.  When I looked at the name of the book I had to do a double take as part of the title was also the author's name. 
What made it weird was it was a book written by Indigo (I wish I had written the title down) and I recognized the title and author as a sim I had created in another game.  So my sim gets in the mail a book from another of my own created sim, which was written in another game.   
Don't know if it happens often but first time for me.

In my current game my teen started writing instead of an after school job, so I just added Jimmy Sprocket to the random title it gave me and pretended my teen sim was writing Jimmy Sprocket fanfic to start off his career. I've also used random title generators I've found elsewhere on the web when I get a repeat title.

- "My Best Friend's A Toddler"
- "Immortal Dynasties and You: Introduction"
- "Immortal Dynasties and You: Traits for Founders"
- "Martial Arts and Toddlers"

My YA sim has written:
-The Life of a Teenage Girl (first book, fiction, I guess a chick lit)
-Holy Cats, I'm in Space!
And a few others that I can't remember right now.
My child sim got the Illustrious Author LTW, and she's on her first book right now, a sci-fi called Galactic Girl: Book 1.

 Whenever I write books, I'll get distracted by something and completely forget the genre. So I just wing the names and hope it matches the genre. Once, my writer did a entire horror series on random kitchen utensils. The first on was 'Knife' and the second one was 'Fork' and soon on. He wrote six books and it brought in loads of money.
"Whoa, Ok Whoa. No one said nothing about extortion or blackmail ok. Just a simple beautiful Christmas star that if you bought from me right now at a hefty price of $140 would ensure that I don't destroy your house or threaten your family."

I had a writer Sim who looked a lot like the actor Steve Busemi, so I named all his books after films that Steve Buscemi has been in!

Another idea is to look up novels online. If your sim writes mysteries, you can look up Agatha Christie. She was a great mystery writer. You can look up anything. For childrens books, Instead of "The Cat in the Hat," you could say "The Sim in the Hat," LOL The list is endless. You can even use real titles if you want. For sports books I usually go from where the default title goes or use something from RL like "How to Win the Super Bowl" LOL
