And the title is . . .?

That's the thing ... I don't know what the title is.  I've been calling my SF novel "Tales of Telenia #1" but that doesn't cut it on the cover of the book, and it's time for me to get that cover going.  I've contacted a designer, and I'm going to have to tell her something when it comes time to put more than just a pretty picture and my name on the cover.  But what?

And as I'm stepping out of my comfort zone to write something totally different, I've been told that despite the fantasy elements, this book is really Science Fiction. 

Who knew?  (Apparently not me!)

Here's a blurb of the story:  When a spatial rift causes Amanda Shelton’s space shuttle to crash land on an unknown planet, she awakens to find herself locked in a cell with a tutor charged with teaching her an alien language. Crown Prince Paxdon is determined to scavenge not only her ship, but any technology he can squeeze from her brain to vanquish his enemies in a neighboring province.  But just who is Amanda’s real adversary; the warriors in the north or the people of Telenia?

And my tagline:
A female astronaut crashes on a strange planet and is threatened by the archaic inhabitants who demand she relinquish her advanced technology.

Any suggestions? 

The person who comes up with the winning title will receive an e copy of my women's fiction anthology THE EDGE AND I.  You can leave your idea in the comments section (but be sure to let me know how I can contact you if you win). Thanks.
