River: I see. I don't like the cover much.
Amy: But if River's going to write that book she'd make it useful, yeah?
River: Well I'll certainly try. But we can't read ahead, it's too dangerous.
Amy: I know, but there must be something we can look at.
The Doctor: What, a page of handy hints? Previews, spoiler-free.
Amy: Chapter titles
(The Doctor scans the page of chapter titles - Chapter 9, Calling the Doctor, Chapter 10, The Roman in the Cellar, Chapter 11, Death at Winter Quay.)

I had to chuckle when I heard this bit of dialog from the Doctor Who episode, “The Angels Take Manhattan.” This is exactly how I think of chapter titles - as spoiler-free book teasers.
Here are a couple of chapter titles from my new novel to wet your appetite:
A Midnight Rendezvous
Warlords at Dinner
Burglary by Night
Do they sound intriguing? Do they make you want to find out more?
If so, then they’re doing their job well.
