Branding - or Who The Heck is Daniel Gunn?
G. Daniel Gunn, my name mixed with a faimily name, a way to make the horror style of anything else I wrote stand out. Someone likes Margaret's Ark, they'll look for more books by Daniel G Keohane. Someone likes Destroyer of Worlds, they'll look for more from Mr.Gunn. Now if I can convince the publisher of Christmas Trees & Monkeys to change the name as well...
It's not unique. Other writers have done this in the past (one extremely good dart player who comes to mind is author Michael Marshall Smith, aka Michael Smith, aka Marshall Smith).
Thanks. Let me know what you think....
aka, G :-)
