Geoffrey Long: the brand.

Wow, I absolutely pwn a Google search for Geoffrey Long. Almost the entire first two pages are me. This makes me feel better about one particular aspect of my future professional path: the rising popularity of another writer, Jeff Long, who actually writes the same kind of stuff that I do! His novel The Descent is especially up my alley. I've been wondering about what would happen if a would-be reader walked into a bookstore, walked to the L's , and then saw books by Jeff Long and Geoffrey Long right next to each other. At first I was concerned that they'd get us confused, but the more I think about it the more I think that it'll be fine as long I don't start publishing as Geoff Long or he starts publishing as Jeffrey Long. What do you guys think?


I think you're worrying too much about this. It might be a little bit of a problem for people who have only heard of you by word of mouth (and so haven't seen your name written down), but "Geoff" is very different visually than "Jeff" (same with "Geoffrey" and "Jeffrey"). Even though they sound the same, they read very different.
