For my sake, I wrote under various names that I thought would suit a genre, this lead P.A. Canella to write Science Fiction www.draft2digital.com/book/32517 / Lana Pawcel to write erotica www.draft2digital.com/book/32521/ Al Place was the name I wrote crime stories under www.draft2digital.com/book/32330 . In the beginning I used my name Alan Place for general stories www.draft2digital.com/book/142886 I returned to using my name recently for ease on Amazon, not that it made a difference as sales never picked up which is why my books are only for sale on Draft2Digital.
As a note to end on, as my only success story is the Forgestriker series hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/700-sales.html#.WNJxZpCLTrc , I decided to return to using my pen name of P.A. Canella.
