I’m a fast writer but not as fast as it may seem over the next few months.
I’ve begun posting links to my work on this site. A lot of that work is under pseudonyms; some public, some not public.
One of my public names, Pádraig Cahill, has caused a problem for the publisher and for me, because, come to find out, some of the on-line retail systems have issues with the a-fada in my given name.
The problem with the letter isn’t apparent in the listings themselves, but in the way search routines handle it. As a result many of these books have been virtually invisible on certain sites unless they were searched for by title or ISBN.
I guess I should have expected this. Even the punctuation in my anglicized surname occasionally proves problematic. However, I thought that commercial information technology systems had moved beyond the point where I needed to worry.
Obviously I was wrong.
The net result of this is that the publisher is going to reissue these books under the Patrick O’Sullivan name. It will take some time to do that, so until then you’ll find some Pádraig Cahill books on this site. It isn’t an ideal solution but at least you’ll be able to find them.
