Not that it is even fucking relevant at this point or that it ever could be, but the time has come for me to finally decide under which name I will publish my (if any) works.
I always knew that I never wanted to publish anything under my real name because I live in a non-English speaking country and I always wished to publish on English and possibly in my native language if there was a demand for them, so I was have been thinking a lot about a pseudonym.
A lot of the great writers do it and did it, so why not me???
It has been on my mind for a very long time that maybe I should be thinking of a great name, something that I personally love but is also a good combination of a first and last name.
So, I chose my favorite first and last name which are – Lucas Hewitt, with a J. in between for my family name that is actually not mine but almost like it is, since I have never been in touch with my father’s side of the family and I don’t feel like I belong to my real last name but that is a rant for another time (potentially…)

chosing a pen name

Lucas J. Hewitt

I think I would like to see that on a cover somewhere someday, and I think I would be satisfied with it. THAT’S the name I want to see on my book, not my regular name.
After this, I am defo changing my twitter to Lucas J. Hewitt., might help with engagement since no one really seems to care about you when your twitter has the same name as your blog *cough*
Anyways, that’s basically it. I didn’t sacrifice anything or bathed in the blood of virgins to think of a great name, I just approached it as if I was naming just another character; I think it did a good job but we will see when my stuff lands on the shelves sometime in the future.
Until next time…
