With my novel, The Copernicus Coercion Book 1 Kathryn K, being prepared for publication, the decision over whether to use GJ Scobie or Garry J Scobie is still up for debate.
Working on-line all day, I often see my name spelt incorrectly with one ’r’, instead of two. Looking at Scotland on Google Maps, I can see a Glen Garry, Loch Garry, River Garry, Garry Bridge, a village called Invergarry, and a beach called Garry on the Isle of Lewis. I’ve even found a street in Glasgow, called Garry.
Maybe I should use Garry on the book cover, just so folk know how it should be spelt? We will see.
