So what would you do? (Don Winslow)

So what would you do? (Don Winslow)

My good friend Don Winslow has a small problem, which we are looking for ideas for. Don is now a national best seller with two movies being made from his books and a third in the works. You can find out more about him on his web site rather than me going through all that here. (

Now, the problem. There is another Don Winslow, who is a writer as well. Only the other Don Winslow writes porn, and not just porn, but some very ... um ... I guess degrading is a good word for it. Don wants to be able to be distinguished from this other fellow. While I'm sure we can all agree that censorship is not an option, or even a good idea, still, it is getting a little tiresome having bookstores cancel a signing because they think Don writes the other stuff, or having people show up to cuss him out at a signing.

So back in January I got him a web site and started posting things on there. I also put out a few articles for him and got some links. But I got to thinking that Don can't be the only one that this has happened too. What about book titles? I know some writers that get really caught up on the title and they don't care how many books are out there with the same one.

So, given this situation, what would you do?
