The title of my novella is Alien Fiction, a short combination of common words. I did not have high hopes of seeing my name pop up in Google. I'll report some highlights from each page.
Page 1 of Google search results: This is one Wikipedia page followed by a bunch of short article written in that annoyingly popular list format. "21 Best Alien Science Fiction Books" is an article I actually explored. It's a terrible list. They include Ringworld by Larry Niven in which the aliens were very much a sideplot but they ignored Niven's Mote in the Eye of God which is all about a fascinating and well fleshed out alien species. They also included Slaughterhouse Five. For reals? The aliens were barely mentioned in that story. I don't think that any specific alien was even given a name.
On Page 2, we get Amazon and Goodreads lists added to these list-oriented articles. One Youtube video along the same lines pops up.
Page 3 brings some articles which are more interesting at least. One article explores whether alien abductions are fact or fiction. We also begin branching into politics with a news-like article about a Latino sort of alien.
Page 4 has a little more of the same. No politics are to be seen, but we have an IMDB article. We also get a TV Trope entry and a Quora question to mix things up.
Page 5 arrives with a Netflix documentary and several reviews of books which are not mine.
Page 6 is mostly trash. It does have a couple of news articles about governments searching for aliens or else covering up the existence of aliens. We've also got Rotten Tomato page for the movie Alien (spoiler: it's a high score).
Page 7 abducts more articles and blog entries.
Page 8 sees Game Informer leaping into this alien mosh pit.
Pages 9 and 10 are more of the same.
At Page 11, we have the dictionary.com definition of the word "alien." I'm betting that webpage doesn't even have the word "fiction."
11 and 12 have a lot more about the movie Alien.
I keep following until Page 20 at which point both I and Google give up. I try running the search again and adding the word "novella" but my book still doesn't show up. I try it a third time adding my pen name -- there it is. Top of the list on Google!
