Sorry I'm late on this month's posting. I spent last week with my mom and sister's and I'm moving household this week. UGH! If I ever have to move again, I'm hiring someone else to do it for me.
Anyway, on to my writing topic for this month.
A lot has been said for the use of pen names especially since a teacher was fired because parents found out she wrote erotic romance and they felt she shouldn't be around their children.
Personally, I don't use a pen name, but then again, all my children are grown and I don't need to hide my true identity from anyone. I haven't been persecuted by my town or anyone either, over the fact that I write erotic romance. I can certainly see the give and take of using one even if you don't have children or whatever. I've thought about using a pen name, but now that I have so many books out in my real name, it would be like starting over with a fan base and I'm not sure I want to do that.
What about pen names for different genres? I've heard pro's and con's of that, too. I write everything under one name and I figured hopefully the posting of the genre within the description would make them different enough, the readers who don't like paranormal won't read those and anyone who doesn't like cowboys, won't read those. Of course, who doesn't like cowboys? Mmm...not me! LOL
So there is my take on pen names. Some use them and some don't. What's your thoughts?
Until next month
