Episode 63: Pen Names – Why and Why Not?

Show Notes for Episode 63: Pen Names – Why and Why Not?

How to Write Fiction: When is a pen name or pseudonym in fiction writing a good idea?  Can it be bad for your career?  And how?

There are many good, valid reasons for having a pen name (or several!) and we discuss these.  There are good reasons to not have one either.  So how do you know if it’s right for you?  How do you know if it a pen name will help your sales instead of hurting them?

In this week’s episode, I (host, Rebecca Galardo) discuss the pros and cons of pen names with Holly Lisle, as well as learning from the mistakes she’s made over her almost 35 years in writing.
