Have any of you thought of using one when you get published?
I guess there are some pretty good reasons to use one.
*You don't want your mother to know you write erotica romance.
*You write in two different genres.
*Your name isn't different enough to stand out.
*You've hated the name your parents gave you ever since you were born.
*You'd rather keep a secret identity if you go all famous like Stephenie Meyer.
*You like making up new names. We make up characters all the time, right?
*You've had your heart set on naming a child your favorite name, but your hubby won't agree with you. So, why not use it as a pen name instead? ;)
He he. I know some of those are a little out there, but oh well. I've thought about using a pen name instead of my real name a few times. I've decided not to do it though. I'd like to be published with my real name, since it's pretty different. If I decide to write women's fiction or something else down the road, I may do a pen name if I've already published in YA. I have no CLUE what I would choose though.
Have you guys thought of pen names for yourselves? Or will you use your real name? Do tell! :)
