I’m writing a new series and I’ve been advised I should try to sell it under a new writing name.
I’m not sure about this. I like using my real name. I like seeing my name on a book. I’ve already built up a following on my name. I have a Facebook page!
And yet – I’ve always rather liked the idea of going incognito. I like the idea of being a secret writer, of having a second identity (this is what comes of being addicted to superheroes comics. I’ll be getting a batcave next. I seriously considered using the name Selina Kyle). And it would be a chance to start again, knowing all I know from the first time. And what’s to stop me running the two identities side by side?
But I mourn the loss of me, my name, my identity. It will be like I’m a hidden writer.
Still, whatever helps me to get my work out there will be good.
