Choosing to use a pen name when publishing can be a difficult decision. Make sure you look at the issue from all angles before deciding.
The Career Author Podcast is a podcast where co-authors J. Thorn and Zach Bohannon share their struggles and successes as full-time authors, advice for improving your writing craft, and honest discussions of what it takes to build a successful career as an author.
In this episode, you’ll discover:
The reasons authors use pen names:
- Name too similar to another celebrity
- You’re writing in multiple genres
The reasons authors don’t use pen names:
- No validation or recognition
- Multiple website maintenance
- Multiple personalities on social media
Also, learn how a timer can make you more productive.
