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:

  • Privacy
  • 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.
