Are pen names important in helping to sell a book?
How many authors reading this blog use a different pen name based on the genre they write? Some might want a pseudonym for their sweet romances and a different name for the erotic romance with the sexy scenes. Do readers remember a catchy name and look for it the second time they check out books at a certain site?
What type of pen name does an author choose? Is it simple or complicated? In my opinion, an author should select a pseudonym that is catchy and hopefully when you see it you won’t soon forget it.
I use my pen name for everything that I write whether it’s sweet or an erotic romance. I feel anyone not wanting to read the erotic work I produce can skip over it and head for the sweet romance category that I write.
I don’t believe I could switch back and forth between pen names. To me, it’s too hard to establish recognition with just one name and keep a following looking for the books with your pen name on the cover.
These are questions for authors. How did you choose your pen name? Does it have to be exotic or plain and simple?
And this question is for readers. Do you select a book solely on the cover and title, or does the pen name play a part in your selection?
