When is it a smart move to add another pen name?
This question came up for me with the completion of my latest wip a paranormal romance. It’s something outside my norm and I don’t want to confuse readers – all five of them. LOL
My readers are used to getting contemporary romance. When I posed this question to my editor there was mixed answers. One that struck me was readers will forgive genre jumping. The biggest concern for the publisher is they want me to have a website and possibly a blog for this new persona. So the big question is do I have enough time to invest in another alter ego?
I’ve considered changing my name on my m/m, because I feel that should be separate from my m/f books.
What is your take on this subject? As a reader would you be okay with an author switching genres? Would you continue to read the author?
I guess I have a lot to think about while I wait to hear if the story will even be contracted.
