I already use a pen-name. However, I am contemplating expanding my writing repertoire to include M/M genre and possibly YA.
I have a dark, gritty (gee, shocking, right?) hot and steamy Sci-fi story peculating in me brain. It will include elements of M/F/M and M/M action.
Now, you may wonder why I would choose to use a different pen-name for M/M erotic romance fiction. What the heck is wrong with KB Cutter? Nothing, actually. Its more of a cover for me. Not many of my friends and family or professional colleagues know I write erotic romance. They know of KB Cutter, the horror dude, but not the erotic romance writer.
I know all they have to do is do a Google search and Wham-Bam they can see my hot and steamy words.
This is the 21st century and there should be no stigma to what I choose to write. Maybe I'm taking the easy route so I don't have to go through the hassle of explaining the why's and what's of my stories.
For now, sadly, it may be the best course of action. Additional pen names create more work for me. Multiple Twitter/FaceBook accounts. Blogs/websites. It's manageable, but time consuming. Precious time I need to devote to writing.
BUT, its kinda cool to slip into another persona and be somebody completely different in online social media outlets.
As long as I don't turn into Sybil, that is................
