Readers, I’m curious to know your thoughts on pen names for authors who write in different genres. The reason I’m asking is because I’m working on a contemporary romantic fiction series that is quite a bit different than what I currently write under a different pen name.
My published books are third-person contemporary romance that I describe as “bright and breezy”. Quirky characters, tropical and glamorous destinations, a touch of humor, sometimes the stories are hot but sometimes not, and no dark or edgy topics.
My new project is first person, erotic and angsty. My characters are flawed, imperfect and not always heroic.
There are many romance authors who write across genres. Some use the same pen name, but others are intentional about creating a separate author identity and branding for each genre.
So, here’s my question for you:
Do you find it helpful or confusing when authors write under multiple pen names?
