how to market a book by authorhouse blog tips

I read some tips on authorhouse publishing reviews blogs about How to Market Your Book under a Pen Name.

In part 1, they explain the reasons we should not use a PEN NAME when writing a book.

The authorhouse publishing company gives the following reasons for not using a pen name:

1. Don’t use a pen name if you just want to impress editors and readers.
2. Don’t use a pen name if it will tarnish your credibility as an author.
3. Don’t use a pen name if you are worried about criticism or controversy from a reader’s point of view.
4. Don’t use a pen name if you want to hide your REAL name just because you are writing a real person’s story and they might get    offended. Instead change to a fictional character name to avoid complications and retain your real name, instead of using a PEN NAME.
5. Don’t use a pen name if they are cliché.

  2. Good advice.

    The best reason to use a pen name is if you’re writing different books for different audiences. Let’s say you write academic books on particle physics for your work and Regency romance novels for your creative outlet. A pen name would help your audiences know at a glance which book they’ll be interested in. (Silly example, I know, but . . . .)
