In the Life of a Writer: Another Look at Publishing and Pen Names

It's a lovely weekend, don't you agree? I do hope you're enjoying every moment.

I've got some deadlines today so I'll just share an interesting story of an author.

So, sit back and enjoy this lovely post written by Julie Bosman from The New York Times.

What's it about? In a nutshell, the article talks about an author who received a lot of rejections for her book. But after she decided to use a pen name... Voila! Eureka! She finally sold her book!

You can read her story here:  Book Is Judged by the Name on Its Cover


Have a happy weekend!

I'll see you next post. ;-)

that's really true, using a pen name helps a lot to sell your products.

Yeah, Mhie. So true. That's what Mark Twain and Stephen King did. And they sold a lot! ;-)
