Do I Submit Using My Real Name or My Pen Name?

Dear I’d Sign My Real Name But Then I’d Have to Kill You…

It’s nice to end the week with a chuckle! I’m happy to support your anonymity here. As for using real name versus pen name during submission, it needn’t be an either/or issue. You’ll be doing business with your agent using your real name, so lead with that even as you present both. Sign your query letter as, “[Your Name], writing as [Pen Name].”

Happy writing!
