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].”
I got a chuckle too! 🙂 I had imagined one should use one’s real name in a query since, if the ms sold, one would need a real SSN to be paid.
