    Anonymity

    I'm not trying to write a book here on WN, but here is another question that I would like feedback on.

    What are my chances of publishing my book and staying anonymous? Can an author choose to use a pseudonym to write under and reveal his or her true identity only to the publishing house, agent, editor etc, but not the general public?

    Curious,
    Ryan from Australia

    Yes. Query under your real name. Raise the nom de plume issue after you land an agent.

    In most cases, a writer reaches for a pseudonym as part of the "romance" of writing, & not for any good reason whatever. Writing under an assumed name simply militates against the creator's ability to self-market as effectively. I'd recommend that you (anyone, actually) look carefully at this before even asking about it -- but, as has been stated, first get your manuscript sold.
