Author pen name poll – results are in! #indieauthor

I recently ran a poll on twitter to determine whether an author should have different names if they write in different genres.

It was an interesting experiment and I’m very happy the results fit with my plans to publish both fantasy and romance under the same name.

Here is the results poll…

4 people out of 20 prefer an author to have different names when they publish in different genres, whilst 7 people suggest the same name is fine. With 9 out of 20 people happy with either option, I take that as a successful result for using the same name.

So hopefully very soon, Suzanne Rogerson will be an indie author of both fantasy and romance books. I will be back soon with more news.

Thanks very much to those who have voted and commented. If you still want to have your say, please reply to this post. I’d love to know your thoughts.

A quick poll on pen names. Should authors use them?

As an indie author I love the freedom I have to publish what I want, when I want. I’ve been building my platform as a fantasy author since 2015, but when we first went into lockdown in March 2020 I found myself drawn to the more light-hearted escapism of romance. This new direction has been an exciting change and I’m now planning to publish a 7 book romance series.

As I get closer to completing the first book, I’ve begun to wonder what to do about publishing in this new genre. Should I stick with Suzanne Rogerson or come up with a new name so my fantasy readers won’t mistakenly buy my romance?

I would prefer to keep all my writing under the same name, but I’m interested to get some advice from you guys. So, please take part in this twitter poll and comment in the post with your thoughts.

Thanks very much.

Sound effects in audiobooks, what do you think? #twitter #poll

I’m conducting a short poll for all listeners of audiobooks. I’d love to know what people think of the use of sound effects in audiobooks. I mean the odd effect to enhance the audio experience, not full on audio drama with music etc. Even if you are not a big audiobook listener, do you have an opinion on how audiobooks should be produced?

I think it’s an interesting subject to discuss, so please take part in the twitter poll below

And of course leave comments in the post, I want to know what you think. Let’s talk sound effects. Over to you…
