I am a woman with a womanly name. I'm finishing up a science-fiction adventure novel that I'd like to get published. Given the current climate, should I use a male pseudonym? Will it increase my chances?
I don't expect so, but I also don't really have great data here. Genre has in the past been a boy's club but that is decreasingly the case.
Also, I hope like hell your name is actually "Clementine Danger," because holy shit, I'd read any sci-fi adventure book by an author of that name.
