Xerxes Break(Vivian Ephona) (ephona) I want to. If so, it would be the name you see on your screen now; Ephona. With something at the end. Still figuring that out XD

Natasha | 42 comments Most publisher give you the option...but send your writing first. Alot of what I've read abotu publishing mention nogt priding your work enough to have your name on it.

Natasha | 42 comments advice...dop not just send queries under pen name...it implies shame.

Kenzie | 2838 comments Hmm ... I've thought of it. But I think I'm too selfish to write under a pen name. The thought of walking into a bookstore and seeing my name on the shelf.... *sighs contentedly* XD


message 15: by Ashley (new)

Ashley (ashocalypse) You need to send works to a publisher under your given name so they know who to write the check to.

I'm partial to the first name Ophelia. But I really would like to see my own name in lights.


message 16: by T.O.L.I. (new)

T.O.L.I. (taleoflostink) | 1770 comments yeah you know....i agree with kenzie...*D


message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

Uuuuuuhhhhh I tried thinking of a pen name and totally failed. I don't know if I even want one really . . .


Xerxes Break(Vivian Ephona) (ephona) I just want Ephona in my name cause I love it. I could like sneak it in for my last or middle name...XD

Ranelle Ephona...hm...

I will not write under a pen name. I adore my first name--plus it's, you know, ME.

Also, my last name is... ironic. I refuse to put it on the internet, though, so you guys don't get to know it until I'm published and my name is on the book. :D

but Mckenzie... you know my last name, so you can see the irony in it, can't you? And don't go around giving them hints, because the only possible hint to give makes it REALLY obvious what my last name is, and, again, I don't want that on the internet.


message 20: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments LOL. Yeah, and your name on the book there! Tee-hee. That rocks. Me is jealous of your last name. My last name is long and EVERYONE pronounces it wrong the first time. Oh well ... maybe I should consider a pen name. XD

Your last name ISN'T hard to pronounce. People are just lazy and don't pay attention when they read names. I mean, you can literally sound your last name out, Mckenzie.


message 23: by Maryse (new)

Maryse (belle_maryse) | 12 comments I think if I do (somehow) get published I would prefer using a pen name. I wouldn't want people at work to know that I've written anything, especially if I decide to use them for inspiration. It'll be weird, ehehehe


message 24: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments Yeah, I know. I just hate going, "no! E-G-A-R at the end, not I-G-E-R." Or reminding them it's T-E-R at the beginning, not T-W-I. XD


message 25: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments LOL, Maryse. That's why I tend to not base my characters on people, unless they let me. I even try to stay away from using people's names.


message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

my last name's pretty easy to pronounce.


Xerxes Break(Vivian Ephona) (ephona) My last name isn't hard to pronounce it just sounds weird with my elaborate first name.


message 28: by Rachel (new)

Rachel | 13 comments I can't think of a pen name....otherwise I would use one maybe something like Liza Martin or Mina Rose :)

Hehehe. Sometimes I can't help it; some people are very interesting. But I'm with you on not using names of people I know
