    Default Nome de Plumes

    Anyone have opinions on getting published under an assumed name? I would think it is reasonable as long as you aren't slandering people. Personally, I don't think the actual identities of most authors is even relevant. I'm thinking more in terms of actual books etc than pontificating online. I don't think my mug should make or break selling stuff I write

    Should read libel not slander. I'll leave that for the audiobook.

    i publish all of my music under an (obviously) assumed name, if i wrote a book or something it would be the same, i dont see a problem with it as long you arent doing it to libel someone.

    i hate my name so i wouldnt really want to publish anything under my real name.

    writers write stuff that's made up all the time, nothing wrong with changeing your name while your at it, me I've always signed my name to everything I wrote, especialy when I told the truth/slander

    Yeah. I'm looking more at fiction and/or general commentary I have accumulated. Have no interest in publishing inanities of private lives. I just find it silly that even fiction authors' identities are scrutinized.

    That's wise. As of 1/1/2006, you really have to use your real name in individual circumstances. You can be subject to criminal sanctions. I intend to obey the law. The other exceptions to libel still apply, obviously. Even there, you can run up against expanded tort law. Best to be careful.

    Yeah, that's basically what I'm thinking.

    Years ago I published a few things under a nom de plume but, I don't really see the need for it anymore. I don't publish anything I have doubts about and I don't really care if twenty years from now someone has a problem with something I had out in the past. Fuck em if they do.

    i used to be big into creative fake names. i used then to add an air of mysteriousness to my writings. i have a boring, normal name; i wanted something unique. nowadays, i dont mind when my real name gets attached to something ive had published. however, when its something that appears online, im still leery of using my real name in many places. in that case i still prefer to use the personae of aXa, whom ive been using for about 6 years now.

    Agree. I have to publish some things under my real name. I just find it silly to use beyond that. I abide by the privacy laws as they stand as of 1/1/2006.
