Percy Rose – Murder/Crime/Psychological

I have two (2) reasons for using a pseudonym …

  1. I attended a publishers tutorial once where the publisher suggested that one use a pen name when writing in different genre to avoid confusing and disappointing your readers. At the time I thought, My readers are not idiots. However, it seems most of the people who are supposed to know these things think a pseudonym is the go.
  2. I got some kick-back from family for writing such racy, nasty, weird, horrifying stuff. I didn’t mean to offend. To me it’s just a story, but just in case…

Then, I had to find a suitable name. I didn’t want to drift too far from me, so I sat and thought and thought and thought (Yes, I love Pooh Bear) and so arose Per C Rose – Percy Rose. I did cavil at the thought that it is a masculine name, was I subliminally suggesting (even to myself) that a male is more likely to succeed in this genre…Nah! Not in this day and age…I just thought I was being terribly clever. LOL!

I have finished two (2) novels ‘Ruth In Pieces’ and ‘Jenny’s Story’. They are connected but it’s not necessary to read one before the other. I want o self-publish in 2017 but have to re-learn how to do that and do it much better than in the past. After all I do want them to sell. I will put up the occasional excerpt on the sub-pages every now and again, SO, watch this space…
