Fun with pseudonymns

Super Publishing Mama posted this a few days back and I meant to repost it as well.

And yes I do know a few authors on that list.

Being a male author in a genre where male authors are a rarity and occasionally viewed with some suspicion I've often toyed with the idea of creating a female nomme de-plume as I know some men in my situation do. I think I've finally hit upon one that's crazy enough that I actually like it: TESS LACOIL

And if anyone asks why I write under that name I'll say something corny like "because my erotica is really INVENTIVE and it creates a lot of SPARKS!"

And all will go well until a writer named Edison comes along and plagarizes me. And then I will cry.
