There's an interesting conversation at the Readerville forum about women writers and the desire, occasionally seriously reflected upon, to assume a male pseudonym to get published.

Kevin Smokler (creator of the brilliant virtual book tour concept), author MJ Rose (who is also behind the excellent book promotion blog, Buzz, Balls & Hype) and others have chimed in with their take on the sad state of trying to break on through to the other side, so to speak, and whether one should go under deep cover to do so.

I, for one, would never use anything but my real name, but then again, I'm not a published author, am I? Special thanks to writer Martha O'Connor for the shoutout that brought this thread to our attention in the first place.
