What’s in a name?

Being a well known author can help you: J.K Rowling has broken out of Children’s Literature and has written a book for adults. The name of the novel, plot and other details haven’t been released yet but there’s already lots of buzz over this, details are going to be released later in 2012.

Sometimes it’s better to be unknown: Patricia O’Brien had published 5 novels but her 6th effort was rejected multiple times. When she switched to a pen name her novel sold within 3 days. The Dressmaker by Kate Alcott is a historical fiction novel about a seamstress who survives the sinking of the Titantic. Sounds like a great read. So many books and movies about the Titanic focus on the night of the sining, it will be interesting to read a book that goes beyond that.

Nothing to do with names: EW’s Shelf Life has a sneak peak at Insurgent, the sequel to Divergent by Veronica Roth. I can’t wait for May 1st, I loved Divergent.

  1. I didn’t know Kate Alcott was a pen name, no wonder I couldn’t find any info on her.
