What name should you publish under?

If you are planning on self-publishing a name is important.

One of the first things I did was to set up a publishing name. Second Act Press. This has a personal meaning to only me and gives my books a bit of publishing weight.

If you are writing a book, start thinking. It’s a big decision.
