Every month we have a new Perk poll at Coffee Time Romance...so i thought I would give you a taste of the new one...

Many authors have multiple Author names depending on the type of books they write. Do you like one author to have several author names?

The Perk Poll is located below the navigation bar on every page of the site!

I guess this depends partially on the genre. I know there may be a good reason for someone to write under one name in the Romance genre but another name in the Erotica genre as the audiences may be different.

In SF or Fantasy this doesn't matter as much, nor I suspect would it in other types of fiction.

I personally don't care but I think an author could limit themselves with multiple author names.

I generally get to know my favorite authors by all their names. I understand though why some authors do it. And I wonder if there aren't legal issues when they're working for different publishers who might want them to use different names.
