So as I understand it, it's important to choose a publisher that's familiar with the content you're writing because they're more likely to publish a book that's in safe territory rather than try something new. But at the same time, a certain level of publisher loyalty is expected of authors because if an author went from one to the other "La donna è mobile" style, then no publishers would want to deal with them. So what do you do if you want to publish different genres? I've got a few projects in the works at present, but they're significantly different in content. Unique pen names are a must of course (You wouldn't find a love story by Gore Blight or a horror book by Luv N. Cuddles.) but I'm not sure if that by itself is enough. What I'm hoping I can do is this. Publisher 1: Serious action/horror books aimed at young adults. PN: Tom Falcon. Publisher 2: Educational picture book for children ages 3-6. PN: Tom Robbins. Publisher 3: Intense Gonzo style for adults. PN: Thomas Crow. I'm not even sure if it's allowed for a single author to publish under separate pen names, but how else would they publish in such disparate genres?
