    Id much rather go for using my own name. I can imagine feeling a much bigger sense of pride if I saw my book out somewhere with my name on not fake one.

    True, very true. And, if you choose real name and not pen name, you have less chance of writing the wrong name during book signings.

    But J.K Rowling hit a road block with her agent on this matter right? He didn't think that kids would read a book about a boy wizard written by a woman. So she used her first two initials instead of her first name. Which would suck for me, being A.L.
