Would you prefer a pseudonym to protect your privacy or would you bask in the fame if you published book/s with great success?. After the success of Harry Potter, author Rowling said, “There was a phenomenal amount of pressure that went with being the writer of Harry Potter, and that aspect of publishing those hose books I do not particularly miss." When she began to publish crime stories she used a pseudonym and kept her true identity a secret.

Hi Lolita, you brought to my attention the sordid side of fame, and I cannot but agree that some of that kind of entrapment can be ghastly; even dangerous at times. I guess , what you say makes a lot of sense! Thanks for joining in.
Depends on where you hang out. If you spend your time at the hub of society, or stand out in a crowd then it's likely you'll be courted by the paparazzi. I tend to blend in or head away in the opposite direction (Scarlet Pimpernel-like) .
