  1. Lol, nefarious! (But yeah, a lot of them are. *grin*)

  2. Hmm. I wonder what the highest number of pseudonyms an author actually publishes under is.

    • Depends how many different subgenres an author wants to write under. Or sometimes they’re required to take a pseudonym if working with different publishers for different series. Kathryn Smith wrote historical paranormal romances, I think. Kady Cross is for YA steampunk, and it looks like Kate Locke is for adult steampunk. Three different publishers involved.

  3. I know, I was being a little bit facetious.
