View Full Version : "Debut novel"

Kind of an odd question I guess, but if a writer publishes in more than one genre under more than one name is the 1st book published with a new name considered the pen name's "debut" novel?

If Jane Doe published 3 books in fantasy and then wrote a dark thriller as John Smith, would the thriller be sold as John Smith's debut novel?

(Totally hypothetical here, I'm just curious after seeing mention of authors using multiple pen names.)

I'm thinking that's how it works.

Love the new website!

I'm building one of my own right now and I may cop some of your organizational ideas if that is okay!
