Pen Names IV: The Re-Pennenning

Ah yes, here we go again. So I'm planning to start putting out my realname fiction later this year, but I've decided I'm definitely going to have a separate-from-my-real-name pen for my F/F stuff (mainly because I'd like to take my original fiction in a non-romancy direction, but I still want to have the option of writing tropey F/F and possibly some tropey M/M under this other pen name).

And I don't like the one I'd settled on originally.

So, I have a few possibilities in a poll. Check as many as you like! ("Mar" is a shortened form of my middle name, though I'm not sure how well it works as a first name. I like it because it's fairly unique which would make it easier to brand my stuff, but maybe a more recognizably female name would be better for this purpose?) I've checked that none of these are currently in use on Amazon, and all of them are a good length to fit on covers and look nice to me on a sample cover I mocked up. I just can't choose! So tell me which ones you like.

Comments are also welcomed.

Runoff poll

I think at this point, it's probably a toss-up between Elisa Kerr (I also like the Alyssa Kerr spelling, but I think I like Elisa Kerr even better) and Mar Delaney. I love that the top vote-getters in the poll were also my favorites going into it. Though Evelyn Rae is also a strong contender.

Runoff poll? Runoff poll! \o/



ETA: And I just now thought of Mer Delaney - as in, short for Meredith? Not that my name is Meredith either. But for those who had issues with "Mar" as a name, I don't know if that works better ...?
