I’ve published two novellas via Amazon Kindle under a pseudonym. They’re not fantastic, not terrible, sold okay...but now I’m preparing to query traditionally and I plan on querying and (hopefully) getting published under my real name. Should I even bother bringing up the pseudonym-self-published books?
You say just what you said to me here: "I've published two novellas under a pseudonym" and leave it at that. It's important to mention this only because your agent needs to know you've got some publishing history. It won't mean the difference between yes or no on this new novel, but it can mean the difference between debut/not a debut. You don't want to discover the hard way that your agent has been pitching you as a debut if you're not.
