Meet Glorie Townson: a pen name or alter ego? #author #reader

Hello there dear friends, fans, geeks, and more. Today I’m making a pretty big announcement, at least it’s big in the realm of The ToiBox of Words. As many of you have figured out, most of my writing leans towards the speculative. I write quite a bit in the genres of paranormal, fantasy, and sci-fi while sprinkling in bit of romance and even faith. In keeping true to my passions and interests I’ve decided to implement the use of a pen name.

Now, obviously this pen name is not meant to be a secret, otherwise, why announce it to the world. The purpose of this pen or alter ego is three-fold. 1. It will allow me to easily distinguish my works and categorize them for fans of particular genres, freeing me to explore and try new things. 2. The use of a pen may help with getting my foot into doors I’ve never entered before because of the genres I’ve written in the past. 3. I’ve always liked the name Glorie and don’t currently have a story in mind for it, so why not get some good use out it.

So in case you missed it, Glorie Townson will be the new pen name for any works I publish in the future that do not fall in the categories of paranormal, fantasy, or sci-fi. In time I’ll create images and a complete separate online presence for Glorie, but for now, she’s simply getting a tab of her own.

The first book I intend to publish under the Glorie Townson pen will be the contemporary romance I’ve been talking about for ages and haven’t released yet, It’s Like the Full Moon. Let me stress the word “yet”, cause believe me when say, it’s coming.

This is an unofficial Author Insights post.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords
