Better to be called George than Georgina …?

Are you more likely to be taken seriously submitting work as a writer if you are male? img057

Just wanted to share this interesting article by writer Catherine Nichols who got nowhere submitting a novel under her own name so, in desperation, reinvented herself as ‘George’! The results were quite different.

Does it vary depending in which country you live or the type of book you are writing?

Has anybody experience of submitting under a different gender? If so, did it work?!
