Pen Names and Reader Targeting

So here’s where I’m at: I have some new stuff coming out soon, only I’m not sure where to put it. Or why. Or even how. Strangely, it’s not because I don’t know how to click “Publish” or the equivalent. I mean, that’s probably not it. Right? Thing is, there are trade-offs involved every step…
