I am writing my first novel. When I finish, I'd like to try publishing it. I've read other questions regarding the publishing process and they suggest that an aspiring author must do things like book tours, interviews, etc. While I'm not opposed to those things, I would like to remain anonymous.
In case anyone is concerned, I'm not writing anything inappropriate. I just value my privacy. I read another question about how practically to implement a pseudonym but I want to know how doing so effectively might hinder my entrance into the world of fiction.
I'm willing to do things like radio interviews, podcasts, blog posts, etc as long as they don't require me to show my face or disclose personal information. How severely do you guys think this would harm me?
