Personal Branding

No - not that cute tatoo your mates talked you into after the Xmas lunch party. This is more about how you want the world/reading public/ industry professionals to see you.
And that's a tough one.
You are going to be marketing YOURSELF. Or the person you create as your pen name.
So poor old Bubbles Trixibell has to promote her romance technothriller involving selective RNA/DNA signatures on antimatter drives in CERN using particle physics to bring the couple together while being chased by the Illuminati. Um.

I think I might put this issue to one side until I actually have a contract and therefore something I want to promote.

" Be yourself; no base imitator of another, but your best self. There is something which you can do better than another. Listen to the inward voice and bravely obey that. Do the things at which you are great, not what you were never made for."Ralph Waldo Emerson
