I have some words of advice to any aspiring authors debating whether to change their names. If you're going to do it, do it NOW.
Don't be like me and switch your name and your blog right after you get your book deal. I've virtually disappeared from Google! Even my Twitter feed, which was find-able up until the day before yesterday, has disappeared. I'm off the grid.
Thank goodness for fab friends like Sam and Sarah and Rebecca and Susanne and Shayda, without whom I would be totally invisible!
To my understanding, Google crawlers will find this blog eventually. Then people will be able to find me. Until them, I'm incognito! *dons cape and mask, peeks around corner* *steals candy from the bowl on your desk* *empties flask of something suspicious into punchbowl* Mwahahaha!
I can see you, but you can't see me! Be afraid. Be very afraid!
P.S. I got my author pictures taken yesterday! More about that tomorrow!
P.P.S. Look what Shveta made for me! Slide on Goodreads!!!
