I’ve got important news for you. I’m going to abandone my pen name.
At the time I had to make the decision whether to go with my real name or a pen name, I really had to rush things. Unfortunately, I picked a name that I never really felt comfortable with. I know it’s risky to change the name as an author, especially since so many of you already know me by Piper. But this is a very personal thing and I hope you can understand my motives when I tell you: I couldn’t look at my own books anymore without getting sick of the name.
ANNA KATMORE is very, very close to my real name. With the change you can say I sort of let you all get even closer to myself, which feels a bit weird. But it’s the best possible kind of weird. 🙂
I’ll try to make the change as smooth as I can. For now you’ll still find me as Piper Shelly on Amazon. There’s an addition on all the covers now, which tells you both names at the bottom of each book. Only when the next book is being released, I’ll make the final change there.
No worries about finding me! Although the website url has changed to http://www.annakatmore.com, the former url is still working and immediately redirecting you to my site. You’ll always be able to keep in touch through the contacts you know, but I’d be happy if you accepted my true personality and call me Anna from now on.
I’m sorry for any confusions I’m causing with this, but hey, people who read books are usually smart, right? You’ll get used to it, I’m sure. 😉
Big hugs to all of you for sticking with me even when I go bananas from time to time.
