I’m using a pen name now.
-Because I want to make my writing professional and I want to separate professional like A (the writing) from professional life B (the day job).
-My surname is the same as someone famous.
-My pen name fits the genre better.
What is the new name???
Jessa Forest 🙂
It’s my middle name and a variant of my given name. So I still know it’s me and I won’t get confused.
What’s new with my blog?
-I’ve started working with an editor and project manager so hopefully things will get a little less chaotic and random around here. I’ll be able to make news updates more consistently. And more fun stuff for you to read.
What’s new with The Slaughter Chronicles?
-Everything I’ve previously published, all 1 short story and 1 novella, will be re-published in a short fiction collection I’m working on (Pulling Teeth and Other Stories of the Slaughter Chronicles).
-All of my fiction will now be released under the name Jessa Forest.
What’s new with my poetry?
-Girl + Muse and Lupercalia have been re-launched with my new name and are only available for download directly from me on this site. They are still free 🙂
-All previous publications in print and online magazines still carry my real name. They will not be changed.
-All new poetry publications, self-published and published in literary journals, will be under the name Jessa Forest.
I really appreciate y’all sticking with me and being patient while I get things organized.
