I’ve been finishing my mythic creature short stories that will be published under a pen name of Petra Cor. Why use a pen name? So, those style of stories (which are creature/human erotic romance) are not confused with my regular romance that will be under my own name. Obviously , I wouldn’t be blogging about it if I were worried about people knowing that Petra Cor is a pen name I use. Like Nora Roberts writing her Eve Dallas futuristic cop stories under the name of J.D. Robb. We all know they are both Nora Roberts, but the genres are different enough that she probably wanted to avoid confusion for her readers.
Readers can be really loyal beasties and we fear change, so if you write something different than what we’re expecting, we may come at you with pitchforks and fire reminiscent of the mobs going after Frankenstein’s monster (or maybe that’s just me). So looking at it from the reader’s perspective, I am using a pen name. Coming from the writer side, it makes little difference to me.
So, I guess what I’m saying is that coming in the near future will be some Petra Cor (aka me) shorts. Yay! I’m excited that I’m finally being productive and will finally have something published to show for it.
Depression is a terrible thing that robs one of all motivation even for the things that one loves. So, when one (aka me) finally starts feeling better and finally finds a little motivation and finally is being productive and finally feels as though the cloud smothering your brain has dissipated, then one has to celebrate. So here I am talking about myself in some weird 3rd person fashion celebrating with you that I’m feeling more human every day. Yay and YAY!!
I’ll let ya’ll know when something is officially out and available for sell. And thank you to everyone who was encouraging or supportive in any way (past, present or future).
