EC Name Reveal
One of the decisions regarding my career that I’ve been struggling with of late is whether to “come out” as the EC author. Today is the day I do that. It’s been hard keeping myself quiet, and I haven’t much liked, while in Natalie Dae mode, speaking to people I know as Emmy/Sarah as though I don’t know them. It’s like deceiving people, and although the whole point of having different pen names is so you can “be” someone else, I realise it isn’t for me.
Thanks to all those people who kept ND a “secret” and, if you guessed she was me by my blog post style, thanks for not emailing and asking if she is me, therefore putting me in a bit of a “spot” on whether to admit it or not. And if you’re thinking, “Natalie WHO? Never heard of her!” then that’s because of my piss-poor promotion.
So, today I’m off to jazz up my ND site to reflect “me” more instead of someone I’m not. I suppose I did my polkadot site because it’s far removed from who I really am. You know, keeping everyone separate. But now I can be me in all the genres I write.
Did you just hear that clonk? That was a huge weight falling off my shoulders.
Have a great day, folks!
