I updated my About page recently to include my name. After three years, I was still reluctant to do that. I realized a couple of things, though…
I’m going to need to connect with my real name in preparation for releasing a book, whether it’s traditionally published or self-published. This means that any distance I thought I was keeping between myself and my online persona is probably counter-productive.
Also…there really isn’t any such thing as privacy when you decide to have a presence on the internet.
You Should Be Happy is now going to include the humor that I’ve been posting, and my author’s blog. I won’t bore you to death with daily updates about The Tiny Giant, but I will be talking about the process and teasing some of what the book is about.
Major milestones, too. I’m getting close to the end of the big heart-rending rewrite. More to come on that soon.
So…hello. My name is Rebecka Ratcliffe, and I’m a writer. Nice to meet you.
