But today I’m going to be myself

A couple of weeks ago, I did a post about how sometimes I’ve thought about being someone else, or using a different name for my public persona as a writer. That’s why there’s a touch of irony in what I’m about to announce.

For the last three years, the title of this blog has been Dag-Lit Central. I thought it was a kind of fun idea – maybe even a bit of a conversation starter. And yes, it did actually start one or two conversations. But not a lot more than that.

I’m now moving into a new phase in my career (or whatever you want to call it) as a writer. My focus is less on self-publishing and more on working with publishers – especially with the re-release of Magnus Opum now hopefully only a few weeks away, and Thomas and the Tiger-Turtle due out in mid May. So I think it’s time to say goodbye to Dag-Lit Central. From now onwards, I’m putting my own name up in lights and proudly proclaiming myself. You’ll see there’s a new link to access this site, and a new title to go along with it.

It doesn’t mean I’ll be changing too much. I’ll still be just as daggy as before. I’ll still try to write stories and posts that will put a smile on your face and maybe get you to see things a little bit differently. But I’ll do that under my own name. I feel kind of proud about it.

Anyway, the good news is, the old Dag-Lit Central link will continue to work for a while. I’m not sure what will happen to this site next. It’s likely there will be some upgrading, but I’m hoping it will never get too slick. I’d like to keep this as a fun, down-to-earth kind of place where I can talk about my books and other stuff that interests (or obsesses) me.

It’s all a little bit exciting. Hope you have a great week too.
