What's in a name?

In my previous post I mentioned that I would occasionally ask for your feedback on various topics and this is one of those occasional moments!

See, I'm having a bit of trouble deciding what my "name" should be - "Jennifer Stephens" or "Jen Stephens" or something all together different. For example, my dad always liked "Jenni Lynn". Those of you who know me know that I'm not too crazy about Jenni (with an "i" or a "y" - in any form). Or maybe J.L. Stephens. Or perhaps Jennifer L. Stephens. Or I could use my maiden name - "(Jennifer, Jen, or Jenni) Dominick". Etc., etc., etc. The only rule is that you BE NICE! :)

So . . . I guess I'm giving you input as to what name will appear on the cover of my books! I do have a favorite, but I want to know what you think. Leave a comment at the bottom of the page and cast your "vote". No, I can't promise that it'll be a completely fair outcome, as I do have the final say, but I can tell you with certainty that there will be NO RECOUNTS! :)

Personally I like either Jennifer Stephens or Jennifer Lynn Stephens the best. But I think it would be a good idea to google Jennifer Stephens if you haven't already, just to see who might be out there with the same name. I've also found it helpful to run a search on Amazon to see what other writers might turn up. The results might make a difference in what you decide to go with.

Jennifer L Stephens

But if you wanted to have a bit of anonimity, using Dominick would be good too. It will help out when you a big rich and famous writer and everyone wants your autograph... maybe cut down on the paparazzi!! *grin*

If we are gonna dream, might as well dream big right!?! Can't get the moon if we shoot for uh, the roof??

Blessings to you, Jen! can't wait to read your book!
