Pen name migration in progress!

All right! Back in November when I wrote my previous blog post here, I’d decided to make the move from my previous pen name Nina del Arce to using my real name Vilhelmina Ullemar. I still had two books published under Nina del Arce—and originally, I intended to keep it that way. At the same time, I was planning on publishing future books in those series under my real name.

Well. I changed my mind. It’s been a lot of work, much of which is still in progress, but I’m actually re-publishing both REVIVED and CEMETERY SHIFT under Vilhelmina Ullemar. Check out the new e-book covers!

Things are a bit slow in updating, so some of the Amazon stores still say the author is Nina del Arce —and I’m not quite sure how to change my author page on Goodreads without messing with the entire system, haha. But hey! It’s getting there.

For now, I’m focusing on migrating the e-book versions and getting them into more different stores, starting with Kobo and Smashwords. Since I’m new to both of those platforms the books don’t have any reviews there yet—let me know if you want a free copy in exchange for posting a review on one of those sites.

As for the print versions of the books, I’m going to migrate them as well—I just need to make sure I’ve sorted out any errors in the process before I get to that.

Anyway, that’s it for now! More updates soon!

It’s alive!

Woah, okay. This is a big deal. A whole new website, with a blog and everything!

OK, it’s really not that big. Not the site in itself—anyway. Moreso is the reason that I needed it.

You see, I only just recently had a dramatic change of heart (which is very me, by the way), and ditched my former pen name. The one where I’d published two books, already had a website, a Goodreads account, and several social media accounts. Oops?

But honestly, it was too much work keeping up separate identities. I barely have time to be me as it is, besides taking care of the day job–I definitely don’t have the time to be two people. Therefore, I decided to let go of the pen name Nina del Arce and use my legal name to promote all my future work.

That being said, I haven’t yet completely decided what to do with the two series that I started under my pen name (I know, shocking!). But I’ve been stuck on the sequels for years—partially because I’ve been far too busy doing other things, to be fair, but also due to a change in my creative agenda. I just don’t feel like working on those books right now, so I’m not going to. I may return to the series at a later time, but for now they are put on ice. The books will still be available through Amazon, though!

Anyway. I’m working on new things. I’m excited to write again—and that’s worth a lot. Here’s hoping you guys want to join me as I continue on my writing journey in the years to come!

Best,

Vilhelmina
