New Name? New Identity?

First, thanks everybody for all of the kind comments and well wishes yesterday. I appreciate them all! A shout out to my new author friends at Cobblestone. I'm so excited to be a part of this publisher!

So...I decided to use a pen name at Cobblestone. Karen Erickson (maiden name) it shall be. And so I've been thinking - should I change it overall? Just make myself Karen Erickson for good? Crap, I don't know. I want to start a website, but karenerickson.com is already being used - by a realtor named Tami Timbeross!!??!! What the heck? Why is she using my name? Oh, I just read further - her mom's name is Karen Erickson. Huh.

Anywhoo, I need a domain name, I need to write a blurb and various other stuff, I need to do a lot! I feel a little overwhelmed, but in a good way.

ps - If you have a myspace account, check me out. http://myspace.com/kdid210. Add me! I need to network more.
