Kimberly Sue Iverson

Experience the richness & depth in stories layered with heart & soul.

Full Name

Savage Lands will end up being the last book I put out for a while, if not completely, where I use my shortened name Kim Iverson on the cover. Since I’ve done a lot of pre-talk with with, and shared the cover, also did an author interview with it, I’m not gonna start the change now.

The author interview that I signed up for will be shared with Jotham Austin’s newsletter for August. You can find his website here – https://www.jothamaustin.com/

It’s a really interesting newsletter. He likes to talk about science and stories that follow that too. I highly suggest checking it out.

The reason – I really want to embrace seeing how well my full name does on books. All the other books will sit there and not get changed . . . yet, if at all. The best way that I think I can truly see one versus another is to actually go full on with the full name. I’m also sharing this note now, as well as using Savage Lands for the last so that it really lets people see it. I will include a note in that book too. I will have my list of books show the Kimberly Sue Iverson version too (I have a list of my other work in my books so now there will be two – one under Kim Iverson, one under Kimberly Sue Iverson). Plenty of traditionally published authors do it. I’m just not doing it without your knowledge. Remember I said I would be open with what I do.

I can always change the covers back, or change the existing later on. People will gripe, people will get fussy, but those who’ve followed me all this time have been loyal and understood that I do what makes me happy, THEN what others want me to do if it aligns and feels right for me. I’ve lived my life to please others for far too long, and I ended up losing everything – literally.

So yes, I’m sure people will get annoyed, but I also want to see for myself how well it does. I want to be able to do it in general. My website domain is my full name, my email includes my full name, so for consistency it’s kinda weird not to have everything under Kimberly Sue Iverson anyway.

I have other author friends who are genuinely curious about it too because as they said, they went with the non-feminized version for the same reason we all do, and I would like to help change that stigma if at all possible. I follow my gut, my gut says do this now. So I am. Pure and simple. If gut says no more, I’ll follow that. Every time I have? It’s worked in my favor.
