I found out today there is an author named Summer Jordan. Blink. Blink. Blink. Scratches head.

  1. Yikes.

  2. ‘Summer Jordan has had fifteen books published writing as Betty Jo Schuler.’ I guess when she switched from children’s books to erotic romance, she needed a new pen name. Lucky you. She could have went with BJ Schuler instead. 🙂

  3. Wow. What are the odds of that?

  4. Raine, Yeah fun times. I swear. I’m trying to figure out what I’ve done that’s created the Karma I’ve been receiving lately. Enough already.

  5. Bernard, I saw that she wrote under another name until recently. I think the other choice of name would’ve been better and FAR less confusing.

  6. Charli, I was wondering the same thing. What are the odds? *ggg* I figure they lie somewhere between ‘slim to none’. Snort.

  7. What is that old thing about “imitation being the sincerest form of flattery”? Not going for that? Nah, didn’t think so.

  8. On second thought, I am sympathetic. You can’t write erotic romance as Betty Jo anything. The woman was probably desperate.

  9. Laura, Yeah, I’ve heard that one before, but…sigh.

  10. Laura, I guess if I was going to do a name that was similar to one already in use, I’d pick something closer to a popular author’s name. :/

  11. I can only repeat what Raine said!

    On the other hand, it could be worse…. isn’t there another Lora Leigh out there? I’m almost sure I read a disclaimer somewhere where EC’s LL had to clarify that they weren’t one and the same person, and further more there was no connection between certain books.

  12. Vanessa, I hadn’t heard about there being two Lora Leighs. Smacks forehead. Years ago a girl called herself Jordan Winter, which I thought was funny…sort of. I’m not laughing so much with this latest one. I just have to believe that she just didn’t know any better.

  13. Vanessa, there’s a Lori Leigh, one letter difference. It does not seem to have hurt Lora’s career, the way she’s tearing up bestseller lists.

    Jordan, you’re more of a rock star than you give yourself credit for.

  14. “I’m trying to figure out what I’ve done that’s created the Karma I’ve been receiving lately.”

    Meme Karma! I knew it existed.

  15. Charli, LMAO! That’s funny. Rock star. Snort! I am in no way a rock star in this business. Heck, I’m the farthest thing from it. *ggg* Thank you for the laugh. I needed it. 😉

  16. LOL Lynn!!! Maybe that’s it. I knew it had to come from somewhere. 😉
