I used to have a website called sherriepetersen.com. Made sense since that’s my name, right?
But a funny thing happened with my auto renewal.
It didn’t renew.
Because my credit card expired before the renewal date. And even though my web host tried to contact me, the email messages went to spam, so I never updated my credit card information. And wouldn’t you know, someone in Osaka was quick to jump on that domain name. Because a lot of people in Japan are named Sherrie Petersen.
Rather than try to get my name back from those poachers, I decided to go with something different that still has my name in it. And so, Sherrie Petersen Books was born. Right now a more accurate name would be Sherrie Petersen Book. As in I’ve got one book ready to show the world. But I’m an optimist. And I’ve set a goal to release at least one more book this year.
So, maybe by the time the people in Osaka realize that I’m okay with them having my name (hey, I’m happy to spread my name on multiple continents!), I’ll have lived up to the promise of this name.
Welcome to my new adventure!
