  •  Somebody sent me the info (0+ / 0-)

    Your web address is in your profile and your book is listed there.  Somebody noticed and sent it to me.  I've been assuming that if authors include that sort of info in their profile that they don't mind being outed on the list, but let me know if that's too much of a leap.  I really don't want to out anyone who wants to remain anonymous.

    •  Oh wait, that wasn't it (0+ / 0-)

      I was kind of puzzled how I found you since your website really doesn't mention your book.  It was a real stumper till I finally found this comment:

      You outed yourself to me a year ago!  ;-)

    •  I was overjoyed to see my name (1+ / 0-)

      But I am surprised that a diary post a long time ago, and my website link were the means.  Please do not misunderstand me, I congratulate you on such a great job of research.  After all, if I didn't want anyone to know I had written a book, I wouldn't have used my name on the cover and I wouldn't have put the information on the website that bears my real name.

      As my profile and my website show, my identity is not a secret; I want anyone who wants to know about me to find what they are looking for.  I make all sorts of information about myself available on the web, but I was surprised to see someone connect the dots between my screen name here and my book, which has been out of print for about 20 years.

      BTW, did you notice my UID?  #207.  Got here on day one, but Meteor Blades beat me by an hour.
