K.L. Morrill (klmorrill) | 4 comments Hello there,

I have just received an email saying that I am in violation of the librarian policy pertaining to my pen name. I was told that because "KJ" is essentially initials, that it must have periods in between the individual initials. However, my pen name is branded with no initials and I use it that way across all different forms of media. Is there any way to keep my pen name without using periods?

Thank you,
KJ Grace
