Katie Holmburg | 4 comments Hi,
I recently switched my books over from my pen name Kat Seaholm to my real name Katie Holmburg.
The Seeker Files series currently contains 2 books.
Book One: In Search of Justice
Book Two: In Search of Healing.
I've already made the changes on Amazon, will these changes transfer over automatically? If not, is there some way that I can get it changed?
Thanks in advance!

The primary author name cannot be changed.

How would that work? Would it come up as under both Katie Holmburg and Kat Seaholm? Or would it be better if I deleted the books and readded them under my real name? I plan on this being a six book series and any other books that I write will be under Katie Holmburg as well

Scott | 18310 comments Books must retain the original name under which they are published as primary author. The books cannot be deleted.

If your new name is added, they will appear under both profiles.

Then how do I add my name as a secondary author? I'm trying to get this all straightened out. I appreciate your help with this matter
