Romantic Suspense

As some of you already know, I used to write for Harlequin.  I found out something interesting that I did not know.  After a certain amount of years I can get back the rights to my books and publish them again.  All I have to do is contact the Contract Department at Harlequin and get a release in writing.  Awesome! 

What does this mean?  I am going to re-publish my old Harlequin Intrigues as ebooks.  Plus, I have a couple of romantic suspense novels that were never published.  They have been sitting around, collecting dust.  It's time to put them to work. 

I have no idea what name will be on them yet.  I originally used Kasi Blake, but I signed away the use of it to Harlequin, so I would have to get the rights to that back to if I was to use it.  I'm thinking of using a pen name instead like Braile Chandler, Brenda Blake, or something with the last name stone.  Which one do you think sounds better for a romance writer?

I don't want to use K. C. Blake because that is on my YA novels.

I like Braile Chandler better.

I'll second Stephanie and say Braile Chandler. I like it. :)

I'm the wrong person to comment on names, since I'm so bad at remembering them, but . . . Harlequin kept your name?!

Braile Chandler sounds good to me too. Good luck!
