The dreaded moment has arrived. I delayed for months, but I finally must choose an author photo to send to my publicist.
The editor allowed me to not have my photo in the book itself, but the publicist needs something to work with. I tried the old "How about a Marie cartoon" trick but no-go.
For photos, I got nothing. Well, not nothing. Some photos. Just not really ideal ones. I have some good Africa ones, but they have face in shadow, blur, things like that. I'll put those on the snapshot page. Maybe they can use some of those somewhere. Anyway, the publicist can have a look. If she likes some, I'll send her a cleaned-up high-res file.
Please vote now--I have to send the author photo in on Thursday (today). Do you think I can get away with the one of me with my head turned (no. 2 by eSwede, FYI-the object of my fascination is swimming ducks--go figure), or the one where I'm in my pajamas (no.3 by self-timer)? My mother took the other two.
