the fluff

I have to pick an author photo for my book. I also have to make a title. Titles are hard for me - not a strength. So far my leading contender is "Birds, Bees, and Church Trailer Thieves." Opinions?
And an even more fluffy request for opinions: which photo is the best "author" photo for the back of the book?


  1. I like the one with the dangly earrings. The background is more solid, and you look very glamourous.

  2. The first one is the most professional, so if that's what you're going for, I'd stick with that one or something like it, but I always like author photos taken outside. Natural light is the best. You should get a photography student at State to do a photo shoot for you for their portfolio. Just don't take your top off no matter what they say.

  3. I vote for the 2nd one from top[, w. dangly earrings as you look best, most glamorous in this pic and it never hurts to put your best face forward, esp. in print!
