Choosing the right cover and author portrait turns out to be almost as difficult as writing a book. It's the end of April and I haven't finished the cover story yet. Or the portrait story.
This picture was deemed "interesting" but "slightly disturbed."
The lighting in this photo got a thumbs up, but I looked "dreamy" and detached."
Everybody liked this photo. People said it was "pretty" and "looks like a successful author." The prettiness is thanks to make up artist Alexis McKinney, who did the hair and make up. The photographer, whose name I am seeking, did a great job of capturing the moment.
