Presenting my new author photo!

Three weeks I posted the nine finalists and asked for your opinions on which author photo to choose.  Your comments (over 130 of them - wow!) were incredibly helpful - thank you!

While a lot of you liked #9, it's true that glasses can quickly date a picture.  #4 was another favorite, but didn't seem quite right for the tone of my novel (maybe if I were writing romantic comedies).  Finally, after a lot of debate, I choose #1 (the one that Sab H. commented makes me look the most "bad-ass").


Thanks again to Vania / VLC Productions. She takes great pictures!

It's classic and will last you through several levels!

If I remember correctly, I think this was my favorite. You look very cerebral but also bad-ass. Nice.

I can definitely understand what you mean about #4 not being the right tone if you're writing YA dystopian. This one is awesome, too, though!

I like this photo a lot. I think my first choice was number 4, but I can understand why you didn't use that one. I can't wait to see it on the back cover of the book!
