The Truth About Author Photos

Your publisher calls to tell you they're going to put a head shot on the dustjacket of your first hardcover (yippee!) and they need it in the next twenty minutes (oops?).

If you go to the hairdresser and come home with the best hair ever, your photographer will have left on other business.

When you want to update your photo in the next book, your publisher happily agrees, if they can have the new shot in the next twenty minutes.

Your wonderful photographer prefers to shoot you in natural light, aka outside. Thus, you've smiled while standing by an icy lake in a -15C windchill and tried not to inhale blackflies while standing in the yard. (He was frozen and bitten too, so I couldn't exactly complain.)

You discover you take your very best photo after giggling.
