One of the first things my friends say to me when picking up a finished copy of A NEED SO BEAUTIFUL is--"Is that you?"
My author photo, taken by the incredibly talented photographer Dawn Goei, was a totally different direction for me. I, get this, wasn't smiling. I looked serious. No, not just serious serious, but I-might-kick-your-ass serious. I loved it!!
But over time, I got sick of people not recognizing me from my author photo. After all, I smile constantly. Annoyingly often. So I asked Dawn to retake my pictures--this time trying to capture more of me.
So I'm pretty happy, although as most people can tell you I seek out and mention each flaw. I won't do that here. Hooray for not having to put on that much makeup again any time soon!
In other news, I believe I might be able to show my amazing cover for A WANT SO WICKED soon. Seriously, I love it so much. It's just... perfect. Will keep you posted!!!
In the meantime, here's this....
