Here Comes Trouble


A couple weeks ago, I had the first professional photographs taken of myself, all by myself, since my college graduation photo Which I do not have a copy of. Not sure what got into me. Wanted to do it before I couldn’t wear heels any more? Needed a good head shot for my obituary? Hard to say.

It could have something to do with my “Three Books in Three Months” campaign. I’ve got a lot of promo to do and where better to start than with a bunch of pampering like profession hair and make up and mani-pedi? Also a new outfit! Except the shoes, those are about four years old and still beloved.

Sister Issues is coming out October 15, 2015, in a print edition, so maybe I can use one of these photos for a mug shot on the back cover. But now I have to pick.


Which one would you choose?


    1. I chose from about 8-10 shots and went with the photographer’s suggestions, Jackie. If I crop the full body shot you can’t tell my arms are crossed. I like that, too. But in the proofs with arms not crossed my eyes were too crinkled up because I was smiling really wide. So that’s why he chose these two, because my eyes are visible. Who knew? I am used to pics where my eyes are little slits, lol.


    1. It took me a really long time but it is so worth it! I encourage you both to do it and daughter sooner than later:)) It would be so nice to have some younger photos of myself, but then I think, well, I should look like my photos when I’m at signings and conferences, and I do.


    1. Thank you for your generous hospitality, sis. It was a very relaxing time visiting the old vacation spot:) Brought back lots of good memories. And thanks for your comment on my photos. Probably first and last time I will have professional author pics taken:))
