As I’m about to edit my first anthology, it occurred to me that perhaps I should have some proper author photos taken, rather than continuing to use a photo taken two years ago in a hotel bathroom using a camera phone. Luckily, I know quite a few excellent photographers, and one of them, Jim Parker of James R. Parker Photography, was happy to take a few shots at my favorite local park for a reasonable price. Here are my favorites:
I chose not to wear Steampunk because, though I love Steampunk dearly, I don’t want to be pigeonholed as a Steampunk author. I might regret that choice later, but hey, I can always have new pictures taken.
So, dear reader, which one do you think I should use for dust jackets and promotional pictures and user icons and the like?
