I’m far from having to worry about this yet, but The Millions has posted an article about funny author photos. Here is the gallery that the writer refers to by Marion Ettlinger: http://www.marionettlinger.com/gallery1.php
Some of the photos look fine to me, but others are quite hilarious. Why do most of them look so upset? Did their books not turn out the way they had hoped? Did they just realize they stepped in dog poo?
I wonder how the authors feel about their photos? Or maybe after going through so many revisions and heartaches to get their book published, they couldn’t give a crap about how their photo looks.
