I've Always Sorta Wondered This Too
This is something I've always wondered, but it took The Longstockings to voice it perfectly. On their site someone asked the following question:
Can I ask you guys a couple slightly more technical questions? Do you get your author photos done professionally? Or have a friend take them? What are your opinions on acknowledgement sections? Long or short? Who to thank?? I'd be interested to hear what you all think about these kinds of things...
Well asked. A couple answers have come in thus far from the authors who work the blog, but I'm curious about the rest of youse folks. Photographs are difficult little things. Where do you have them done? Who does them? Sometimes I'll stare and stare at an authorial photo and wonder why they went with the one they did (I ain't naming names).
Any opinions on the matter?
