Author Photos--the outtakes

It seems a shame to not show some of the other fabulous pics that Dawn took during my author photo shoot. Ultimately I decided on the one that I think worked the best for my upcoming book A NEED SO BEAUTIFUL. But there were others in the running.

What do you think? Did I pick the right one?

THE WINNER: Choice 1



Choice 2:

Choice 3:



Choice 4:


And this concludes my America's Next Top Author posts. :-) Smize!

I really love #3, but in all honesty, they're all great. The first one really shows the color of your eyes beautifully. She did a great job!

Amanda said...

I really love #1. I think you picked right! It's really intense, and your eye color is amazing.

Call me indecisive if you want,but I just can not pick a single photo! You are looking so absolutely gorg each one of the photos!!

andrewcarmichael said...

you look absolutely fanTAStic in all of these!

considering the tone of the book, though (and how it brought me to tears...), 3 is too happy, I think. 2 might be too sultry. I really, really love 1 because it totally captures the right mood, and has this subtle suggestion of something supernatural-ish with the wind and everything.

I think you made the right choice!

Love the first.

you made the right choice. the camera tilt makes the shot, and the mood is perfect. also it's a great use of the background AND I like the merest suggestion of that smexy neckline!

I think you made a great choice! But really all the photos turned out really, really good!

They are all awesome (seriously girl, HOW did you get so photogenic. But still, I think you chose the right one. :)

Tee Brown said...

I think you made the right choice for this book. You can use the others for other promotional purposes, though. They're all great!

#1 is the most mysterious/compellng...but I love #4 as well. Both photos look like you have secrets.

They are all beautiful.

These are great! Number one is my favourite as well. :)

nova said...

And I, too, am totally loving #1!

Shanyn said...

I love #1! I also really like #2 because it shows a different side of you (you look totally different in that pic)!

Hoping Penguin has one of your books to pick up at BEA :)

Kelly said...

That must have been one hard decision. They are all beautiful!

Casey McCormick said...

#2 is my favorite but I think #1 is awesome for A NEED SO BEAUTIFUL!

Mindi Scott said...

I agree that you picked the right one! But they are all lovely. :-)

It's your eye-color... they're so pretty!
I think they all look lovely, so yes, I'd say choosing the first picture was the right decision. :)
Love, Hannah
