My headshot. Actually, two headshots as I still can't choose between happy-writer and serious-writer. In fact, I have a very tough time looking at pictures of myself in general. But here they are and I am going to make myself choose one because, revisions complete, this week I'm going to get started on a little bit of promotional work. My first goal is to get the website into some kind of shape by December.
I'm starting to prepare by compiling everything I want to include, both ideas and images. I am also thinking about organizational issues such as how/if the blog should link to website, whether the focus should be on the book or more generally on me as a writer, etc.
In terms of visual elements, besides the headshot, I'd like to include some photographs of me as a kid, dancing, acting, etc. I went through my parents' photo albums this past summer and finally had the snaps I borrowed converted to jpeg files--I'll share some soon.
In the next few weeks, I'll be asking some author friends about their web-site creation experience and will share what I learn. For now...serious or happy?
