Sorry, this is going to be a quick me-me-me post because I want to let you know my author interview at Indies Unlimited is going to be published on March 26th [in north America]. For us Downunder, it should be availalbe on the 27th? Anyway, I’ll post the link as soon as it goes live.
I really enjoyed this interview as it allowed me to wax lyrical on a lot of different subjects. The only thing I’m a tad anxious about is the author photo that will accompany the interview. It is me, but a much younger me, taken when I was thinner and prettier. The only thing that hasn’t changed too much is the hairdo.
When I began this blog I made a conscious decision to ‘be myself’, even if my views on life, and the meaning thereof did not endear me to potential ‘customers’. I think I’ve been true to that principle, but I did not factor in my own vanity. So the reason you won’t find a photo of me anywhere on my site is because I hate the few photos that have been taken of me over the last two decades.
I should be mature enough not to care, but I’m not. 😦 I have always been camera shy, and freeze up whenever I see a camera pointed in my direction, so the only photos in which I look ‘good’ are the candid camera ones.
The photo that will appear with the interview is one of those candid camera ones, taken one Christmas when the Daughter was little, and I was happy. Bear that in mind when you see it.
One thing this whole author photo thing has highlighted in my mind is that I cannot procrastinate any longer. I am going to have to get a current photo taken, even if I end up looking like the Wicked Witch of the West. -sigh- I will also have to grow up, and grow out of this silly vanity thing.
