I had a wonderful, even fabulous, time at the awards gala on Saturday night. Lots of authors (Shannon Hale, Brandon Mull, Brandon Sanderson, James Dashner, Mette Ivie Harrison, and Jessica Day George, just to name a few), and lots of people who do stuff with authors. (And yes, that is an official position!:)) I did my first podcast interview (eek! when I find the business card she gave me, I'll do a link), and even ran into Angela, an editor I used to read slush for. All in all, a lovely night. I don't have pictures because it was a crazy day and I forgot my camera. And it appears my blog buddies don't have pictures up either, but I'll try to find some in the next couple of days.
I do, however have *drumroll please* pictures of me! (I know, that's what you all wanted *snort*) But I really would like to know what you think! My sister in law, Kati, did my author photos and I've narrowed it down to four. I would love and adore you forever if you would briefly comment and tell me which one you like the best! (I like them all, but, yanno, they're of me, so go figure.:))
Okay, Author Photo Option Number One!
And Number Two!
And Number Three . . .
And last but not least, Number Four.
We really did take a whole bunch of pictures against a bunch of different backgrounds . . . the ones against the light bricks just turned out really good. So, I'm leaning toward numbers three and four . . . but two days ago I was totally on board with One and Two . . . I can't decide. Help! Give me a vote please! (And later, when one of these pics is on the jacket cover you can either grin and tell whoever you're shopping with, "I helped her pick that picture." Or you can shrug and say, "Meh, I liked the other one better." Either way, you'll look cool in front of your friend(s). But you can't look cool if you don't vote!:)
Thanks for your help!
