Oh yeah. One more thing I did this weekend. On Saturday morning.
I shot some new pictures, in preparation of the new book and website updates. Yeah, I do keep a book website too.
This pic I "lifted" from Ibarionex's blog. :-) I can't wait for the proofs. Just like I couldn't wait for Christmas morning when I was a kid.
Anyway, Ibarionex Perello and his wife Cynthia are a wonderful husband and wife photography team. Ibarionex takes the pictures. Cynthia does the technical work with screens, scrims, and lights.
This time we shot everything outdoors at a park and playground near my house. Last time we did Pasadena City Hall. This time, we have a lot more color and playful shots to choose from. I was nervous and WAY too formal the first time out... as you can see from my book website shots.
Anyway, Ibarionex is a great photographer based in L.A. and he's always looking for new clients. I highly recommend him if in L.A.
I gotta turn in everything to my editor and publisher by September 1st for Right Side of the Wrong Bed -- edited manuscript, book cover "author" shot, updates for the website, and other new novel stuff.
Once I narrow my author photo shots down to two or three, I'll let you take a look and vote on the official "book jacket" photo.
