The Most Frightening Thing About My Book















The Author Photo.
I was tempted to paste someone else's head on my body, but all I actually did was airbrush away some lint on my shirt.
Damn, I have a lot more gray than I thought! Maybe I should go back to bleaching my hair. It hides a multitude of sins.
Bet ya can't tell I lost four pounds!
Oh well...
Luckily, writers don't have to be pretty.

In twenty or thirty years from now you will look back at that and wish you looked like that and felt like that and could think like that. How well I know. Good luck on the book!

Tom,
How true it is! I thought I was hideous and fat when I was 20 years old, but now I'd give a kidney to have that "fat" 130 pound body again!
However, I don't wish I felt or thought the way I did at 20. I was still 19 years away from my bipolar being diagnosed. I was in the throes of a three year depression that felt like being locked in a dark pit. Except for losing my emotional intensity, I don't regret one moment of taking Lithium. I could never again go back to being a loose cannon like I was before!
I actually started going gray when I was 27. So it isn't always a sign of old age!
Really!
Once my editor is finished with his final edit, the publisher will have some words to put with this fearsome face!

I can relate, as I made Mall Diva take 50 million shots of me for the LaGrange Symphony program (I'm concertmistress). Some problem with the camera kept making me look old and overweight.
