my publisher asked for a photo for the back flap on Our Friendship Rules.
i submitted this:
not a photo but to my mind a much better story, the idea of me. and a story (not a yearbook picture) is what a reader comes to book for, isn't it?
i love illustrated author photos like this one grace did with origami paper. i'd love to see more. if you know of one or did one yourself, please post a link in the comments.
