Choosing the Right Head Shot


Call me cheap, but I don’t want to pay for having an expensive head shot produced for my use in publicity materials. First, I am not Dean Koontz, with thousands of fans and followers. I am not Tom Clancy or Nora Roberts, a best-selling author. I am simply Fay Moore, a country girl with a big dream–to write murder mysteries that people will buy and enjoy reading.

In that vein, I picked a photograph that I think would make a good head shot when needed.

I think it looks kind of “writer-ly.” People will look at it and think, she’s friendly, approachable.

Maybe between a friendly face and an attractive cover, I can sell a book or two. What do you think?

  1. Great smile, Fay! 😀

    I didn’t want to shell out money to a photographer either – it’s crazy what some of them want for digital copies, especially when they’re pictures of you. Luckily, my sister-in-law LOVES photography and has a really nice, expensive camera. We ended up doing a trade – she did a photo shoot with me in exchange for a giant Italian dinner at my home. Of course, we’re family, so that sort of trade worked out pretty well. 😉
