....it's a rare Monday post from me! But I will pop in on my "off days" for special occasions, including two I'll share below...

Photos

I had some new author photos shot recently by the talented Leah Kelly. Here are my four favorites--two indoor and two outdoor shots.

1. Thoughtful chick in specs



















2. Jaunty angle



3. Philly girl
4. Garden variety author






































I like each of the photos for different reasons. I'm curious to know what you think! Please visit my Facebook page to vote: http://www.facebook.com/AuthorLaurelGarver.

    1. I'm kind of partial to that one too. I feel a bit like my face is naked without my glasses. I had to give up contacts 14 years ago. But these specs have transitions lenses that turn dark in the sunshine. Not so good for outdoor photography.

    1. The beauty is I have rights to all of them, so I don't necessarily have to use only one.
