In Which I Finally Make a Decision

Thank you for all the feedback regarding my author pictures (in this post)!

My internet conveniently went out directly after I posted the pictures and it took our provider five freakin' days to get someone out to our house to fix it. So, I'm sorry I didn't respond to everyone's comments, but I'm very thankful for the input. It's a really hard decision because Julie did such a great job, but I think, for RED BUTTERFLY, at least, I'm going to go with picture #4, in the Chinese top, because that's what I really envisioned for this book. I think my overall fave is #1, so that will go up as my avatar shortly and if there's ever a need to choose another author picture (and I'm not too much older and grayer at that point) I'll use that one....


Thanks again for taking the time to give me feedback! I was blown away by the number of responses here on my blog and on facebook. Since I couldn't get on internet at home, whenever I had a chance to log on for a minute I was bowled over with LOVE (which was AMAZING).

Thanks again to Julie for her artistic eye, her friendship, AND, most importantly, her airbrushing and eyelash-adding skills.

As a post script -- my eye is still not healed. Unfortunately I may need surgery to get it back to normal, but I'm giving it a few more weeks to see if it will behave itself. Just one of those many ups-and-downs of life, I suppose!

((Hugs)) to all!

  5. Any photo you chose would have looked gorgeous, but I do particularly like the one you have!
    Have you tried any natural remedies for your eye? My sister found the homeopathic remedy silica very effective for a severe sty. I hope it feels better soon, as I know from her experience how painful and annoying that can be!

  9. Well the red definitely captures the title of the book! And you look beautiful. I hope that stye goes away soon ... sometimes the body needs a little help though. This year, I've had to have antibiotic ointment for a stye that refused to go away. Surgery sounds so drastic. Let us know how you are doing.
