Writers do this all the time...don't they?

The answer is 'no!' Last Saturday, I had one of the most un-typical days a writer can encounter. For the first time in a long time, I wasn't buried under stacks of paper, trying to fight to keep my eyes open to finish just one more scene...zzzzz.:)

No, last Saturday I had an author photoshoot with a local company Photo Junkies. Andrew and Kelty were amazing, but the fun started early in the day.

Manicure, pedicure, hair and makeup-a full day of pampering. Believe me this happens....um...NEVER! :) I mean, I won't lie, I did do edits on a new submission while sitting in the chairs, but at least it was somewhat relaxing lol.

Then, I met them in Sherwood Park and we hit the highway...About twenty-five minutes later we pulled off to the side near a big field-with absolutely nothing except the book props I brought along.

It was so much fun and they were amazing to work with. If you haven't had this experience, I highly recommend it. For $125.00, they made this deadline-exhausted, mom of a sick up all night toddler look not half bad lol:)

I may not get this opportunity again for a long time...if ever, but it was a nice perk of being a writer!

  1. Jennifer, how great is that photo of you with all the books. Clever and appropriate. Like the head shot, too.

  2. Okay, there is no amount of money, no clever camera angle, no amount of pre-photo pampering that would ever make me look like that! Good for you! What a fun day that must have been. Hope your son is well again. (Heard our voice yesterday at our 'meeting' even though I couldn't see you. Heard you, too, Roz - and Aimee and Karen.)
