Just an Idea (i.e. Just the Most Awesomest Idea Ever)

You have my word that if I ever publish a book I will recreate this image for my author's photo on the dust jacket. No contemplative chin in the hand for my tome! Oh, I know there is only one of me, but that is the least of my worries as photoshop can dupe me out as well as maybe minimize my gut over high-waisted gold lamé shorts.

(As Bryan was walking by just now I showed him this pic and told him my plan. Tcch, yeah, right, he said, and kept on walking, so now I totally have to write a book, get it published, feather my hair and find gold boots just to show him up. Oh, also because I want to write a book.)

Any publishers out there? This is golden people. Seriously, *I will do it--let's make this happen.

*Unless, of course, the publisher doesn't want me to. I mean, this isn't a deal-breaker. I can gaze at the camera in academic earnest, too.

Oh no! This IS a deal breaker! If this isn't your author's photo I'm not reading it.

I wish I knew a publisher... you deserve to have a book published. Also, November just happens to be... national novel writing month. www.nanowrimo.org/. Thirty days and nights of literary abandon.
how's about that? You're only 10 days behind... but I'm guessing you can crank out 10 days worth of work in one.

do you know about blurb.com? you can write and publish your very own book. Dust Jacket here you come!

How 'bout taking it one step further: get the photographer from Real Housewives of Atlanta to do your Alter Ego shots and have them be the butt bookends.. Too much?

cassandra @ coco+kelley said...

girl, this could be the COVER of your book! and then you can make little miniature gold casts of yourself to sell as bookends to your book! i like where this is going...

I have to agree w/ Cassandra. Book ends could lead into a whole line of odd home decor items. This idea is going places!

Take it a step further and rock the look with over-the-knee boots!

I like the Alter Ego Idea that Sparkie had...I think a stripper pole is needed. You don't even need a book with words in it...just publish a journal with you on the dust jacket. I'd buy it.
