    Author Pictures

    Should the picture of yourself you choose to put in your book, represent the mood of the story?

    I personally think it should represent the persona of the author. But that's just my opinion. I suggest you go to Amazon and look at the back covers via look inside of some of the popular traditionally published authors and you can get a sense of what kind of direction they are getting from their publishers.

    I don't think it has to at all. Like TKent said, it's more a reflection of the author themselves.

    I write non-fiction, so my thought is that the author pic on the back cover should look simple and professional. For other genres, I have no opinion/preference.

    I think it should be taken from your best side...

    I'm with TKent on this one. It seems like great advice.
