Author Photo Awesomeness

by thiszine

So I’ve recently become obsessed with checking out author photos in books. Before I read the jacket flap description and endorsements, I find I usually turn to the back flap or the back cover for some author intrigue. What does the author look like? What does s/he write for accomplishments and interests?


In the course of checking out author photos, I’ve found some that really need to be shared with a broader audience. So whenever the mood strikes us we’ll publish some Author Photo Awesomeness, also known as author photos that must be shared.

The first is the full back cover photo of Gigi Levangie Grazer, both an author and a Hollywood insider (as if you can’t tell the latter by simply looking at her photo). This is, by far, the most un-author like photo I’ve ever seen. It looks like she’s been ripped from the pages of InStyle. Gigi’s most recent book is Queen Takes King, a book I will never, ever read but that has a market in the chic-lit set of readers out there (and more power to them!).
