Books used to have more awesome author photos than they do now.
One of my professors in college reportedly had her author photo rejected for a book she was publishing because, the publisher said, “This is an author photo, not a glam shot.”
When I read this on my iPhone I got this memorable auto-generated “related post”: http://gliterati.wordpress.com/2009/05/12/am-i-alone-in-hating-author-photos-in-the-back-of-the-book/
Who was the professor whose author photo was too glamorous? and was it for an academic (nonfiction) book?
