By the narrowest of margins – I’m talking by one vote – this is the new C. Hoyt Caldwell author photo. And spoiler alert, the new R.W. Ridley author photo may look very similar because I hate taking author photos. I do not want to waste a day doing that again. Now I know why I’ve had the same series of photos for 4 years. The good news is I look 10 years older than I actually am so there’s really no need to take a new photo every year. Soeth endeth the swimsuit competition portion of our publishing pageant. Clearly there were no winners here.
I should mention that “Option Brad Pitt” got the most votes by an enormous margin, but as I am not Brad, and he has a team of attorneys, I’m afraid his photo was not an actual option. I’ll work on my six-pack and do my best Brad Pitt pose for the next photo.
