It's Book Business Friday. Part of being an author or illustrator is becoming known and staying known. Self-promotion, of course. Here's something kind of interesting to be found in the School Library Journal under the heading "Your Photos." Perhaps if you're doing some event (especially at a school) that makes a good photo op, you might send a picture to them. The guidelines are here. Check out the magazine's homepage here to see how it works in situ (scroll down to nearly the bottom of the page--that's where I saw a picture of Caroline Arnold at the San Diego Zoo, doing a book signing, when I looked. Maybe there will be a different picture there when you check it out.) Every little bit of promotion helps people know about you and your books!
