Should We Be Offended?

So it turns out the author photo of Renee and me (that casually glam shot that appears in the About the Authors link) appears NOWHERE on or in the book. Of course we both assumed that the photo would be featured rather prominently, say, splashed across the back of the jacket. But after receiving a review copy of the book, we found out that our smiling faces are absent from the back flap and the picture doesn't appear in black and white on the About the Authors page, either.

I find this upsetting for several reasons, but primarily for the idea that our publisher thought the book would sell better without our images. In fact, it causes me to recall those dark and ugly middle school years, when photos of me were like acts of violence, and people would ask if I meant to be making "that face" in my yearbook picture...

Oh Robin, your middle school photos are not that bad. You did the Madonna-look really well. I'm sure if you took a fresh look at them, you would realize that. And you can. I know you THINK you destroyed all copies, but as yearbook editor I held onto the extra special photos. I'll be happy to post them and let your fanbase be the judge. You just say the word!

Oh Linda, your words strike fear in my heart, and a gurgling in my stomach! But if I haven't said this recently enough, please know that my fealty and devotion to you--not to mention my adoration and supreme belief in your inherent goodness--is unending, and whatever it is your heart desires, you just say the word and your dear old pal Robin will track it down, wrap it up and have it winging its way to you in Alaska in the blink of an eye. Really, there's no need to break out those pictures. None-what-so-ever!
