The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Giving Aimee a face

Costumes

Now that I've let the cat out of the bag about my alter-ego, the time seemed ripe to add an author photo to Aimee's various bios. The trouble is...all of my photos look like homesteader-Anna rather than writer-Aimee. What to do?

Wig arrangement

Kayla came through with costumes, makeup, and even an enthusiastic niece to make the day even more fun. Add in Mark and his artistic eye and we soon had more photos than we knew what to do with.

Bio images

Time to narrow them down and give my alterego a face! I hope you'll drop by Aimee's facebook page and vote for your favorite.

Could you ask the designer of your book covers to make you a suitable portrait?

You are a fantasy author? That's so cool! E-books, right? Is it fun? Does it help pay the bills?

That's exciting to me, as I'm homesteading but came down with MS and can't work at the outside job that was paying the bills. Not sure I have the talent, but maybe I'll give it a try. Thank you for the inspiration!

P.S. I still recognize you despite the costume – it might be fun to run the pics through Waterlogue, an $4 app that makes gorgeous watercolor effects from photos. It might just be the right otherworldly touch. Or it might be a dumb idea. :)
