John W. MacDonald introduced himself to me at the Ottawa Antiquarian Bookfair last fall. Given our shared insanity over books, notably collecting them, and our passion for capturing author ideas and images…me with microphone, he with camera, we became fast friends.
So John is a friend, yes. And this is a picture of me, yes. But blot that out for a moment, appreciate the form, John’s artistic rendering, and agree with me that he is a real talent. One that publishers and authors should utilize, fully, frequently and frankly.
Oh. And I totally agree with Canadian fiction writer Alison Gresik when she says in her blog ” I am totally getting this guy to do my author photos. His work is stunning.”
My first novel will be published late this year or early 2007. Look for John’s name on the dustjacket.
