Thanks for raising this. Here's mine:
My historical novel, THE SISTER QUEENS (the tale of sisters Marguerite & Eleanor of Provence who became queens of France & England respectively) releases 3/2012
Pretty all business. Perhaps too much so.
Lit, I like how you have what your book is about, however having your bio all about your book and not you *might* make folks fear that you are going to be all about your book? Maybe. Is there a way to squeeze info about yourself in there? I was telling my grandma (avid reader) about your book and when she heard it was a historical she was all like, "They never get the facts right." But when I told her you were a former lawyer she was like, "Oh, then she knows how to research. Okay." So maybe you could sneak that in there? Like: "Former lawyer turned historical writer. My passion lies in queens such as in my THE SISTER QUEENS..." or something.
I know you can do better than I can with that, but that kind of shows what I mean.
I'm @thetillmonkey and here's mine:
My till monkeying days are behind me now, so I write for my supper and read for my insomnia. Now stop looking at my giant hand.
Sounds random but my profile pic kind of draws attention to, well, my man-sized hands.
Goofy! If you've got your giant hands in your pic, then perfect.
As an aside... my blog doesn't really have a name. I was thinking of calling it something like PB & J. (Peanut Butter and Jean. Or Peanut Butter and Jam (J
) ) And then making my bio say I will write for PB&J.
