Glamorous, oh the flossy flossy

Let's face it, we aren't like Hollywood types who spend the better half of each day with a personal trainer, a favorite nip/tuck expert, or any other professional who make us look like movie stars. Therefore, we probably shouldn't be trying too hard to look like movie stars. Authors are ordinary folks like you and me, too, as the following publicity photos suggest.

Janet "Nora Roberts had reduced me into living in a trailer home, that bitch!" Dailey:

Danielle "I have sold 530 million copies of my books but for some reason I can't find a good PR person to stop me from taking photos like this one" Steele:

You can see more authors in their finest glory here. Warning: it's a pretty insulting essay about the romance genre.

...and I'll say what I said before about that Danielle Steel photo, it looks like she's expecting someone to throw her overboard and she'll need to use those sleeves to stay afloat.

Hmm... I think they had good color photography in the 80s. Bad perms, but good photography....
