    And is that your puking girl tee even?

    clearly the ultimate JL photo.

    Yeah, it is. My favouritest T-shirt ever. I love the slightly puzzled expression on people’s faces as they stare it and then the horrified look of comprehension.

    Um, yeah, actually that *is* yr ultimate author photo, as Ms. Bond sez. It’s like, you’re about to say something, but you’re already being over-ridden by your sentient mass of hair. Or something.

    Looks like the fairies got you. Lovely!

  5. Sherwood Smith on #

    That is a gorgeous photo–why not use it on a book jacket? The flying hair looks magical!

  6. John Scalzi on #

    That is so HOT.

  7. David Moles on #

    totally punk rock.

  8. nalo on #

    Wow. Total ooloi hair. That’s so cool.

  9. Roger on #

    Rather fetching, though, I fancy it’s somewhat of a difficult look to maintain.

    Nothing to say about any of the cricket being played here and there on this fine globe of ours?

    That’s incredible! You have to use that as your official photo. Do you think you could get Niki to take my photo?

  11. Justine on #

    Thanks everyone! Glad you were tickled, too. Niki’ll be dead pleased that you all like her photo.

    Ooloi hair, huh, Nalo? I likes it. I’ve always wanted to be like someone out of an Octavia Butler novel. Or maybe not . . . Still, Ooloi hair!

    We’ll see about it being used as an author photo. Maybe for the great Australian mangosteen cricket Elvis fairy book . . .

    Roger: cricket good!

  12. Rachel Brown on #

    That is an awesome photo. You look like Medusa.

    If you’re going to be anyone out of an Octavia Butler novel, the ooloi are among the few characters who pretty much have a good time. Plus they get to have lots of sex.

  14. Justine on #

    Rachel: The secret is out: I am a gorgon!

    Nalo: Plus, as an ooloi I get to mess with other species. And have tentacles! What’s not to love?

    Best. Author. Picture. Ever!

    Heh, can just see you asking Razorbill to put it on your next book jacket.

  16. niki on #

    mmm – yes well we might have to photoshop a better facial expression on you ….but glad everyone enjoys the photo I have much better ones of justine though…hehehehehe

    Barry: Yeah, I can’t really see them sticking that on the flap of the Magic or Madness books, can you? Fortunately my next book will be very silly. So there’s a shot it might get used.

    Niki: What’s wrong with that facial expression? (For the record: after this initial foto she made me move back to the super windy spot and had Scott tickle me in order to produce a facial expression she was happy with. Didn’t work, but. Photographers are evil!)
