"You know what? The bastard blows me out of the water. This guy writes Maine like Ardai writes New York. If you're not reading him, you don't know what you're missing." --Chris F. Holm, author of The Big Reap, The Wrong Goodbye and Dead Harvest.

"Bagley's got the poet's eye, but that doesn't mean everything is prettier in his work. It means the ugly stuff is more vivid. More intense. Like a sudden switch from analog to HD. And that's a trait to very much admire in his work." --Anthony Neil Smith, author of Hogdoggin', Yellow Medicine, The Drummer and Psychosomatic.

New Author Photo

I’m not the most photogenic guy around, but I need a decent author shot. We have a couple of possibilities. Thought I’d run them by you. Here’s the first. What do you think?

I think it makes you look too much like a character from a BBC sit-com.

Gee, and I thought Cary Grant had passed away.

Patrick Shawn Bagley said...

Yeah, too urbane. I don't want to come across as elitist.

Aw, noice.

I wouldn't waste that one on an author shot. That pic just screams "Romance Novel Cover Boy" to me. Move over Fabio, there's a new stud-muffin on the block.

Hope you don't mind I borrowed your author photo for my "people reading" feature.
