We do not know how an author looks unless a photo is supplied. So toms london offers no photos.
People are getting more subjective, in an
underhanded way, all the time. So leave out photos.

I shall remain relevant.

For 2 months, I have been working on my first book. We are trying to Justify
the columns. Also we did tighten up Format. We also, in the process, manage
to drop lots of garbage. We made our prose far more legible, toned up grammar.
Above all, the action and dialog is now clear.

We reduced number of pages in Book One from 240 to 172. Victory.

Now we are working on Book Two. "Houston In 2084". It is now at 266 pages.
That can go down.

We have made great progress in cosmology. That is better than fiction.

To be relevant, It is best, if you want to be anonymous, to avoid any photos on your covers.
Just good advice.

I probably am affected by some writer's appearance. To keep anonymous, do not send out any photos.

To remain relevant. We like to keep our identity hidden. I decided
to do this following advice given long ago.

To remain relevant. We like to keep our identity hidden. Occult.
Like our old friend in lounge attire. He vanished long ago. No
photos on my covers.
