I know that many writer's drink. I drink but I never hit the sauce before 5:00 pm. In effect, I'm also a good reader but I can't figure out your angst. Please elaborate for those slower contributors to the Forum. Thanks.

Chad,

I did not get involved in the Dill and Timucuan controversy. I like them both.

Things have a way of calming down eventually. Vicky and Timucuan used to be at each other all the time, but now get along.

I think you have published a very good book,

Peace be with you,

Thom

As the only Chad Campbell with a book on KDP, this may explain a lot. I'm assuming Chad is the 15 year old and not the 10 year old, but who knows?

This is the picture Chad Campbell has up on his author central page.

1. You guys do know ceasefire means stop right? 2. That pic is like 6 years old but the only appropriate picture i could find. I am actually like 23 or 24 in that picture. I used to have two pics but the other one was me but it had a glass of beer so i decided to change it.

It was the dolls, the teddy bears, and the dribble on the chin that had me.

If I hadn't given up Chad as a lost cause I would point out that sometimes no picture is better than the wrong picture. And that one ought to allow readers to assume one is a professional if no evidence exists.

Alas as one of the many, many people not as smart as Chad, I know I won't be listened to so I won't offer him my advice.

Well, I'll play devil's advocate. Maybe because the book is MG, the pic is appropriate. I don't know, Chad. I think it's time to get a friend to take A picture of you. Your book looks interesting and has a great cover illustration. Some advice: make your cover text a little larger, and change up your blurb a bit.

Ok, truce.

But please know that you are surrounded by many professional and talented authors in these forums with decades of experience they are graciously willing to share. Instead of picking fights, take this great opportunity to ask for their help and they will gladly share their knowledge with those who appreciate and welcome it.

Just because you arent as smart as me;) doesnt mean i wouldnt listen to you. One of the key attributes of an intelligent person is listening to everyone. So you think the picture of me holding a beer is better? I think this one shows i am very family orientated.

I actually like the idea of a picture of the author that the kids could relate to, but the dribble chin and mom's basement thing he has going on...I dunno.

I think there is bound to be a better one tucked away on his mom's computer somewhere.

Most likely. Chad, get a friend with a good camera, bribe them with food, and have them follow you around the local park for the afternoon. You can do better. As an aside, I might put your book on my longlist (I have no shortlist).
