Creating an Author Portrait that Increases Book Engagement

May 15 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

It would be nice if a book description alone influenced people to take a book home. The truth is, humans are very visual beings, and although one may not even realize it, a lot of decision-making on selecting a book, or deciding to purchase it, comes from the book’s cover design and author portrait.

On Sunday, May 15, at 2:30 p.m. Adrienne Fletcher, owner and head photographer of Adrienne Fletcher Photography, will discuss (1) why planning an author headshot with intention is important, and (2) the top things to consider when doing so. These include aspects such as book topic, author persona, ideal reader, image background, what to wear, and body language. Adrienne will do a deep dive into exactly what to consider for each step of the process so that creating a headshot that adds value to a book cover feels less stressful, less uncomfortable, and more intentional. This meeting, sponsored by Writers Alliance of Gainesville (WAG), is free and open to anyone interested in the written word.

An in-person meeting is held at Millhopper Library, Meeting Room A, 3145 NW 43rd St., Gainesville, 32606.
The meeting is held from 2:30 PM to 4 PM.
