New photos from a masterful photographer

My friend Carl Costas ( has made some terrific photos of me for use in promoting Write Hard, Die Free.

Here are three I’ve picked for various uses. Comments, as always, welcomed.

This one will probably be used for general distribution.

I like this one with the iPad and books together
as a visual testament to symmetry.

This one offers some variety.
