HELP! Which Picture Do I Choose?

Word Alive, my publisher, is doing an "About the Author" page. They need a picture of me to go with the description. I would appreciate advice. Which picture should I choose and why?


1) peaking over Bible, just eyes
2) eyes and nose peaking over Bible
3) blue shirt and daisies

4) brick wall, holding book open


5) brick wall, blue shirt, holding book open, most of me except feet
6)brick wall, blue shirt, lots of books

7) yellow shirt, brick wall, lots of books
8) yellow shirt, brick wall, no books

9) yellow shirt, reading book in front of daisies
10) blue shirt, holding Bible on heart
11) yellow shirt, in front of daisies
12) I don't know, figure it out yourself

Hi Marion,
I love #8. You look the most casual and real.....you look comfortable.....like you are!

Hi Mrs. Den Boer, I really like #10. I really think you look great in the blue shirt and overall I think its a really nice picture of you. So thats my choice :)

Thanks Bette and Stephanie (and all the people that had opinions on facebook). Number 10 is my personal favourite too Stephanie (only a Bible can bring out that kind of smile), but the picture is going to be quite small, so people won't know it's a Bible I'm holding and will simply wonder why I'm not holding my own book.
