Be yourself. For my book, "Painless Windows" (a user's guide to SAS
Software for the PC, 2nd edition) - I wore a blouse and my Australian
"cowboy hat". For the 3rd edition, they didn't allow the hat, but I pretty
much wore the same shirt.

Hey - "professional" attire isn't all it's cracked up to be. I've been in
this profession for 25+ years, and I can write (or edit) in PJs or a
business suit. The clothes don't make the editor.

I have to get a portrait taken for a book credit for a book I'm working on.
I'm not sure why they want to spotlight the copyeditor - I'm not the one
putting together the package, I'll just be making sure the contributions are
consistent to format and have no egregious proofreading errors (I'm not the
greatest proofreader in the world).

I assume business attire. What I've got is a black interviewing suit, and I
imagine a white blouse is most appropriate and will reproduce better? or
should I go with something softer for a blouse? I've got a pink blouse with
grey pinstripes oxford that I've worn with the black suit on interviews,
because I didn't want to look too stark.

I don't usually wear makeup or jewelry; should I wear some for the
photograph? Scarf?


advice? I'm clutching here.

 
Regards,
Becca
