Melinda Tipton MartinI work with authors who speak at conferences or have a very solid online presence, so headshots on the back are suggested, but they don't all choose to do this. You can see in my book cover portfolio that I prefer a specific placement for photo and bio. melindamartin.me/portfolio/book-cover-portfolio-2/

Susan K. StewartA headshot personalizes you, the author. Readers want to know the writer. A photo does that. That said, be sure it's a good professional photo .... no snapshots at the beach.

Laura BushI recommend it for all my authors. And that professional photo gets put on the back inside sales pages, too. It's an important part of your book branding and marketing.
