This isn’t a huge secret, I just hadn’t said anything yet. So I’m going to let you all see the cover model for my next book. Some of my friends and “co-horts” already know who it is. But since the book should be out within the next couple of months, I think it’s time to tell everyone. Drum roll, please….

James and Me!

James and Me!

This is James Magnussen, and he’s not only gorgeous, but he’s a genuinely nice guy. Very friendly, but he’s also very professional when it comes to the business end of things. So ladies (or gentlemen), if you need a cover model, and James fits the bill, you can contact him on Facebook at James D Magnussen. Okay, so I’m in the picture, too, but I didn’t have one of him by himself. LOL

So, ladies (and gentlemen?), what do you think? Doesn’t he look like the perfect Fire Wizard??? Cover reveal will come in a few weeks, I hope.

Wow, is it February already? One weather model is predicting a big snow next weekend. The weather that comes toward us often passes us by, even when it’s predicted. I think it’s because we’re in the valley. I will admit, I would love to see a big snow. Well, we had one last week, but this other one is supposed to be bigger. I’m not holding my breath.

I didn’t get my 5000 words in this week. I made it to 2580. I usually write more on Saturdays than any other day, but yesterday I spent a lot of the day making key chain swag for prizes for my FB book release party. I finally have a tentative date in mind, but I want to make sure I can have everything ready for it before announcing.

There’s been someone I’ve wanted for my cover model for my WIP, Fire Wizard, for a long time, and we’ve finally come to an agreement. He’s agreed to let us do some custom shots, and I’m really excited (even though I won’t be there). Anya is doing the shots for me. This has made me even more motivated to get this book done! 🙂 More about that when the time grows closer. I must make you wait!

According to Jimmy Thomas, the gorgeous cover model on the Libby Fox novellas, the Loving the Dead and the Undead cover (print book soon to be out), is the 3000th time he’s graced the cover of a novel. See his post and comments on his Facebook page. Jimmy Thomas In Fact, he’s actually made this cover his icon for right now. 🙂 My cover artist, Anya, is about to wet her pants go nuts with excitement. Jimmy Thomas is not only gorgeous, he’s smart, funny, and has great business sense. Check out his website, Romance Novel Center and his stock image site, Romance Novel Covers. Many authors, cover artists, editors, reviewers, readers, and more have joined Romance Novel Center. Take a look and see if it’s something you might be interested in. *doing the happy dance*

I’ve been meaning to post about this for awhile, but I just keep forgetting. A few weeks back, Jimmy Thomas launched a new site for authors, cover artists, publishers, editors, readers, etc. to connect on a site dedicated to the romance novel industry. I was one of those who got to try it out ahead of time before its official launch, and I think it’s a great site. Jimmy is a professional with great business sense, and it shows. In other words, he’s not just a pretty face. (Although his face AND body are swoon worthy.) Jimmy has been on my last four covers (the Libby Fox novellas and the Libby Fox trilogy). My cover artist has been using his site Romance Novel Covers for the cover art. His new site is Romance Novel Center. One exciting thing about this site is that he’s eventually going to let us sell our ebooks directly from the site. I CAN’T WAIT for that to happen. Anyway, thank you, Jimmy for developing this site. I love it!

These are all Jimmy
