What can I say about Jimmy Thomas? Le sigh…there’s quite a bit actually. He’s one of the hardest working male cover models I’ve ever had the pleasure of groping, er…meeting in person. He’s graced two of my books and 2,936 others (according to his Facebook bio). He’s has an extensive resume that includes TV, film, commercials and music videos. He’s a certified personal trainer involved in  martial arts and kickboxing. He is also a web designer and architect. See what I mean? Hard working!

I was able to pin him down long enough to have a few questions answered last June. Here is what Jimmy had to share with us:

(This interview was originally posted on June 15, 2011)

If you even have time (just reading your bio wore me out!) do you ever read the books you’re featured on? If not, do you prefer another genre, or read for fun at all?
I rarely have time to do anything other than work, so unfortunately, I haven’t read any of the books I’m on. If I did, I wouldn’t get new images shot and uploaded for all to use on their covers 😉

Your site romancenovelcovers.com is phenomenal and unlike anything I’ve ever seen. What made you decide to market yourself in this way?

Thanks 🙂 I’ve been modeling for 13 years and have always shot “couples” images of romance, sensual and erotica, and I knew the romance industry needed a place to go to get exactly that, without extensive searching on random stock image websites that didn’t have much of what they wanted/needed. And I’ve always been one to come up with marketing, network and advertising ideas that work well 😉

I’ve browsed the covers on your site and you seem to have every sub-genre of romance there. Historical, sensual, steamy, paranormal and even you in a kilt! (sigh) Do you have a favorite pose or type of cover? If so, why is it your favorite?

Not really. I love any style/genre, as long as I produce great images that I love within any genre during a shoot, I’m happy 🙂 Of course those where I’m holding a half naked/naked beautiful woman doesn’t hurt 😉

Since this interview Jimmy has changed his site a bit to be more encompassing for the Romance community. It’s now a place for authors to meet and network. If you have any interest at all in the world of Romance literature, I highly recommend you visit!

Resignation Available Today!!!

It’s here!! Today is the re-release day of my erotic novella, Resignation. Sol and Darina’s story has a special place in my heart because it was the first erotic novella I ever had published. It’s been re-edited with a couple new scenes that give more insight into the characters. And once again I have the delectable Jimmy Thomas on my cover. I hope ya’ll like it!

BLURB:

Desperate times call for desperate measures, and Lynn Graves has already cut her expenses to the bone. When an ad for a modeling job is brought to her attention, she simply can’t refuse the quick money. But once she meets the sexy photographer, it doesn’t seem so simple anymore.

Weston Myers is in a bind. Short on time, he’s looking for the perfect body since the face won’t matter. Now that he’s met Lynn, no one else will do, but breaking down her inhibitions will take patience. And when she gets under his skin, he’s desperate to have her luscious body under him… But he doesn’t have long to ready his artistic photo exhibit and convince Lynn she belongs in his bed. Hopefully in the end, she won’t be afraid of a few erotic images.

It’s My Birthday!!

Today is my thirty-sixth birthday! And it’s even more special because it’s also the release day of my sixth e-book! Erotic Images is my newest erotic novella from Ellora’s Cave Publishing, and they gave me a real treat this time by putting the delectable Jimmy Thomas on my cover. He is easily one of the most recognizable faces in the Romance world, as well as a super nice and all-around cool guy. Not only is he making my new book look great, he was also gracious enough to answer a few question for me to post on this special day. So here it is, my mini-interview of Romance cover model Jimmy Thomas:

Missy: If you even have time (just reading your bio wore me out!) do you ever read the books you’re featured on? If not, do you prefer another genre, or read for fun at all?

Jimmy: I rarely have time to do anything other than work, so unfortunately, I haven’t read any of the books I’m on. If I did, I wouldn’t get new images shot and uploaded for all to use on their covers 😉

Another Fabulous Cover!

I have to be one of the luckiest authors in existence! Not only have ALL of my book covers to date been beautiful, but this time I got Jimmy Thomas! If you’re not familiar with his face maybe you’ve been too distracted by his body. He’s been on over thirteen-hundred romance novel covers and now he’s on mine too 😀

I’m currently in edits for this book but as soon as I know the release date I’ll post it here.
