So I just found out yesterday that the cover I just finished for Lauralynn Elliott’s Loving the Dead and the UnDead is the 3000th (that’s right there are 3 zeroes there) that cover model Jimmy Thomas is on.
I am beyond excited. I mean besides that the man is the best eye-candy I’ve ever had the pleasure to look at. **drooling here** (where’s my drool cloth…heehee) He is also the sweetest guy out there in the romance novel community. He informed me that the cover I just did was his 3000th and that he was going to plaster it everywhere! So now it’s on his Facebook page and his website that he has setup RomanceNovelCenter.com so thousands of people are now seeing MY cover!
I’ve already had another person interested in me doing a cover for them based on him posting the cover so this looks like it might help me win over some new clients! I also hope that it will boost the sales of Lauralynn’s books as well. How cool is that!
Who knows maybe I have a chance yet of this becoming my full time job. Although like they say if you love what you do then it’s not really a “job” is it? 😉
Ok going to go do some more happy dancing! WooHoo!!!!

I am so glad you are getting some recognition out there. Hope it brings you and Lauralynn much success. Love the work you have done for me and look forward to many more books in the future. Lot’s of changes are in store and I hope to be cranking out some new stuff soon. I am about over 2011!

Thanks so much, Jon! I look forward to working on some more of your books as well. Good luck on all your changes going on.

I never did properly congratulate you on marking Jimmy’s 3000th cover! What a great adventure. For some reason, I can only see this post, but not newer ones. ?? anyway…I wanted to stop by! :}

Thanks so much, Nadja! It has been an adventure and Jimmy has been so great about posting it everywhere. I’ve had at least 3 people contact me about doing covers for them since he has posted it. So exciting!
As far as you not seeing other posts? Did you say newer ones? That would make sense since I’ve not posted anything since this post (I’m not a very good blogger…heehee). I checked to be sure you were all approved and such so who knows. Computers…bleh!
