D’oh! I published this early by accident… Whoops!
Congrats to Jen B and Beth, who each won a copy of Bulletproof (A Matter of Time #3 or #5, depending) by Mary Calmes! Bulletproof will be released today by Dreamspinner Press.
Welcome to another edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography! Today weâ€™ll be meeting Curly Blond Bangs Guy (CBBG). If you were worried about how much sense last week’s Misadventure made, rest assured that’s not the case this week. 🙂 And keep an eye out for Candy Cane Guy!
to power, what was left beyond
a dream he hated to give up, even for
. But would being in
I’m pretty sure that was the most challenging set of titles I’ve yet encountered.

and yet you wrestled them into submission. 🙂
Yikes, poor curly blond bangs guy seriously needs a better agent. That is a pretty awful collection of covers! Seriously most of them look like I could have done them! I mean, that Lessons in Love cover!? I love love the one where is his hair is dyed such a realistic shade of red. And in Touch Like Breathing how there is absolutely no effort to make it look like the two guys are even in the same picture! (recognize the second guy as cam or noah from diving in deep).
So much fun!

Interstitial? Really? I so envy people with curly hair.

Curly boy looks too young and boring

Those were some weird and wacky titles (especially Life After Math) but you did your usual brilliant job! 😀
A recent post from Val Kovalin..I have gorgeous new cover art
And yet more glowing examples of why I always go for the DRAWN cover art. At least it won’t show up on 10 other covers…lol
IÂ´m always suprised by the amount of pics you put together with the same boys, but I guess some of them end everywhere 🙂
Love the dye job on Artie, the Good Witch. LOL
Is that Candy Cane Guy on After Anna? Looks kinda like him, but since his abs aren’t showing, I can’t verify the freakishly round belly button.

ooooohhh… lisa’s lessons! hahahaha Poor Mayhem…

Tricky set of titles there. LOL. You did it, though!
A recent post from Harper Bell..Sunday Shortie – "Moonlight Becomes You: Aftermath"
LOL! Those are some odd titles but you managed to make sense of them – Interstitial, Love After Math (Maybe a play on Love Aftermath?), Touch Like Breathing. I know I’ve said it before but why do cover artists feel compelled to mess with the hair. It almost never works out.
Well done! Those were some tough titles! And Curly Blond Bangs Guy looks like he has had a perm… 0_0
May – if you don’t come out what about dinner?

That was definitely a tough set of titles. With words that wouldn’t generally be used in everyday speech, too. Bravo!

What, the salon thought he said, “I want to look like Carrot Top?!”

Ya think? o_O
At least Love After Math wasn’t Love After Meth, which is how I first read it, pre-second cup of coffee. 😀
A recent post from K. Z. Snow..Do I need to tell you who did this cover?
Horrible covers, odd titles but interesting story
Aww, please show us your pretty face Mayhem 😀
This one has so much comment fodder, where to start?… Life After Math? Most of these poor guys worry more about a career after Photoshop – especially after winding up looking like Ronald McDonald… Kudos on squeezing in a double-title!… I love how the other guy on Love By The Numbers is subtly giving the “You’re #1” sign that I often see drivers giving to other drivers who’ve cut them off… Why don’t they ever put the model’s phone numbers on the covers? There are a couple up there that I’d call… Unless they were 900 #s… I’ve hurt you enough, I’m leaving now.
Mayhem, I want you to know my mother would not approve of their horrible posture, which makes their “manly pecs” look more like breasts. SHE would have them standing up straight (with shirts on) in a hurry, I don’t care how often they go to the gym.
Interstitial? Life After Math? Are these the same people who name lipstick colors?
A recent post from Marji..wip wednesday
You did well considering the material! I had to look up interstitial, as I knew it as a medical/scientific term. Turns out I was pretty much right. Hoping NOT to see mucosal in a title next week.

Interstitial? In a book title!?! I hope there is room in that shoe box for me!!
A recent post from mrspao..Making Monday: Shop Edition
Do you remember the TV show The Great American Hero from the early 80s? CBBG totally reminds me of him!
A recent post from Patti (FAB Romance)..Review: Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
Okay, this really was challenging… Interstitial, Sex, Lies and Edelweiss and Math. Somehow I think Randy must have got bored with his current job – I see signs of his presence here…lol!
OMG, that story you have put together!! lol. I think you have officially gone insane, and it is all curly blond guy’s fault!!
Gosh, while some of the titles are just hideous, did they really think that a simple color swap would be good enough to turn him into a realistic looking red head? I mean, even my dye jobs (which in the past have involved both Manic Panic and Special Effects) have looked more realistic!
