Happy Release Day, Mia, Bronwyn, Brynn, and Dakota! (Dakota? Don’t read the rest of this post, ‘k? Um, no reason. Really.)
In Part 4, I mentioned that we would see Open Black Jacket Guy again. That, kids, is what’s known as heavy-handed foreshadowing. Don’t try it home, ok? SoC accepts no responsibility if you do.
To refresh our memories, here’s Open Black Jacket Guy (OBJG), hanging out with his pal, Slouching Guy. Both have been growing their hair, to ill effect.
Fortunately, OBJG came to his senses, got his hair cut, and ditched Slouching Guy. However, he couldn’t give up on those long-haired boys just yet.
But the emo finally got to him, so he moved on.
Then it turned out that the brooding emo bit wasn’t tied to hair length.
Woe! Woe! Woe! Poor OBJG. He kept trying…
…and trying, but even the most promising turned out to have some fatal flaw (that demonic possession was just the worst), so he decided maybe he’d had enough of the boys.
And that he needed to spend a little time on his own, forgetting.
That was boring, so he got a cat, but there were… complications.
So he ditched the cat, but…
…the girls, they were just as much trouble as the moody boys.
And combining the girls and the moody boys?! Bad, bad idea.
Then in a freak karaoke tattooing accident, his head and body got sort of distorted and cropped; thereafter, everything was a-ok with him.
The end. Until I find a bunch more covers of him. 😉

I am so sick of seeing his nipple now, lol.

Is that Chaos? What’s he doing on the cover of a book?
Cats always complicate things. I figured Chaos would have tipped that bookcase over by now.
She’ll forgive you… she just needs some encouragement (catnip, sparkly mouse, a sardine…)
.-= lisaÂ´s last blog ..yes there has been some knitting =-.
Wow, you’d think he’d be intrigued by the black kitty on the cover of that book… 😀
.-= BrigitteÂ´s last blog ..Well Hello There! =-.
What’s frightening is that I’ve read quite a few of those books he was on with pretty boys. LOL
Crossed Arm Guy is on a ZA Maxfield book as well.

“But the emo finally got to him, so he moved on.”
i’m waiting for the cover with mustard man on it
.-= furiousballÂ´s last blog ..challenge =-.
Wow. Are you sure that the two guys on the first cover aren’t the same (one sans jacket, of course)? Also, the second guy on Flame has the most horrendous Photoshop (I hope it is Photoshop) hair.

I love these posts! You do a great job with the narrative…
And I don’t know why, but OBJG in the first book reminded me of Nicolas Cage and so that followed thru all the iterations…Ack!
.-= wrenÂ´s last blog ..Ice Festival =-.
Have you notice how limited his wardrobe is…
They could have had him stand in another position as the least…
Dont you worry – we will get him yet… we will get him..

Oh the story line you have created has me rolfmbo!!! Poor thing just needs to give up!
Still not forgiving Mommie huh Chaos?? It is okay.. Just go dig in Mommies secret spot… I think they are some more sparkly gifts there for you she is hiding!!!! **Do I hear Mission Impossible Theme Song** Mayhem has your back… just be sneaky about it!!! And yea… it is okay to climb up there to knock that fake cat on his butt, lmbo!!!!
Have a great day Chris!!!!! =)
Ditto on the over done nipple! It is kinda like looking at the same word over and over again. It doesn’t look right after a while… his nipple soooo doesn’t look right by the end!
(Don’t mind me, I’ve had wayyy tooo much coffeeee)
.-= MirandaÂ´s last blog ..Contest Bar =-.
I think you might have a series to write 😉
Poor OBJ Guy he can’t seem to get a break.
You sure know how to shake up a kitties world.
.-= margeneÂ´s last blog ..Year of Socks =-.
LOL. Like I wasn’t going to read the post after that little warning.
Wow, my Jamie sure does get around.
I’ve been following his quest for love on several book covers. Poor guy, maybe if he changed his clothes at some point he might get lucky.
Is your kitty a cover model now? lol
.-= LilyÂ´s last blog ..Gone too soon… Happy Birthday, Janis Joplin =-.
Your Misadventures in Stock Photography series is cracking me up. What a bunch of cheesie covers. The weird branching phallus-cactus in the third photo! The freak karaoke-tattooing incident!
.-= kmkatÂ´s last blog ..Happy. =-.
I think Chaos wants a job as the BKG cover model (Big Kitty Guy).
.-= Cheryl S.Â´s last blog ..Cables, cables, and more cables =-.
Hilarious! I think he should have just stuck with the cat and ditched the boys and girls. He must be a favorite customer at his local body waxing salon.
.-= BrendaÂ´s last blog ..Two WIPs: Only One Requires a Brain =-.
So – how do you find all these book covers? It’s no wonder you don’t have time to knit!
.-= jannaÂ´s last blog ..Not knitting =-.
Give new meaning to the phrase “cover whore” 🙂
.-= Fiction VixenÂ´s last blog ..Review: Crux by Moira Rogers =-.
Those long-haired emo guys… nothing but trouble.
I agree with Brenda that this guy must keep his waxing salon very busy!

There’s nothing left to say…

Alas, poor Chaos. Black kitty interlopers are *so* not the done thing these days.
.-= NicoleÂ´s last blog ..Readers and Piracy =-.
It seems no matter what pose he is in, it’s set to maximize showing off his abs or he just has bad posture. 😉

Hmmm wonder if he is on istockphoto
.-= mrspaoÂ´s last blog ..Library Pictures: Wreaths =-.
Is it wrong of me to hope you’ll find more covers with him soon? 😀
He’s our very own poster boy for ‘unlucky in love’. 😉
.-= KrisÂ´s last blog ..encounters with my baby brother: 2 =-.
He just keeps poppin up all over the show! The top cover? O-o that hair is just criminal. heh.
.-= SarahÂ´s last blog ..Stuff. =-.
OMG Pure genius. ROFLMAO
every time i read those titles, i keep thinking it’s sock photography… and then there is no knitting… 🙁
.-= ikistiÂ´s last blog ..New Year, new direction =-.
The photo shopped hair is just…icky. That last distorted one was…I don’t know…whose job is it to say that cover was OK? I’m picturing that conversation – I’m sure there were multiple people involved. The Art Director, the Editor, the Author, the Agent..who persuaded who(m)?
You know I’m really enjoying your Misadventures in Stock Photography series.
Is that other guy on the Flame cover a cartoon character? He doesn’t look quite real enough.
.-= SydneyÂ´s last blog ..Snow Days =-.
OMG! LOL Poor OBJG! Clearly he had all that work done at the end because he got low self esteem from the string of bad relationships.

Oh my gosh! That’s so funny!
