Welcome to another edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography! Today we’ll be catching up with Candy Cane Guy… again. And maybe I should warn you ahead of time that it’s likely you’ll get whiplash reading this one. :)

Misadventures in Stock Photography: Part the 100th (Back to the Beginning: Candy Cane Guy!)



Congrats to Dianna, who won Winter Warmers by Josephine Myles, JL Merrow, Clare London, Chrissy Munder, and Lou Harper!



When I started the Misadventures back on December 3, 2009, I had no idea it would evolve into a long-running series of quirky, incoherent little stories strung together from book titles. Thanks to all of you for reading and commenting! A special thanks to those of you who’ve sent me covers, too. I’m honored to be part of you never looking at book covers the same way again. ;)

For this, the 100th edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography, I thought we should go back to the very beginning, to the cover that started it and gave Candy Cane Guy his name. :)

Because he was

in his misspent youth, when he worked as a

Congrats to Lea W, who won Impossible to Resist by Em Woods and Keeping House by Lee Brazil!


If you’ve heard anything on the news about tornadoes in Minneapolis, Minnesota, they were in the north part of the city. I’m in the southwest. Here it rained crazily, the tornado sirens went off just in case, and the kitties hid under the couch.



Welcome to another edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography! Today we’ll see what Candy Cane Guy’s been up to recently. Keep an eye out for Shy Guy and Wind in Hair Guy!
