Many thanks to Sydney, who tracked down the original stock photo of our friend Candy Cane Guy from yesterday! To sum up, the jeans did have holes and there’s no mole or tattoo being covered. 🙂
Onward. Allow me to present Slouching Guy. You might remember him from such covers as Islands by Samantha Kane…
…Reckless Passion by Amanda Young…
…Lone Wolf (Maxey Wizards, Book 2)…
…and Horsefall: Taste Test by Jade Buchanan.
Is anyone else alarmed about the lusty look in that horse’s eyes?! 😮
So, do you have additional examples of Slouching Guy out and about?
12/9/2009: I found another cover example of our old friend Slouching Guy! Sorry the picture is blurry, but that’s what happens when you expand a teeny tiny picture to make it a bit more visible…
Stop by my contest post or The Thrillionth Page by 10 am CST, December 6, to vote for the Softest Kitteh Evah on Our Street! Again, there’s been more taunting! But I thought this looked promising:

Haha oh that look in the horses eye, oh my.
And now his pose annoys me
I find that whole cover, the one with slouching guy and the horse, to be alarming.
Except for the abs.
That slouchy guy had one picture taken and now it’s everywhere. What a gig. I’d love a copy of Mayhem’s book.
Oh Mayhem, are you signing copies?!!
Slouchy guy, you look like you’d probably know about 20 words. Oh, that’s not nice. Who cares how many words you know. 😉
LOL about the horse Chris.
I love the built of this boy, but he is so sexy but overused… at one point he was like the next Nathan Kamp for me…
Even with the headless shot I knew it was him… I will be checking out that book with the lusty horse… hmmmm sounds promising…
Now I have just about seen it all – Mayhem has a front page spread… give me a ever loving break…
And she has taken time from her busy schedule… OH for the love of ..**///*****?//
***throws had in the air****
And she is sticking to that story is she… ****
To think, I knew Mayhem when she was nothing but a wee little kitty. They grow up fast.
I can see why the heads are cut off these sexy built guys…and yesterdays had a belly button that draws my eye instantly and distracts me from the good stuff.
I like it that he appears to be very open minded in his preferences…..
Must be all of those pec muscles pulling his spine out of alignment or something…Didn’t Popeye have similar musculature deformity issues? ;o)
LOL! Mayhem is getting international coverage for softness!! Oh noesss!
Okay, that horse thing is hilarious. He’s thinkin’ about it. Thinkin’ logistics
Which are we eating, the hunk or the horse?
I like our friend from yesterday better without seeing his (very young) face!
Purr purrrrr… soffft cuddlie May….
Too bad the guy in the slouchy photo looks like he has worked his abs to the point where he cannot stand up straight any more… ick not pretty
Slouchy guy looks best without his face showing.
Great mag cover for Mayhem! I think Oblio is running scared what with all the raw eggs and venison eating.
Meh. Slouchy Guy just doesn’t do it for me. (Is it the slouch? The facial expression? We may never know…)
And I’m still waiting for the sock phorography.
My brain is just having a problem with the title Taste Test. I mean, is he tasting the horse, is the horse tasting him?
I’ve definitely seen tastier cover art.
Slouchy guy reminds me of one of the WWE wrestling guys.. looks much better without a head.
Thanks for the mention! That “Horsefall: Taste Test” cover is just wrong is so many ways, well except for the abs. 🙂 Which one is doing the tasting and, dare I ask, what are they tasting?
Love the “Soft Kittehs” book cover!
Do you think slouchy guy gets a royalty for every cover he’s on? I bet not…
Am I the only one who finds it disturbing that the fellow in the original stock photo from yesterday’s post looks TWELVE????
Am I the only one who noticed “Horsefall” is possibly misspelled? And, ew, taste-testing what?
That last pic just makes me feel a queasy. Oh yuck. oh it will take a while to expunge that image from my brain…
Yep. The horse is worrisome.
I see Mayhem is living up to her diva reputation…
Love Mayhem’s book cover. Too cute!!
LMAO about the slouching cover model and the lusty horse. I have noticed that one on varies books.
The ISBN number is a nice touch!
ROTFL @ Is anyone else alarmed about the lusty look in that horseâ€™s eyes?!
May does look like the softest kitteh ever ^_^
Did his mother never tell him to stand up straight??? And sorry, but my Mittens is the softest kitteh ever.
Hehe – what fun!
