More Acrobat fun

So the lovely Chris at Stumbling Over Chaos is running another contest for a book of mine, this time for Acrobat. The blurb is up and the excerpt so that will give you an idea of what it is about and these pictures will give you an idea of my men. Have you noticed that sometimes it's not the exact face, but a smile or a look or just the smile or look in a particular photo? Like the black and white one of David Gandy here. No, Dreo doesn't look like him in my head, but the sort of vulnerable look there, that's all Dreo. And Nate doesn't look like Eric Dane, but the smile and the laugh lines, that's Nate.

Nate is 45 and blonde with a beard and mustache, very much the dashing English professor. Dreo is 28 and tall and dark and dangerous and sexy.  You get the idea. Sometimes I really wish I could draw. I think that's why hand drawn covers are fantastic, they give the reader some insight into the vision of the writer. How awesome is that?

    1. I so wish that blogger would do what I want! It would have been cool to get them, the pictures, how I wanted...but see, you understand my psychosis anyway. :D Please pop back and let me know what you think after you read it okay? And I will listen to the constructive criticism, I'm good that way I swear.
