While I guess I’ve realized it but looking at my past book covers, tells me what my typical girl looks like. I do all my own covers and am not sure if I really appreciated how my preferences show through, but reviewing my typical cover says a lot about me.
When I design a cover for one of the stories I’ve written, I like for them to be simple yet get the point across. My covers all have beautiful women on them, and the vast majority look like my wife.
Foxy is tall and lanky with dark brown hair and brown eyes. Her naturally curly hair is styled in what is known as a Diva cut. Most hairstyles are cut wet, but a Diva cut is done with the hair dry so the stylist can see how it hangs. Interestingly, there are only one or two stylists certified to do a Diva cut in Las Vegas.
I call her my 80’s porn star as she looks like a girl straight out of 1980’s porn movies, such as Kimberly Carson. As a multi-generation Texan, we all love girls with big hair, and sometimes they have problems fitting through a door.
One of my first stories, Fantasy Swingers and Fantasy Swingers 2, featured a model who is so close to my wife and her wide in your face stance is so like her. The hair is close, but the legs are so long and the skirt so short.
My Wife is a Porn Star, features a girl with long, dark curly hair and small boobs that is fairly close. The girl looks too innocent to be Wifey but fairly close. I thought it was an appropriate picture as Foxy used to be a model.
Crashing the Swinger’s Pajama Party seems to have a reasonably close girl. Slim with shoulder-length dark hair, except she’s wearing a bra, which I don’t think my wife owns.
The Watchers are two virtually clones of Foxy, less the bra (damn you Amazon). Dark curly big hair that I love to wrap my fingers in.
Driving the Stripper Mobile seems to be relatively close. The girl is a dancer (stripper) with a slender body and leg warmers.
House Party is so close to my sweet wife. While the hair is not exactly right, it’s close, and in that tousled style she likes. The model is wearing a minimal top with nice side boob and is about the right size. Foxy is a little more pointed, but all in all, the look is quite close.
I Saw Mommy Sucking Santa Claus is another very close one. Dark curly hair, slim build, and nice hips.
Nina, the Fallen Ballerina is one of my favorites. The model has the same look as Foxy with dark curly hair and sensuous eyes. Of course it doesn’t hurt that another brunette is nibbling on her ear.
Seduced by the Dark Side is one of my favorites. The girl is wearing a cutoff wife-beater t-shirt with her nipples showing. The facial expression is not quite right; seems to be a little sluttier. Long hair but not very curly. I’ve always loved that cover.
Stripper or Nurse? Is another one of my favorites. Florence Nightingale in a see through lace mini-dress or top with nice long legs and long hair.
The Dancer is another fairly good one except for the damn bras! Of course the girl is on her knees, where I like my wife to be. LOL Wearing thigh highs instead of hose and garters is also a plus.
The Voyeur is pretty good with two models, a brunette and a blonde. Both with long curly hair and reminds me of Foxy and her girlfriend Pam. That’s always trouble in the making.
Walk on the Wild Side one of my latest stories with a kinky-haired brunette being seduced by a blonde. While that’s pretty true to life, my wife never looked that innocent.
I’ve published over 30 novels and novellas to date, and thirteen featured a girl who could be closely related to my wife. So I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. What do you think?
