Last weekend, I got to meet a legend in the romance writing world—Fabio! A few other romance authors/friends and I stood in line for two hours to see the cover model, who is sponsoring a new protein shake. He was very personable, took the time to really connect with his fans, and patiently took photos.
I remember one cover in particular that had me swooning over Fabio so many years ago—The Prince Of Midnight by Laura Kinsale. There were quite a few such covers, however, so meeting him and taking a picture with him holding my own book, Shades of Desire, was awesome.
Fabio is over fifty now, but still quite handsome. He held me against his side while we were taking pictures and I must say, he is still very fit, as well. Maybe those protein shakes really help out!
My Random House editor sent me some concepts for my new Belladonna Agency series. It’s a paranormal romantic suspense and I believe we’re going in quite a sexy direction. I can’t wait to keep you posted!
Anyway, do you remember Fabio? Have a favorite cover model or book cover?
