Michelle Buonfiglio of the online radio broadcast Romance Buy the Book is featuring a two-part interview with a right studly individual, Nathan Kamp, romance cover model. Part one went up May 9; part two appears next week.
Mr. Kamp and his ‘licious pecs have been featured on many a fine cover, including the Hot Spell Anthology and Teresa Medeiros’ new novel, The Vampire Who Loved Me.
Seems Mr. Kamp is somewhat bashful about his cover modeling, and likes best that his career gives him the wherewithal and freedom to do the things that he really wants to do, a work attitude that I can absolutely appreciate.
But here’s my question: does getting to know the cover model in any way make him less attractive to you? Or more? Or do you prefer to superimpose your own fantasy into the image of the hero and ignore the cover altogether?
And also, what about the more popular female cover models? Are there profiles of them? I can’t find any.
