Ready To Laugh? YOU NEED TO READ THIS. P.J. Jones' Spoof On Romance!

Welcome! I’ve decided to kick off my MONDAY COVERS IT promotion a little early with P.J. Jones', ROMANCE NOVEL cover. Gotta say, I love both the cover and the concept of this book. As we’re all still a little groggy from a busy weekend, this particular post is designed to be quick and to the point. And WAY TOO FUNNY! So grab a cuppa java and start your work week out right!

CONTEST! Can you think of another catchy line that could've been used on this cover? Leave it in a comment for a chance to win a free Ecopy of Romance Novel.

SKY:   PJ, tell us a bit about this cover

PJ:   Well, luckily for FLABIO, he was awarded the chance to be on the cover of ROMANCE NOVEL after doing a good deed, but you’ll have to read all the way to chapter sixteen without burning your ereader to find out why. I asked my cover artist to put FLABIO  in a kilt, because he’d already ripped his pirate shirt and men in kilts usually sell more books. Usually, FLABIO models for laxative and domestic violence advertisements, so we didn’t want to use the shots with him in the wife-beater and ripped jeans. Rather, we cropped a shot of him standing on a scale and pasted a kilt over his XXL boxers.

SKY:  OMG, can’t stop chuckling. Flabio! Too much. Laxative and domestic violence ads?! *snorts* Suppose somebody has to step up to the plate, eh? Ohhh, that poor kilt. Has this cover won any awards yet?

PJ:   Well, not yet, but FLABIO is really hoping for a shot at winning RT’s Mr. Romance, 2011, so I suppose I’d better enter his cover in a few contests.

SKY:  LOL. Still laughing. Thanks for starting my Monday off right PJ!

Read a HOT LOVE SCENE from Romance Novel HERE.

A little bit about ROMANCE NOVEL…

Smella Rosepetal must find a millionaire husband to finance her baby’s heart transplant. She flies home to her deputy father’s ranch in Pitchforks, Texas, where she falls in love with Deadward Forest, a wealthy environmentalist vampire. 

When a deranged murderer is on the loose in Pitchforks, killing romance heroines, Deadward assumes Smella would be safer without him. Smella turns to her childhood friend, Snake Long, for comfort. But Snake doesn’t have the money to save her baby, so Smella places herself in peril in a desperate hunt for a rich husband.

Time is running out for Smella’s baby, and she must escape the Australian Outback, then face down Flabio, an overweight and disgruntled, aspiring cover model, plus enraged vampire wives and their homosexual, vampire, cowboy husbands, a jealous were-gerbil, James Bond, a drunk rodeo clown and Smella’s strange boyfriend who wants to drain her blood, yet is repulsed by her smell.

Purchase ROMANCE NOVEL at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Sky Purington said...

Great to have you over, PJ! I can't get over this book. What a great idea! Can't imagine how much material it took to make Flabio's kilt. ROFL!

PJ Jones said...

Easy, Sky. It takes a whole lot of stud to fill that kilt!

Renee Vincent said...

Oh this was a hoot! I was so NOT expecting this! What a great cover! hahaha

Love this interview! Sounds like a really fun book ;-) And boy, what a cover model! Do we even want to imagine what's under that kilt???

PJ Jones said...

KatieO, thanks for the compliment on my book. I try not to dwell on what's under that kilt, but I'll leave you to your FLABIO fantasies. Should I give him your number? LOL! PJ
