Guest Post: How Paolo came to life - literally by Cassandra Carr #FMBAuthor

How Paolo came to life - literally
by Cassandra Carr

I'll set the's Romanticon 2012, and the first night of the conference. I'm a little nervous because I don't know too many people. So I'm talking to some authors I know, and being introduced to a couple of Cavemen. If you're not familiar with the Ellora's Cave Cavemen, they're gorgeous men who are contracted by Ellora's Cave as cover models. There were about 10 of them at Romanticon, but I hadn't met them all. The crowd parted, and on the other side of the room stood...Paolo. My mouth fell open and I'm pretty sure I punched my friend.

The guy was a Caveman. That was obvious, since he was shirtless and wearing a bow tie. I had to meet him.

I sidled over - seriously, I sidled - and introduced myself to him. He told me his name was David. We exchanged pleasantries, like "Tell me about a sexual position I can put in one of my books", which was my icebreaker, and "let me demonstrate it for you", which was his response. Pity he didn't demonstrate it WITH me, but I digress. I talked to David for a long time that night, and as we chatted I kept looking at him and thinking, "Oh my God, he's the spitting image of Paolo". I had already written Paolo's physical description when I met David, and it was like I was looking at a picture of David when I created Paolo.

Fast forward to
Saturday night, and I'm talking to Will Duke, one of the fabulous folks in EC's art department. I mention that David looks eerily like Paolo, and Will says, "You know you can request specific Cavemen, right?" I heard angels singing. A unicorn walked by. I grinned. I could have David on my cover.

I made a beeline for David and told him I was requesting him for my Velocity cover. He smiled one of his fabulous smiles, and the rest is history.
