Two More for the After Dinner Crowd

We’re well past the $13,000 mark with four and a half hours to go! Every time I try to predict how much we’re going to make, y’all blow right through it. I thought $10K was a long shot, and then today I was thinking it would be awesome if we could hit $12.5K.

At this point, I’m not even going to try to guess whether or not we’ll make it to the $15,000 goal. I’m just going to say thank you and put up another pair of cover poses.

The fundraiser runs through midnight tonight!

First up, we have Twisted by the delightful Jennifer Estep. This pic nicely demonstrates both the boobs-and-butt pose and the foreheadectomy epidemic sweeping the genre.

I also did my best to match the anthology Fangs for the Mammaries, edited by Esther Friesner. I was delighted to have a story in an earlier volume in this series. Friesner puts together such fun stuff.

I definitely didn’t get the angle right in this one, but it was the best I could do without a much bigger box. I’m just sad the pink fangs don’t show up more clearly.

I think that folk who wear clothes like that invest in lots of double sided tape.

In fact, a brief sojourn with Google and suitable key words (the safest would be "dress tape" but I only found that after finding um... less safe... ones) will show there is an entire universe of such specialized tape available for such purposes. That said, I don't think I've ever been quite so glad to be more the tuxedo kinda girl than the dressy cleavage kind...

Good thing 'tis New Year's Eve, champagne will undoubtedly cure too much knowledge.

Happy New Year to all!

Jim, that shirt "works" with very careful tailoring and tape.

I think staying very, very still would also be a requirement. Otherwise you're a vampire with a wardrobe malfunction.

"How does that Shirt Even Work? I'm thinking maybe Piercings and Magnets?"

Thanks for the laugh! Rofl'ing over here.

Piercings and magnets?


I vote, Krazy GlueTM.

I salute you, Mister Hines. You, and your wife's wonderful eye towards aiding you in these poses and shots.

Oh, and your cat, too. ;)

I know this isn't really the point, but you look really awesome in that first cover pose.

Also, keep up the good work :)

Heh. Thank you.

You know, you need bigger boobs to make that first one work. Since you've raised so much money for the charity, maybe they'll give you a bit to spring for a pair..

Great work, as always. Firing up my credit card to get in under the wire...

Oh, and Friesner is the bomb.

To this day, my sale to Friesner's "Chicks" anthology is one of the short story sales I'm most proud of.

She's on my "authors I would love to meet" wishlist :-) I love funny, and she is FUNNY.
Jan. 1st, 2013 03:10 am (UTC)
And it goes without saying that having a story in one of her anthologies would be a dream.

Bravo! The sheer volume of pose photos is really highlighting that this isn't isolated, it's EVERYWHERE!

Thanks again!

PS: My husband is impressed that you've come up with an entirely new way for a writer to procrastinate writing! :D

He's absolutely right :-) I only just started on draft four of the book a few minutes ago. I meant to get a lot more done today, but there was POSING to be done!

Priorities. it's all about priorities.
Jan. 1st, 2013 03:11 am (UTC)
Also--happy New Year, Jim!

The Purina box is a particularly nice touch.

Jan. 2nd, 2013 01:38 am (UTC)
I work with what I have on hand :-)

I'm surprised how closely you can match the first pose. Was it very uncomfortable?
Jan. 2nd, 2013 03:07 pm (UTC)
It wasn't the worse one I've done, but it definitely wasn't pleasant on the spine.
