A $500 Cover Pose

I consider myself mostly retired from the cover pose game these days. But when Regina Yao of The Pixel Project asked me to help out with one of their fundraising drives, how could I say no?

A very generous donor contributed $500 to The Pixel Project for their work to end violence against women. For that donation, they got to choose a cover for me to try to duplicate. They decided to go with The Selection, by Kiera Cass.

Cover Pose for The Selection

Thanks as always to my wife Amy, who took the photo and helped me get the pose right. Which included positioning a large exercise ball between my legs to get the poofy-skirt effect…

I have never understood how that sniffing the armpit pose was considered sexy, but that cover sold a whole slew of books! (And your post is sooooo cackle-worthy!)

I'll bet that original cover model is wishing she had a beard now...it goes so nicely with the dress.

That pose looks so awkward to me and not at all attractive. Even when you do it. :)
