I started my writing career as a columnist and investigative reporter and eventually became the first woman editor of two different papers. Along the way, my team and I won numerous state and several national awards, including the National Journalism Award for Public Service.

Breaking Point cover news! We got him!

I just got confirmation from my editor that the photo shoot with Jed Hill happened and that he will be the model on the cover of my next I-Team book, Breaking Point. So, everyone, feast your eyes on Zach MacBride. Not sure what he's doing with boxing gloves. Maybe as part of staying fit — after all former Navy SEALs who become Deputy U.S. Marshals still need to stay in good shape — he took up boxing.

And football, too. Why not? Strap into some shoulder pads, grap a pig skin, skip the T-shirt and the athletic cup (he ain’t wearing one), and get hot and sweaty tossing the ball around. I’m all for that.

Though I think it’s safe to say that Jed Hill deserves the Gold Medal for Obliques, he has a beautiful body over all — and a beautiful face. I love the intensity of his gaze. I love the masculine jawline. I love the full lips.

The man is, in a word, purrfect. And he is the perfect Zach.

Neither my editor nor I have seen any of the art yet, but when I have something to show you, you know I will.

So, you ended up with an MTM anyway — just several hours late.

Yay!!! Congratulations, Pamela! How exciting that your vision of your hero will actually be smack dab on the cover of his own story! :oD

Ronlyn said...

my phone keeps ringing so I can't be more eloquent than that, but *oh be still my heart*

alba said...

Congratulations Pamela

going to get the icepack...

Kara C said...

Maybe late, but definitely worth the wait! And I'm so glad you 'got your man'. I've heard several authors say they get no say in their covers, and it's nice to know that at least for this book, the cover will match the picture you had in your mind of the character (and what a picture it is, huh?)

Debbie H said...

*swoon* *thud* I am overjoyed he is the one that's going to be on the cover. Even though I no longer have ovaries, the tissue where they were is twitching like crazy. LOL

Lori said...

Oh holy hell,.....I need to touch him, you know to make sure he is real. They just don't make real men look like that often enough...Screw being on the cover...he come inside my covers.

Anonymous said...

Wow! That guy is ... *fans self* ... what a catch!

Can't wait to see the cover art. Sizzzzzle.

Beanbag Love

JennJ said...

WOOHOOOO I am so happy for you Pamela!!!!! I am so so glad they got him for the cover shoot that is fabulous! Can't wait to see it and thanks for the great man candy for the day he is one hot man for sure! ;)

Christine said...

YAY! I bet this good news made the pain go away, at least for a little while...

and for some unknown reason, I'm having issues logging in.

Wow he is hawt and drool worthy. Yum Yum !

Mary G said...

OMG I'm so happy for you!! You know I'm an obliique girl & his are yummy. So if they make the movie can we have him for that too?

Diane W. said...

There are just no words for this latest bit of lusciousness. Good heavens, that man is perfect!! And, so perfect for your story. I am a complete lust bunny for him and proud of it!

Oh, and I seriously think Miss Natalie Benoit needs to "friend" him on Facebook. It makes me all twitterpated just thinking about it. I'm such a sap!

CONGRATULATIONS!! And, let us know when the posters of your cover are available. The giggly 7th grade girl inside me wants to hang it over my bed. I wonder what my hubby will think of that? LOL ;)


SN said...

I don't think there's much to add, other than YAY!

Everyone else has said it all...YAY! On the cover, between the covers, covering the walls - why not? The man is a work of art. But HOW could you torture someone who looks like that? lol!

Elise said...

Can't say much more, too much drool out of my mouth!!!

Rachel said...

YESSSS!!! Oh, this just made my day. I used to be on Team Juli-bean (I know he'd hate anyone calling him that, which is why I do it, hehe) but Zach is very, very quickly charming his way to the top. With a face and body like that, how could he not!?

Here's hoping you're also feeling better and better! The veggies from your garden must be amazing. :)

Luci said...

I came back from a trip to France and found this - cannot do more than sigh! *Sigh*.

Then "grin" - will soon be able to feast on the cover :).

Hope you are feeling better Pamela!

Jane said...

That's awesome news. Now I know how to picture Zach in my mind.

Lucy said...

OMIGOD!! How hot is he?!!! Whew! Congrats!
Better go before I slide off my chair (g).

Hope you're feeling better (hugs).

And what are the chances they will have the cover shoot in your neck of the woods? 'Cause wouldn't it be fun to go and *cough* adjust the clothes they wear in it?
