For years, I’ve been wanting to create trading cards for the Shanhasson series, but I couldn’t find Gregar. Now I’ve got that sneaky Death Rider nailed down, I’m having a hard time finding Sig. What is it about these assassins that make them so hard to find? (For Gregar, it was his hair and I finally gave up. For Sig, it’s his period Regency clothing!)
I’m going to try again, though, because of Romance Trading Cards. What a cool idea! I don’t plan to go to the big RT/RWA conferences this year, but I’d still like to have them. Maybe I could get some kind soul to take them for me. But I have to find the stock photos first.
That’s where you guys come in. Please help me find Lord Sigmund Regret. He’s a renowned assassin throughout the galaxy for as much as his clothing and manners as his killing ability. He’s not a very young man — late twenties or early thirties. The kicker: he has blond hair. Try and find a romance hero with blond hair. Sigh. It’s hard! Now add period clothing. Or even steampunk clothing. Anything with a cravat or a vintage look will be acceptable. I don’t want a generic man titty photo. I’d prefer vertical, with as much of his gorgeous clothing as possible, but I’m flexible.
The catch: it has to be from a stock photo site where I can buy the picture and download it for my promo use. I have a membership at iStockPhoto and I’ll probably join ShutterStock since I found Lady Wyre from the cover there. I can’t do general internet shots of models, movies, etc. It has to be royalty free or I can’t use it. I’m willing to join any of the major stock sites to get the RIGHT picture.
If you find Sig for me, I’ll give you a $20 gift certificate to the online bookstore of your choice.
