Northwest Houston Chapter of RWA scores big name in Romance for All Day Workshop
The Good News? Jimmy Thomas flies to Houston for a whole day workshop.
The Really Good News? It’s open to the public. $25 early registration. $30 at the door.
We asked—who is Jimmy Thomas?
Jimmy Thomas, cover model, and founder/owner of RNC; RomanceNovelCovers.com, RomanceNovelCenter.com and RomanceNovelConvention.com and currently on almost 4500 romance novel covers; more covers than anyone in history.
More than anyone in history? Wait. What about Fabio?
Nuff said. So these websites you mention, what is RomanceNovelCovers.com?
The first stock image website specific to the romance novel industry. A website I created 5 years ago to provide the romance novel industry with stock images to be used for romance novel covers, website designs and promotional swag. I produce and direct all my RNC photo shoots, as well as personally select all the images for it, to give the romance novel industry what they want and need for cover images. From shooting every genre, look, theme, feeling, pose and expression, while personally choosing my female co-models, photographers, wardrobe, locations, settings and props, to coming up with the ideas of what poses, what theme and what styles, then personally selecting the most marketable images from each set within each shoot, then cleaning, editing and cropping all those selected images, where I then upload them to the RNC stock image website for you to download and use either 'as is', or to alter as you see fit to produce the novel cover art, website design, banner art, trading cards, promotional material, novel trailer stills, etc., that you desire.
Ohhh! I knew I’d seen that face before! And what about RomanceNovelCenter.com and RomanceNovelConvention.com?
A website I created to provide the Romance Novel Industry a place to all come together to provide their resources, promote their work, and offer their services to each other and to visitors. The first and only business networking website specific to the romance novel industry where you can create your own profile to advertise who you are and what you do in this industry.
"RNConvention 2013" - The first and only 'All Inclusive' Writers & Readers Romance Novel Convention, held in Las Vegas, Nevada August 7-11, 2013.
Okay, time to get personal! We won’t keep you long. Promise! Just a little bit, if you don’t mind? Who is Jimmy Thomas, the man?
I'm very ambitious, determined, passionate & goal oriented. Extremely down to earth, easy going, but can be very blunt, although w/good intent. Sarcastic at times, but also very focused & serious. Confident, young at heart, spontaneous & a go-getter! I analyze a lot, but always to figure out, learn & put into a positive light. I tend to learn things by trial & error, even if it's the hard way, which is a great learning experience. And I've always been a romantic; I'm a Pisces.
No way I’m missing this event. This man knows his stuff. Who doesn’t need a bit of branding and marketing in their endeavors?
