Welcome to For Whom The Books Toll. Today is Author Wednesday and CJ Hollenbach is my guest today.

Not only is CJ a cover model, he's also an author. Check out his book, Confessions of a Romance Cover Model.
This is a book you'll want to read again and again.
 About the book:
More than just a pretty face, killer pecs and long blond locks, CJ Hollenbach has been a shiny fixture in the romance world for more than twenty years. You could hate him for being beautiful, but then you would miss out on his warmth, wit and hysterical accounts of his adventures.

In this memoir, filled with loads of color photos, CJ reprises some of his favorite tales previously published in blogs and magazines (including his column in Lady Jaided) and he has added some new ones that might surprise even those who thought they knew everything about him. Being a romance cover model is not all roses and pirate shirts, but CJ has navigated its treacherous waters with humor and grace—and lived to tell the tales.

Praise for Confessions of a Romance Cover Model:

"A salacious and sexy read!" Michael Heaton, The Cleveland Plain Dealer, Newspaper feature writer

"Kathryn Falk, Founder of Romantic Times Magazine.

"CJ is a great model and a pleasure to work with. He is on the cover of on one of my favorite covers that I did, Her Master And Commander, by Karen Hawkins. The perfect hero!" Jon Paul, Legendary romance novel cover artist.

The blond model was a contestant in the first ever "Mr. Romance Novel Cover Model Pageant" at a Romantic Times convention.

He was also the first male model to appear on the cover of an Ellora's Cave Publishing novel.
