Cover Girl

I have a confession to make.

I’ve harboured a dream, a desire, for quite some time. I’m sure it will come as little surprise considering this Antipodean’s fondness for exhibitionist self-portraiture.

Ever since I was old enough to appreciate its allure, ever since I could grasp its magnetism, I wanted to be the one gracing a glossy cover; to be the face or the body, to be the woman, who represents if not an ideal beauty then an idea, a mood, a sensation, a play on shadow and light, a feminine sensuality and sexuality born of the everyday.

It seems a certain Easily Aroused English gentleman has seen fit to make this dream a reality. This extremely fortunate Minx – and her self-portrait – adorn the cover of his newest collection of erotic fiction: Concupiscent


If, by some chance, you haven’t had the good fortune to stumble across his exquisitely erotic and decadent work, make haste… Go ... Read ... Indulge ... (And buy ...) You won’t regret it. You can trust me on that.

And once you’ve recovered from the sensual and carnal pleasures and exertions that invariably follow an encounter with such words, make your way back here. Why? Because I have some book news of my own coming your way very soon…

(To you EA, my heartfelt thanks and gratitude for thinking my image a fitting accompaniment to the wondrous words that invariably leave me in a tailspin. I am honoured to be your cover girl…)

Couldn't have picked a better model...

Green Eyed Frenchy said...

Easily Aroused has such a wonderful taste! He could not have chosen better :) And I'm impatient to learn more about your own book, Yay!

Warm hugs!

Adam: I'm so touched you think so highly of the photograph (and the words it accompanies). Thank you so much!

Max: Thank you, thank you. The book news is coming very soon. I'd never leave you hanging for too long, teasing and tempting you with little snippets. On second thoughts... ;)

Ella: Thank you very much, lovely. It's so good to see you about...

Lady Dragonfly: Ooh, I'm so happy you think so! And there will be more. Very, very soon...

Buddha: What a perfect thing to say...

Frenchy: You are too good to me, my gorgeous French morsel! I'll be posting about the book in the next week or so. Fingers crossed...

your image is fitting to accompaniment anything or someone *winks*



wondrous words do nothing to compare what you are, truly.

We are honoured to be caught in your web of desire

Supercock said...

Hard to think of a more appropriately exquisite cover girl!

Eden said...

WOw, congrats! That is certainly a gorgeous picture, you are indeed very alluring. 'Easily Aroused' couldn't have made a better choice.

GoodWill said...

Very cool, congrats Minx - it's an amazing photo, and certainly deserving of a cover.

(Although truth be told, when I read the title "Cover Girl" I immediately went to the cheesy NKOTB song from my youth...)

Lady Grinning Soul said...

I knew I recognised that cover girl! Gorgeous. Enjoy! I would. ;)

Mit©helangelo said...

Gorgeousness and slightly jealous... If one of the ladies is writing a book and needs a male model for the cover ;)

Cheeky Minx said...

Sir T: This is such high praise, sir. And to be honest, this Minx is rather chuffed you're enjoying her web...

Supercock: Really? You're too, too kind...

Eden: Thank you so very much, lovely. I feel very fortunate he thought me worthy...

GoodWill: I'm very touched you think so. (As for NKOTB, we might be showing our age with that reference. And by "we" I do mean both of us!)

LGS: I can assure you, I'm making the most of this. It could very well be the one and only! Aside from my own bit of book news...

Mit©helangelo: Then consider this your modelling message board...

"Attention, ladies: Male model seeking lusty authoress for book cover assignment. Click his, er, 'link'. You won't be disappointed!"

How does that sound, M? One last thing, thank you...

There are words inside the book? I haven't go past staring at the cover.

Cheeky Minx said...

Sir T: This is such high praise, sir. And to be honest, this Minx is rather chuffed you're enjoying her web...

Supercock: Really? You're too, too kind...

Eden: Thank you so very much, lovely. I feel very fortunate he thought me worthy...

GoodWill: I'm very touched you think so. (As for NKOTB, we might be showing our age with that reference. And by "we" I do mean both of us!)

LGS: I can assure you, I'm making the most of this, lovely. It could very well be the one and only! Aside from my own bit of book news...

Advizor: I'm sure you realise that's exactly the kind of comment that will keep me on side. Although, the words are too deliciously decadent to bypass...

Mit©helangelo: Since the Blogger bug swallowed up your comment, consider this your updated modelling message board...

"Attention, ladies: Male model (Mit©helangelo) seeks lusty authoress for book cover assignment. Click his, er, 'link'. You won't be disappointed!"

How does that sound, M? One last thing, thank you for the lovely comment (that's no doubt floating about in the electronic ether)...

Goddess Aphrodite said...

Absolutely stunning! Gorgeous photo...but then yours are very much so. What a fantastic dream come true.

Mine has been to be a belly-dancer...but it will not happen at this late stage...oh well.

A. :)

A stunning cover pic to grace a stunning collection of words from the Master of the blogosphere - you are undoubtedly its Mistress

Cheeky Minx said...

Goddess Aphrodite: I think you're selling yourself and your dream short. Much like fine wine, the best belly dancers are seasoned, nuanced and passionate, as well as beautiful. For me, time is the key factor in all of these facets. So, dance away... (And then snap a pic and share!)

Thank you so much for your touching and kind words... :)

Anon: To be considered Mistress to EA's Master is yet another dream come true (very quietly between the two of us). And for that very generous regard, I thank you...
