Who Do You See?

NJ Romance Writers at the Red Bank Street Fair 2007
I know a lot of authors. We hang out together. I buy their books. Then I read them. When I do, it doesn't matter what the heroine looks like on the cover because as I read the book I see the author in my mind.

Lately, I'm reading Jenn Nixon's book, Lucky's Promise and in my mind, I see Jenn as the main character. I've known Jenn for many years. She's in the Liberty States Writers Fiction group. Her heroine does not look like her at all, but my mind ignores that fact.

This is not the first time this phenomena has happened to me. If I know and have talked with the author--that's who becomes the main character in their book in my mind.

Does this happen to you?

Hahah OMGosh really? that's too funny. I haven't actually done that before! Lucky is awesome, she kicks ass, but yeah, we don't look alike at all! LOL

I know you aren't supposed to look like her, but in my mind you do. :-)
