About me

Hello there, I'm Jimmy Thomas, cover model, and founder/owner of RNC; RomanceNovelCovers.com, RomanceNovelCenter.com and RomanceNovelConvention.com

Currently on over 7,500 romance novel covers; more covers than anyone in history (Fabio's on about 230), shot with hundreds of photographers and female models, and continually shooting on a regular basis for novel cover images, and CEO and founder of RNC (all 3 RNC businesses).

ROMANCE NOVEL COVERS (www.RomanceNovelCovers.com)
The 1st RNC business: The first stock image website specific to the romance novel industry. A website I created back in 2008 to provide the romance novel industry with stock images to be used for romance novel covers, website designs and promotional swag. Self-producing and directing all the RNC photo shoots gives the romance novel industry what they want and need for romance novel related images. From shooting every genre, look, theme, feeling, pose and expression, personally choosing the female co-models, photographers, wardrobe, locations, settings and props, to personally selecting the most marketable images from each image set within each shoot, cleaning, editing and cropping all those selected images, and upload them to the RNC stock image website for you to download and use either 'as is', or to alter to produce the novel cover art, website design, banner art, trading cards, promotional material, novel trailer stills, etc., you desire.

"I've been trying to figure out what sets Jimmy Thomas apart from the others and I've decided it's the emotion he brings to his photos. Yes, he's wildly good-looking but there's more going on than a pretty face: you can see what he's thinking and feeling and, for me, that's a very important distinction."
- Barbara Bretton

ROMANCE NOVEL CENTER (www.RomanceNovelCenter.com)
The 2nd RNC business: 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 networking community 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.

ROMANCE NOVEL CONVENTION (www.RomanceNovelConvention.com)
The 3rd RNC business: Also known as RNConvention, RNCon, or RNC2015 - The first and only 5-Day/4-Night,'All-Inclusive' Reader & Writer Romance Novel Convention, held in Las Vegas, Nevada (June 24-28, 2015).

PERSONALLY
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 hopeless romantic; I'm a Pisces :)

Continually keeping busy, thinking of new things & ideas, very adventurous & love to travel. I've lived in Boston, Tampa, The Netherlands & Los Angeles. I've been to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, London, Brussels, Paris, Venice, Rome, Pisa, Nice, The French Riviera, Barcelona, Gran Canary, all over Egypt [Luxor - a cruise down The Nile stopping and visiting Esna, Edfu, Komombo, and Aswan, then onto Cairo & Hurghada while scuba diving in The Red Sea] Jamaica, Cabo San Lucas, hiking & camping in Yosemite Park & Palm Springs & vacationed to many cities in the U.S. It's great to see & experience cultures & places you usually only see & read about in books.

I enjoy being active & workout regularly, but not a fanatic. I eat whatever I want & LOVE chocolate. Energy/dance music motivates me, I'm always wanting to help anyone & everyone I can; sometimes to a fault, I LOVE to cuddle & kiss more than anything!!! I'm not one for going out to clubs; I wore that out in my 20's, I prefer a movie, whether a rental or at the theater, dinner, conversation, road trips, camping or weekend getaways.

I've been studying/teaching martial arts & kickboxing off & on since 1992, I've been an NASM Certified Personal Trainer since the late 90's, a freelance Architectural Designer since the early 90's, been modeling since late 90's, I've written an action-adventure screenplay, designed many websites including my own, working on 8 retail inventions (one being organic), a new fitness DVD concept, a self-help book, and an animal abuse prevention organization. I love staying busy & learning & doing as many things as I can, and I'm always moving forward & never looking back :)
