Romance Trading Cards!

I first heard about Romance Trading Cards from author Jeannie Lin. Having collected Charlie's Angels Trading Cards when I was a kid, I was immediately excited by the idea and ready to run out an order them right away. Then I remembered I first had to pick which characters I wanted to feature!

After thinking about it for a little bit, I decided to go with Drake Parrish, the hero from DEAD SEXY and Trace McCord, the hero from GHOST HUNTER. Okay, so I was off and running again to order them! Then I realized I needed to put some stats on the back of the cards!

So, I did some more thinking and came up with what I think are some pretty fun details about each hero. On the back of each card, you'll find the hero's name, occupation, strength, weakness and his best line.

I really love the way they came out, and if they're as popular as I hope, then I'll get some made for some of my other characters!



Drake Parrish from DEAD SEXY!







Trace McCord from GHOST HUNTER!










Oh, almost forgot! I'll be handing them out at Lori Foster's Get Together and Ellora's Cave RomantiCon, so if you'd like to add them to your collection, come on over and see me!

Great cards, Paige! When I decided to make mine, I just knew I was going to drive myself crazy because I'm so not a graphics type person, but I actually enjoyed making mine. It was addicting, really, LOL
