A little over a month ago, after completing my run-down of the 2014 Romance Novel Convention, I promised my readers some more RNCon themed fun. Well, I've brought you interviews with RNCasanova Kaden James and Mr. Casanova 2014 Weston Bouchér. If you haven't read the interviews yet, be sure to check them out. Both these guys are totally awesome, wonderful people who, IMHO, definitely deserve lots love and attention from my fellow romance readers and writers.:-) Now I'm bringing you a huge RNCon prize package giveaway.

I had the privilege of meeting today's Hump Day Hunk at the Romance Novel Convention a couple of weeks ago, where he was one of the RNCasanovas. I only had the opportunity to talk with him for a few minutes, but in that brief amount of time, he struck me a sweet, kind, generous and truly gentle soul who is very genuine and humble about his good looks and amazing talents. He's done quite a bit of modeling, including being on the covers of two books already, with hopefully many more to come, but his true passion is music. He's a gifted singer and songwriter who has been writing and performing his own music since he was only twelve. He's been an MTV featured artist, his song “A Boy Like Me” is the theme song for the TV show, “The A-List: New York,” and his music has been heard on several other TV shows too. He's currently an indie music artist who is seeking a record label to represent him so that he can realize his dream of going on tour. When he isn't busy modeling and playing music, he's also writing a book series. This guy is truly multi-talented, full of ideas, and seems to have the positive attitude and drive to make things happen. So, without further ado, here's today's Hump Day Hunk, Kaden James, known to his music fans as merely KADEN. Kaden generously agreed to an interview with me, so enjoy!

The fifth and final day of the Romance Novel Convention was a lazy day for me. The only event that day was the live photo shoot featuring our wonderful RNCasanovas. I was too worn out to put in much effort to get there early, so I didn't end up moseying in until around 1:30 in the afternoon. Needless to say, by that time, two of the Casanovas were already done with their part of the shoot, but I enjoyed observing the remainder of it. I got a little taste of what goes into making all those great photos we see on book covers.
I also got to witness a little bit of fun on set as photographer Bruce Heinsius got in front of the camera to perform his signature flying kick with RNCasanova Weston. To accomplish this he, of course, had to turn the camera over to someone else. At first, that person was my hubs, whose immediate reaction was, “What? Me?” as he found a heavy and no doubt very expensive piece of equipment being placed in his hands. Hubs gave it his best shot, but alas, his finger was not fast enough on the trigger. He decided someone else with more experience should take the reins and handed the camera off to David Nicholl, who after a few tries of his own, finally captured the perfect shot.
