Gena's Knees

Recently, Gena Showalter, my dear friend and one of my FAVORITE authors, was involved in a serious interpretive dance accident. Though the "choreographer" Jill Monroe (another friend and great author) claims Gena is not seriously injured, I have used spectral analysis of Gena's knees to show just how deep the bruising is.

Amazingly enough, the patterns of her bruises seem to form the faces of Lucien and Maddox, the heroes of her first 2 Lords of the Underworld Novels (BTW, I've read both ARCs, and these are Gena's BEST yet - but wear gloves when you pick them up because these covers are hot enough to singe your fingers!!). Lucien is the Keeper of Death and Maddox is the Keeper of Violence - appropriate considering the trauma my dear friend has obviously gone through. You can see her interpretive dance at Author Talk. Click on the Kresley Cole interrogation...oops...I mean "interview."

If you're wondering about Reyes, Keeper of Pain, all you have to do is look at Gena's derriere to see the damage:

I know - it's painful to look at.
So let's all help heal Gena's poor knees. I think buying copies of her latest releases and upcoming releases will send a wave of healing love. (And perhaps a can of Nair for her behind).

I thought I told her to keep that thing waxed.

Jill Monroe said...

I can totally see those faces - outstanding analysis, Kelli - I'm thoroughly impressed!

Rinda - I'll start reminding her, too!

Need. . . air. . .

Sadly, that picture was taken AFTER I'd used the Nair. Guess I should have applied the second (and third) layer. But how did you remove the skull and crossbone tattoo on my ass?

Kelli McBride said...

I guess the spectral force of Reyes' pain temporarily caused the tattoo to go subdermal.

I saw something like this on Torchwood. Or was it X-Files?

Michele said...

Are you SURE that last pic is Gena and not the gnome?


You are always fun, Kelli!
School is almost out, you must be thrilled!

Hope all is well with you.

Kelli McBride said...

Michelle! I've been seriously sick since school was out (the body always collapses as soon as I start grading those last portfolios!). But I'm better! However, I OBVIOUSLY do not check my own blog very often, or I would have seen your comment a lot earlier!! LOL

Christine Rimmer said...

Okay, Kelli. You're really scaring me now. But don't stop!

Kelli McBride said...

Hey, Chris, it's Gena's hairy butt that should scare you, not me. ;-)
