January on Romance Lives Forever had two ties, one for third
place and a three-way tie in fourth. We had 1 model interview, 16 author
interviews, 4 character interviews, 3 book releases, and 2 articles, and one new
feature article for 28 posts in a 31 day month.
We introduced a new feature this month: Cover Love. This is a short intro to
a book and includes only a blurb, buy links, and social media contacts for the
author. We use it if one of our scheduled authors is unable to appear, and no
other material is on hand. If you would like to submit your book for this
feature, see the FAQ page for more information.
The top posts are all interviews this month. Here are the top five posts (judging
by page hits).
Of special notice: In the history of the blog, only eight
other people had more hits than our first place winner, John Steiner.
1. John Steiner
2. Charley Descoteaux
3. Patricia Yager Delagrange 
3. EmKay Connor
4. Synithia Williams
4. Gemma K Murray
4. John Quinlan (fitness model)
5. Tara Lain

John Quinlan, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. We’re excited
to have you here today. Thank you for taking time to talk to us. Let’s jump right
in with questions.

Please give us your professional bio.
I have been involved in athletics, professional wrestling, fitness
and modeling over the years since the age of 19. I have been an image model for
dozens of apparel brands over the years along with appearing in television documentaries,
commercials, art gallery print work and having my likeness used on children’s literature
book covers. I have been a spokesmodel for apparel brands as far away as Japan and Asia just
to name a few. I am also a Physique model competitor and a current Romance Novel
Cover model as well. I have been a supplement company image model who is currently
signed as a sponsored athlete with Athletic Xtreme Supplement Co.
Now, tell us about you as a person.
To be honest I am happy-go lucky type guy that is ego and attitude
free. Once you are my friend I will always do my best to be one of the good guys.
People tell me I have a unique look that sets me apart from other models in the
business. I love being unique and different as many have often told me, “hey, I
remember you….you’re the model guy with the tattoos.” I have been referred to as
the most tattooed male romance cover model in the world by people in passing which
I think is very cool and I am truly humbled by all the kindness I have received
from all the amazing people like you Kayelle.
You have many tattoos. Which one is the most significant to
you and why?
Yeah, I have a bunch which includes 2 half sleeves, both wrists,
stomach, back and fingers etc. I am told I wear them well so it’s all good as I
try to keep myself in good physical condition so my ink compliments my body. The
most significant is a tough one to answer as they all have deep meaning but one
I will mention is on my left wrist which is the oriental Kanji “Family” symbol inside
my left wrist that represents my children.
What part did your upbringing have in who you are today?
I was brought up to treat people the way they want to be treated
and I think if you ask anybody that really knows me they would say I am the poster
boy for this.
What do you wish was different about your past and why?
I believe everything happens for a reason. All the events that
have taken place in my past have brought me to this point I am at right now so really
wouldn’t change much. If I had to be honest the only topic I would like to see removed
from my past would have to be all injuries I sustained throughout my years in the
fitness world. There are too many to name but they were always preventing me from
being 100%.
As a child, who was your best friend? Tell us about him/her.
My best friend was my dog London. He was a Golden Retriever and he lived
to be 16 years old because he was loved so much. I had lots of great friends that
I went to school with as a child but this dog was the best man! Still miss him as
he represents my childhood.
Who is your childhood hero?
As a boy I was a huge baseball fan and being from Boston growing up in the 80’s
Wade Boggs was my childhood hero. I remember the very first time I saw him at Fenway Park
and he was God like. I collected all of his cards so when I saw him in person it
was very memorable.
What’s your favorite movie of all time?
Great question Kayelle, I would have to say ‘Wedding Crashers’
as it is one of those movies I can watch over and over again and it is still funny
Imagine you could spend as much money on your hobby as you
liked and not worry about the cost or place to keep things. Describe your hobby
and what the area would be like where you indulge in it.
I would collect everything from classic cars, trucks and motorcycles
with a mega storage place to show them off where I and all my friends could enjoy
them. Guys with tattoos are supposed to like this stuff! Ha ha ha!
Describe a place of perfect refuge.
Have you ever seen the Corona
beer commercial of the guy sitting there in the chair and you see him from the back?
He reaches over and takes a sip from the Corona
bottle and skips a stone in the beautiful green/blue water while he just sits in
the warm sun on the beach without a care in the world. That is my perfect refuge.
If you could time travel, what era would be your first stop?
The 1950’s! I loved all the old school sports from that time
and I was also a big fan of the movie, ‘Back to The Future’ as a kid. It was a simple
time and I would love to see just how sweet it was.
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t
done yet?
Jump out of a plane would be really something. Hopefully the
parachute would be nice to me and open up on time and not get jammed up!
Are you a cat person or a dog person?
Dog baby! I have nothing against cats or people who have them
as I am a true animal lover. Love em’ all BUT I did grow up with many canines in
my house so I am a bit biased here.
Do you prefer light or dark chocolate or no chocolate at all?
Everybody has to love chocolate as I can eat pounds of the stuff
in one sitting! I love all chocolate as I don’t discriminate but if I was to be
picky and choose I would have to say light or milk as the dark taste is a bit stronger.
But really just give me a wheelbarrow of it all mixed up and I will enjoy shoveling
it down no problem!
What do you wish I had asked you? Please ask and answer it
I often get asked this question as a model, “Will you ever go
all the way?” I am surprised you didn’t ask this but my answer to this is if the
money is right and all the “stars in the sky align perfectly” baring all is never
out of the question.

Fun Questions — Fill in the Blanks

I love pizza with extra cheese.
I’m always ready for a challenge.
When I’m alone, I wish I wasn’t alone.
You’d never be able to tell, but I have scars.
If I had a halo it would be because I was good to others and
earned it.
If I could live everyday like it’s my last I’d die
a happy man with no regrets.
I can never have an attitude towards great people in the Romance
Model world like Kayelle Allen
because it’s the people like her that make
models like me, without people like her guys like me are nothing.

Upcoming Appearances

I have a few but the only one I can confirm right now is the
2013 RT Booklovers Convention in Kansas
City. I will be there all day Saturday May 4th.
