Usually, the response is, but it's lovely, because we can't see inside the author's head, only the outsiders view - the reader's view. But, because we've been there, we do understand the pain.
For once in my life, I have absolutely no complaints about a cover; I hoping you're going to overlook my whinge about the lack of purple hair a few weeks! I've got over it - it was easy enough because I never expected it in the first place.
I have now have all three covers for my ESCAPE AROUND THE WORLD book, A WEDDING AT LEOPARD TREE LODGE - it's rare for me to have an Australian cover this early but I have the lovely Bronwyn Jameson to thank for that. She got hold of this one early to go with an article appearing in the RWAus magazine in May.
