We also decided to let HC go with the cover they really love for BiM, with some editing. I feel like a big prude, because essentially I was telling them I thought the cover was too explicit and over-the-top sexy -- who ever thought I would be on that side of that argument??? But it just didn't feel right for my book. They're going to tone the photo down a bit, and I think it's going to be fine. I actually think the colors and layout are really striking and inviting, so while I may still mourn my old cover for a bit, I think I can be happy with the new one too. As Jed says, "Change bad." Or at least it can feel bad, 'til you get used to it.
