Remember this post, in which I expressed surprise at the bare belly on the cover of the large-print hardcover edition of my second inspirational romance novel?
As per my contract with Harlequin, I was to receive three copies of the book "if available." Rather than leaving things to chance, I ordered a copy from Amazon. It arrived today, and was I ever surprised when I opened the box and saw this:
Yep, they changed the cover.
I'm not entirely certain that the new cover represents progress. If you'll click on the pic to make it larger, you'll notice that the heroine has lost her wedding ring--and the hero's still not wearing one.
I can't help but wonder if sales are being hurt or helped by the fact that Thorndike's website is still showing this as the book's cover:
Listen, folks. I just write the books. Don't blame me for the covers, okay?
