Will you guys stop complaining about the cover? Just assume that whatever you want to say, we already said. No. They are not reshooting the cover. The retailers liked the cover. It has naked people on it. Naked people sell books. That’s it.
Honestly, it’s like you people think we didn’t try. We tried. What if you tell them this or what if you draw them a picture, what if… The answer is no. It’s a done deal. Further attempts to explain to me all the things you think are wrong with the cover just insult my intelligence. We know. Our name is on the cover.
And please stop explaining to me how it’s not romance. It is. It just takes its time over 3 books. Burn for Me is the opening salvo.
::shakes head:: You would think you’re buying the cover and not 100,000 words inside it. 🙂
I have read After Dark by Jayne Castle. I want a dust bunny. Also I bought After Glow. Hehehehe. Also, as an aside, you are what you eat. I totally have an idea for a contemporary romance. Luckily, for everyone, I have way too much work.
I’m editing Innkeeper today. Feel my pain.
A faint chime tugged me out of my sleep.
Lora: This my is unnecessary. Who else’s sleep would it tug her out of? 😉
First freaking sentence. Could you not let me have one sentence? 😛
People ask sometimes if we get aggravated at the edits. If the edits aren’t aggravating, they weren’t thorough, but there is nothing more aggravating than getting back an edit and discovering pages and pages of uncommented text. Hemingway said it best.
Unfortunately I am also now keenly aware that since I’ve been writing in my chair, people have been throwing stuff on my writing desk. I suspect I was probably one of these people. I have a mountain of paper. My hands are shaking to clean it up, so I’ll have to do this first, before really digging into this chapter.
Update: AnnB fixed the cover for you.
