Please don’t say you hate it or love the other one more, because: There’s no choice! It’s out of my hands! The major bookseller has spoken! Which is a good thing, that they care, rather than burying it in the back automatically or not taking it at all.
That’s publishing, baby! This entire experience has been a crash course/trial-by-fire/what other cliche is appropriate?
I hated that microphone on the other cover, anyway, even if I did love the colors and the precious jewels and other Bhutanese flourishes.
Thank you for your support.
PS Apparently there will be “special effects” on this cover, raised lettering, etcetera.
