Oh, Monday.
c is for cat
Many of you may have wondered if I have seen the discussion and letter-writing on behalf of the proposed cover of The Habitation of the Blessed.

I have.

In fact, it's been seen far and wide.

What I know today is that there will be a redesign of the cover, with input from me. Hopefully this will not delay the book, but it might.

I have optimism that things will be worked out now. I am grateful both to you all who cared so deeply about the book and to Night Shade who responded so quickly with reassurances. It will be a good book, and a beautiful one.

All will be well.

...wait. Am I reading this right? Fans saw the cover, disliked it, spoke up, and the publisher responded? By changing the cover? As if the fans knew what they were talking about or something?


Rly? That's gotta be a sign the apocalypse is nigh. Or, that you landed an exceedingly awesome and nice publisher.

I didn't dislike the previous cover. I thought it was kind of pretty (disclaimer: I know nothing about perspective or art or anything) but it didn't look like a Catherynne Valente book, if that makes any sense. I thought it wouldn't be what it appeared to say on the tin, but I wasn't sure if that would necessarily be bad.

Anyway, my wittering aside, go, Nightshade, you are awesome.
