Do I have any input on the cover art? Not usually. Sometimes I'm shown what amounts to be the final decision and I'm supposed to say, "Great, I love it." I usually do. I wish I'd had more say on the art of Hell's Bay. It shows a part of the Everglades that is filled with cypress trees. True, there are cypress swamps within the Everglades. But not any around where I was setting the novel. Is that too picky?
