Well, it’s happened. I got my book cover. It’s gorgeous, but (yes, there is a but), the coloring is wrong! Apparently this happens often. My hero is supposed to be blond with shoulder length hair. My heroine has brown hair.

On the cover, well, you can see below. It’s too late to change it. So my questions is, do I leave it as is, or change the hair color in my book? Should I at least change the hero’s hair color to a darker shade? As much as my hero is a blond to me (think Brad Pitt in Legends of the Fall), I just don’t feel right promoting him as having black hair.

My question is, what do you think? Would you be annoyed if you picked up a book that said the hero/heroine had certain hair color yet on the cover the coloring was completely different?

And remember to leave a comment on Polly’s blog below! Tomorrow I’ll announce the winner of her book!
