I did tell my editor that Talia should be darker, though I'm not sure whether that feedback reached the artist. But I had also asked if the author could model her after my daughter. My little girl isn't white, but she's not as dark-skinned as Talia, so I suspect I may have undercut myself on that one.

Thanks for commenting. I've edited the entry to say "pushed harder" instead of "pushed back", because now that I think about it again, I think that's how you put it before.

Readers do notice, for what it's worth. I flipped to the front cover and tried to figure out who was who as you described them. And while I did figure it out--except for the blonde, it was more from clothing and such.

And... horridly I can't remember which one, but I think it was Talia... I also expected one of them to be more curvy/sturdy... ...and for Snow to be a touch more busty. (Though I can see not wanting to fall into the busty/comicbook mold.)

Physically, I think he did a little better with Talia on the cover for Mermaid's Madness. Her arm and shoulder in particular look more muscular than on the first book.

As for Snow ... yep. I think my comment to the editor was that I REALLY didn't want a "Chain mail bikini babes" cover, but if Snow was showing some cleavage, that would probably be appropriate for her character :-)
