UPDATE

SWAMP GIRL has arrived!
Now for the news. She-who-must-be-obeyed(my wife)looked the cover over and thought it a bit...much. So, I will leave the decision to those wanting it: Let it be, or I have to go in and tweak it(around the crotch area)to appear less obvious. If I get no responses I will leave it. Otherwise, I am content with the overall production. NOTE: the interior wilderness map did not  convey all the colors I had originally used into the shades of grey I would have liked; but since i put the entire map on the back cover IN COLOR, I think it compensates for the minor difficulty separating the various shades on the interior one.

That's just the pdf cover--not for distribution.
I rectified that on the print file.
I also left out the "Gropia" in, Sea Maidens of____
But I fixed that too.

Copies enroute to me now. Can only wait till they arrive.
Otherwise all is going as planned.


:(
I posted too soon.
The copies just arrived a minute ago.
While the interior and back cover meet my expectations, the front is not as sharp and clean as the image I posted in this thread.
There appears to be a bit of whitewash over it.
I freaked out, and went back to the original source that I had uploaded and, upon painstaking inspection, I realize that I am at fault--not Lulu.
It's not totally disfiguring(the image is intact, just slightly splattered with white on light green), but not what I was hoping.
So, now, what to do?
So before we go any further, I need input from you(that have paid).
Do you want a refund? Discount? or can I make it up to you with something else?
Please respond as soon as you can. The project cannot proceed until you do.
Sorry about this.

Update
I think I can solve the problem like this--
I will go back and correct the image, and reorder the prints for those that express they would like such.
And for those that would actually preferr the cover with error, I will discount it and send you  the difference to your account.

So, those wanting the Corrected Cover indicate so,
and those wanting the Error Cover indicate so,
and I will make those notations on the List.

It will take a bit more time now to get the Corrected Cover into everyone's hands, as I must fix it, reload it, and reorder the copies.
(Note: there is NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE for those wanting corrected covers)
Again, sorry about this,
and sorry for yet another delay.

Can you post pictures so we can compare?  I don't think I care, but a comparison might help.

The one in the thread is the blemished cover. And as you can see, it is not easy to tell that it is splattered.

I just finished correcting the image and loading it (the corrected cover) at lulu. I will order myself a proof to make sure it is fixed. (I also went back and did some work on the interior wilderness map to make the routes more distinct--it should be better too)

I don't think posting the corrected image will make a difference but I'll try.

Here's the corrected image--
Image
The only difference I can see in the image is down at the bottom of the water line. The Error Copy shows alot of fuzzyness around the ripples.
But, mind you, in the actual print, there is a lot of splatter and whitewash on the cover. When I get the corrected print back (another 10 days most likely), I'll know for certain it has been fixed or not.

Until then, I appreciate your patience, and will keep you updated frequently as possible.

I can tell some difference in the two but just barely.  I dont mind waiting for the corrected cover.  But at the same time I'd hate for you to be out any money for having to reorder the new copies.  :(
