Devon, plenty of writers getting work published traditionally through small presses do have input on their cover art, so it's not a stretch to say trad covers need feedback too. Just trying to keep things fair is all.

Lin, I loved Sweet Spot but you're right, the cover is a bit dodgy. It's not the worst I've seen but it is a bit on the garish side and I never liked the font either. But like I said above, I'm all for clean lines and simplicity so thats more about personal taste than what works, because I'm no expert. I think if you kept the image also really clean and simple - not sure what exactly because I'm a bit braindead right now but maybe just focusing on one aspect of the story or a single character might give it more punch.
