A thought for the day....

I've seen some very nice book covers this last year.    I have referenced two of my favorites below.

I loved this cover so much I asked the author for a digital file.

Daniel Dos Santos always rocks covers. 

My thought for the day is this:  What does an author do when the covers that are presented to them suck? Or worse yet have nothing to do with the story!   Does an author have say?  Can they veto it?  Can they say start over?  Or is it all a marking tool that they have nothing to do with?

Okay end my thought of the day.
