Working (hard) with a cover designer

I never knew that getting a cover would be so much work : )   But it’s been a very good experience.  Once I have the cover (paid my bills, etc. : ) I’ll pass on the name of the designer (not sure what the etiquette is concerning working with a designer, so I’ll play it conservative).  But so far it’s been great.  I’ve been asked very good questions (that I should have already been thinking about) by the designer.  Makes me feel like they are interested in my work and really want to do a good job.  Heh, spent a number of hours answering them.  Anyway, been fun so far.
