That doesn't sound like romance #humor

I talked to my mother today. During the course of the conversation, she said, "Your father saw your cover and voted for it."

Me: "That's great. Tell him thanks."

Grandma Snark: "I haven't figured out how to vote for it yet."

Me: "That's okay."

(Grandma Snark doesn't have email yet.)

Me: It's a new cover. Not a new book. The old cover looked too much like paranormal romance, and the story really isn't a romance."

Grandma Snark: "Won't that confuse readers?"

Me: "No, Amazon won't let them buy it twice. The next new book will have a similar cover except with two ravens and it's a sort of burnt orange. I thought the new look would have broader appeal, especially to men. Two thirds of the next book is action and the male POV."

GS: "Oh.  What's the new book about?"

Me: "A Valkyrie gets caught up in a tug-o-war between Odin and Loki as the world is ending."


Then, "That doesn't sound like romance."
