Carrie Vaughn: Funny, Crazy, Upsetting Publishing Stories

I do have a funny one. If you find a copy of the ARC of "Kitty and The Midnight Hour," you'll notice that it's a little different than the cover on the final published version. In the final version, there's a lot more skin visible--Kitty's pants ride lower, her shirt laces up in back instead of just being a tank top, and a big ol' tattoo is visible. Apparently, after the ARC came out, the art department got feedback along the lines of "Kitty needs to be a lot sexier." So that's what they did. I call the final version the "20% more skank" version. :)
