Remind me not to compliment authors' covers.
Was on Edelweiss, going through my author list (see Reading Wishlist on my blog) and updating my "Anticipating" list on Edelweiss. I'd heard a book was getting a new cover, but hadn't seen it yet. Saw it on Edelweiss, thought it was gorgeous, and told the author so, including the Edelweiss link so she knew the source.
I don't know what I was expecting; maybe an "I like it too" reply? Instead I received something along the lines of, "Scooped again. I'd hoped to get to reveal it myself."
Um...OK. I get that. But why are you telling the messenger (me) this, instead of your PUBLISHER who UPLOADED it to Edelweiss? I haven't shared the cover or the link anywhere else, just in that comment to the author.
*shrugs* Her problem, not mine.
EDITED TO ADD: She's sharing it now, thanking her publisher for the "gorgeous" cover. Thanking other authors for saying it's "gorgeous". When I said it was "gorgeous" earlier? All I got was what I posted above. *shrugs* I need to stop caring when I don't get thanked for helpful stuff. She's lucky other bloggers didn't see the cover and spread it around the Internet before I alerted her. *sigh*
