My new, NEW cover

My new new cover. I got such good input about the new cover from two people that I ditched that cover and came up with this.

The picture is by LA-based photographer Joshua Coleman, and I think it adds some important information for the viewer:  The suggestion, through its rainbow array, that this is an LGBT-themed work, without bashing you over the head with it; and the butterflies symbolize frivolity as well as transformation.  It balances out what could seem like a forbidding title by giving it the necessary tongue-in-cheek: “Hey, don’t take the slow painful thing too literally, we’re going to have fun, here.”
