RE: Being a Witch, and Other Things I Didn't Ask for and;
Oswald the Almost Famous Opossum

I recently won an award for both of my books above, and have made a image of the cover with the awards badges on each of them. I do put awards stickers on the books I sell directly, but I have not had the graphic of the covers changed to incorporate the bades.

In any event, I was wondering if it is allowed to replace the image of the covers with the images that have the badges on them? I obviously can send you guys the images.

Thanks for you help!

Best witches...I mean wishes, ;)
