Cover Blunder - Original cover of 'Castles in the Air' by Christina Dodd

Every so often a cover blunder happens that somehow slips by the editors and makes its way into the finally copy. Such is the case of Christina Dodd's original cover for Castles in the Air. Have you figured out what's amiss? Well, if you take note, the heroine has a hand on the ground, one at her side, and her third hand is being held by the knight. Yes, that's right there is a third arm! Needless to say Ms. Dodd did not create a three armed heroine. I learned of the cover blunder from Ms. Dodd herself in one of her recent newsletters. This is the reason I always encourage people to go to author's websites. She has the full story complete with a video about the three armed woman there. So check it out! I'm sure it'll give you a good chuckle.
