Cover for SF novel Higher Mission

My cover has just arrived for my science fiction novel Higher Mission.  The novel will release in October this year.  I have yet to read the final version and when my editor sends it I'll have ten days to read it and send it back. I questioned the man on the cover holding a blaster.  My main character, Cramer does not use a blaster and in fact never held one.  He kicked a blaster out of an enemy's hand once.  My editor told me oftentimes that the cover captures the essence of the novel.  In this case it pictures Cramer as a person who plunges headlong into any situation he faces.  Put that way I guess it is okay to show him holding a blaster.  I won't have a buy link until a week or so before release.  I plan to have book markers made with my romance novel cover and blurb on one side and the SF novel cover and blurb on the other side.  I'm going to a book signing for my romance novel on September 28 in Paducah, KY.
