That's a shame. I know this author in a "we've chatted online" kind of way, she's a hard worker and has had some success with other titles but never hit the big time yet. This isn't going to help.

Baen consistently "plops" these terrible covers out. If they would sink for a *real* Art Director I bet they could increase sales by at least 20% per annum.

considering that this is a novel which (from the amazon description) I would describe as similar to many mangas, and considering that this is most likely by intention, I think it's quite a good and fitting manga-like cover

but you are right that many baen covers border on bad or are even worse

Hahahahaha! Oh my gosh, sorry, but if I saw that book I would HAVE to pick it up to see what it was about. Maybe it's actually very clever advertising on Baen's part (but if I actually started reading it, I would have to hide the cover inside another book, porno style).
