Cover within epub file

I posted a similar question in the recipes area and was told this might be a better place.

How do I create a single Epub file with the cover art (for which I paid a pretty penny) included, so that it shows up as a thumbnail in my Nook library?

I keep getting the generic Calibre cover instead.

Thanks and any help is appreciated...

You must convert the epub to embed the cover

Thanks for responding, but how does this work? Can you explain the steps?

Thanks

Thanks again to both who responded. Once I figured out where the change cover art dialog box was, it did just what I wanted.
